A song for my Mum

Let’s travel on the Mothership
Going at the speed of light
Visit all our other worlds
Where everything’s alright

Lean against the wind and rain
Gaze across the sea
Singing songs from long ago
Dancing you and me

I’ll go to sleep and dream about
Our cottage in the sky
I’ll read the note you left me there
And promise not to cry

About caravans and riverbanks
And fishing rods and reels
Woolworths on the main street
Guitars and bicycles

Dinner table conversations
Dishes in the sink
Homemade Christmas decorations
And now, a final drink

Onwards to the end of time
We run this crazy race
See you at the poolside bar
Beyond the edge of space
