Irish traditions

I have never seen so many
Of my family in one place

Our little house is so full

That there's very little space


My brothers and my sisters

Aunts and Uncles, cousins too

Friends I knew from years ago

I can't believe this is true


Their lips are busy moving

But I don't hear a noise

Seems this room of people

Have all lost their voice


They're filling up their glasses

While smiling all the time

As someone in the kitchen

Opens another bottle of wine


I try to join festivities

To grab a piece of cake

This feat too beyond me

These people are at my Wake
