To Angela Jeff and Gracie on emigrating to New Zealand on 18/9/05
Bon voyage and au revoir
Sorry you are going so far.
When you reach that distant land
Reach out and feel me touch your hand.
Feel my heart reach out and say
I will miss you every day.
But my thoughts can travel too
And they`ll wing their way to you.
You will know `though far away
In my heart you`ll always stay.
God gave you the chance to be
Far across the wide blue sea
Take His gift and live it well
Darling girl the truth to tell
I would take the chances too
I am glad He gave to you.
All the world to be your own
Even `though you`re far from home
Distance darling in the heart
Means we`ll never really part.
Good luck, good health, be happy too
And take my love along with you.
