  • Let's go lie on the jetty
    Stop the world for an hour or so
    Christmas day is tomorrow
    A light nor-easters begun to blow

    Remembering another time
    Twenty-one and broken hearted
    Seeking my grandfather's spirit
    Spiralling in the Milky Way above

    The wind in the she-oaks
    Whispering words of my mother
    The ghosts of Christmas past
    Circling the Southern Cross

    Alone but never alone
    Where ever we are
    They are part of us
    All the ones we have loved
    All the ones we love
