Ann Cronin

Ann Cronin, Clara RdSo humble and gentle and free of conceit
She was one of the nicest people of Millstreet
So sad for to learn Ann Cronin has passed away
In the quietness of St Mary’s she is at peace today

A good mother to her children and to the late Kevin Cronin a good wife
Ann Corkery her maiden name she lived an honorable life
The youngest of three girls a sister to Margaret and Noreen
In the past in Millstreet’s West End out walking she often was seen

But this is going back many Seasons in time
When i was much younger and nearer to my life’s prime
And though Ann is one of many i have not seen for years
I feel sure her parting from life would not have gone without tears

For she was a beautiful person indeed
And of more of her kind the Human World is in need
She never sought the limelight or of anyone had a bad word to say
And about her she did have a beautiful way

The clock on our lives ever ticking away
And for all of us there is a last night and day
The winds of November blow with a cold chill
Above where the heart of Ann Cronin is forever still.
