An t-Slighe / The Way

Standard

I am the sum of all who have helped me
all who have shown me the way
I am the sum of all who have offered me
their tomorrow’s are my today

I am the sum of all who saw in me
what I did not see in myself
the sum of a precious journey…
The path beyond myself

I am the sum of all who gave to me
what I could not find inside of me
I am the song that was sung to my heart
echoing beyond my darkest night

the sum of a thousand tender gifts
Speaking love and beauty and dignity…

    Ms Bain has the ability to teach with her words, showing us truths from different perspectives. She writes with a lovely type of melancholy, but also with strength. Her words enlighten with a profound simplicity, beautifully composed.
