The Way, The Truth, The Life.

You left the path that leads away from pain

and took the way you cannot take again.

You trusted that the search for truth was sweet,

but bitter fruit you did not fear to eat.

You loved, and so you left the light of day

and found a greater light a darker way.

A Glasgow Elegy, by Grahame Davies
