Reaching Out/ Ag Síneadh

Reaching out

He left me,

Empty-handed,

Empty-headed,

In an empty room,

Stripped bare,

With empty sleeves,

And a hallow ribcage,

However, that may be,

There is still something left in me,

Something that reaches.

 

Ag síneadh

D’fhág sé mé,

Mo dhá láimh,

Chomh fada lena chéile,

‘s ceann cipín mé,

I seomra folamh,

Nocht folamh,

Ar mhuinchillí folmha,

‘s creat na n-easnacha follamh,

Bíodh sin mar ‘tá sé,

Tá rud éicint fanta ionam,

Rud éicint a shíneann.
