Ancestors (For Liam)

I only know you
From a faded photograph
But when I read your words
I always see your eyes
I see Ireland unfree
I see memories that I can't
Quite reach.

Perhaps I knew you
At one time, or maybe we,
We ourselves alone
Will always be connected
We fight, we strive, we thirst…
All of us, we even reach with words
For justice.
