We are one body

If I don’t weep for your children

How can I weep for my own?

My heart is no greater than yours,

It is not more tender, more loving.

If I do not know your pain

How can I cry for myself?

If I do not recognise your love

How can I know my own?

My love is no brighter than yours,

The bird of  my love flies no higher,

The well of my love is no deeper,

The child of my love is not more precious.
