Language of Love

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

She need not utter a word

she speaks the language of love

with her hands.

She need not do a thing

she creates the language of love

with her limbs.

She need not promise a thing

she bestows the language of love

with her prayers.

She need not hide a thing

she reveals the language of love

with a look.

She need not wear a thing

she nurtures the language of love

with her standing.

She needs nothing at all

the complete language of love

is her every breath.

Teach us to breathe once more

to kindle the fire of love

as one.

Teanga an Ghrá

Ní gá di faic a rá

labhrann sí teanga an ghrá

lena lámha.

Ní gá di faic a dhéanamh

cruthaíonn sí teanga an ghrá

lena géaga.

Ní gá di faic a gheallúint

bronnann sí teanga an ghrá

lena guíochan.

Ní gá di faic a cheilt

nochtann sí teanga an ghrá

lena féachaint.

Ní gá di faic a chaitheamh

beathaíonn sí teanga an ghrá

lena seasamh.

Ní gá di faic na ngrást

is í teanga iomlán an ghrá

gach anáil aici.

Múin dúinn análú as an nua

chun teanga an ghrá a adú

as béal a chéile.
