„You gave your body to the lonely,
They took your clothes.
You gave up a wife and a family
You gave your ghost.
To be alone with me.
To be alone with me
You went up on a tree.
I've never met a man who loved me.“

—  Sufjan Stevens, "To Be Alone with You"

„For life and love you gave to me
I give my thanks for eternity.“

—  Bobby Sands Irish volunteer of the Provisional Irish Republican Army 1954 - 1981
Context: A guide to me in times of plight A princess like a star so bright For life would never have been the same If I hadn’t of learned what small things came. So forgive me Mum just a little more For not loving you so much before, For life and love you gave to me I give my thanks for eternity.
