I was a beggar (from Uttering Her Name)

by Gabriel Rosenstock


Original Language Irish & English

Dar Óma
I was a beggar
You threw me a smile

I ran off
delirious
into the distance

later, tired
hungry
I sat down

now people toss me coins

I throw them back at them

all I ever wanted
was Your smile
