Before I Was Myself, You Made Me, Me
|Music: Fugue in F Minor.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|Before I was myself you made me, me
With love and patience, discipline and tears,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,
Allowing me to sail upon my sea,
With dreams enough of what I was to be
Relinquishing your powers gradually
And being good and wise, you gracefully
For love inspires learning naturally:
