LyricsEdit

A child, a child of my heart though never of my name
Who shares my Gift, whose eyes though young are mine the very same
Who shares my every thought whose skillful hands I taught so well
Now hear the hardest lesson I shall ever have to tell


Young healer I have taught you all I know of wounds and pain
Of illnesses and of the herbs of blessing and of bane
Of all the usage of your gift all that I could impart
And how you learned young healer put rejoicing to my heart


But there is yet one lessoning I cannot give to you
For you must find your own way there judge what is sound and true
This lesson is the cruelest ever healer had to teach
It is which you must do when there are those you cannot reach


However great your gift there will be times when you will fail
There will be those you cannot help, your skill cannot prevail
When you fight Death and loose to him or what may yet be worse
You win to find the wreak he left regards you with a curse


Worst of all and harder still the times when its a friend
Who looks to you to bring him peace and make his torment end
What will you do young healer when there's nothing you can do
I can give only counsel for the rest is up to you


This only will I counsel you that if you build a shell
Of armor close about you then you close yourself in Hell
And if your heart should harden then your gift will fade and die
And all that you have lived and learned will then become a lie


As you must, I have faced the fear, the pain in dying eyes
Sometimes I have told the truth and sometimes gentle lies
As you will, I have faced the times my skill brings no redress
And wondered if my gift was truly meant to curse or bless


My child your healing hands are guided by your healing heart
And that is all the wisdom all my learning can impart
You take this pain upon you as you challenge life unknown
And there can be no answer here but one, and that's your own.
