This is beautiful!  I can't think of a more perfect piece of prose to memorize.  Good one to recite when blessing a friend or loved one with protection.

I've always liked this too. It is very beautiful. Your version is a variation of the pagan core of the poem called the Lorica of St Patrick:
and it's wonderful how you can see the incorporation of the old religion into the new, nestled right into the heart of it. I think it's a big part of the particular nature of celtic mysticism, with its nature base, whether it's pre-christian or christian era. You can't take that natural love and awe out of a celt.

Eternal Rose

The hand
Gripping tight
speaks volumes
Oh how but I should not leave
Ohh but I cannot stay
I shall return
soon, so soon
I will be here
Have no regrets
no sorrow for me
For I shall be here
