I am only I. 

“If everything is lost, thanks be to God

If I must see it go, watch it go

Watch it fade away, die

Thanks be to God that He is all I have

And if I have Him not, I have nothing at all

Nothing at all, only a farewell to the wind

Farewell to the grey sky

Goodbye, God be with you evening October sky. 

If all is lost, thanks be to God,

For He is He, and I, I am only I. 

– Julian, A Severe Mercy by S. Vanauken
