Written On Our Death

Weep no more! dear ones
for the grave is stronger than our earth
cause i see your tears falling
for the sake of a departed friend
whose spirit had journeyed far away
to that city of ghost

Surely it pains
like heart that drinks an hemlock
when our beloved one sleeps and never return
Today we say we see him,
and tomorrow, we him no more

But, who shall we blame for our silent deaths?
And who shall we adjudge guilty
for all our sudden depatures?
Our sacrifices and prayers conquer every seconds
and yet, we never see the sight of death
that causes us sorrow and agony

I see a good man goes beyond untimely
leaving a trait of flawless name
and i hear the music of nightighale
sounding so low at the tomb of evil old man
But on our land of graves,
our death is coming by and by to take us away

Now, let us live like an humble dove
who see nothing in life
but think only of its imminent death
let us all be kind and be faithful
and let LOVE be our guild in our relationship
with our fellow human being
because very soon, death shall surely
knock at our door
and we will have no more homes but graves.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
