I want to shout from my rooftop:
“Halleluiah, praise the Lord!”
because I can still dance in the storm,
despite all the stings and arrows of misfortune.
.
I know that it would not be long
before I have to say goodbye,
but I will depart without regret
for being part of this exciting life.
.
Yes, the world is full of suffering,
yet, it is also full of wonderful moments–
I can’t count them one by one,
but each one can imbue my life with joy.
.
Children playing in the park,
lovers walking and holding hands,
the air is filled with the scent of Spring,
what a heavenly scene for an old man!
.
I imagine a better world
where people can live in peace.
That’s why I use my every breath
to tell others: I’ve found the Way.
.
Yes, I have fought a good fight,
now, I’m ready to meet my Lord and Savior.
