A beautiful feeling we’ve ever got in our life
is only a tiny lovely sprinkling
Heaven has made us a gift.
If only we will open our heart
and learn to understand its meaning better
there certainly will be a great deal of gifts
Heaven promises us.
It’s a pity
we let ourselves sink into hatred of each other,
our children learn and play alone
without our loving guidance,
our fellow man lives in prolonged sorrow and poverty
and our earth is torn by our bombs and poisons.
If only we hadn’t done it all
we could hope for another sprinkling of gifts from Heaven
in our lives
our next days.
