An Elegy for my Master
Ah, you have departed from this world so soon
but then, we accept this was your writ destiny
May the Lord brighten your grave like a shimmering moon
And let there be no pain nor slightest agony.
You were nearer to many with your good behavior
You stood high in reverence with your generosity
To some you were like a brother and savior
You were far better than those who boasted in religiosity.
In truth, the Almighty Lord knows well your virtues
We remember you although your presence is no more
Let the Lord, at the helm, resolve your issues
and steer your vessels of diverse affairs to the ashore.
What if untimely malady has grasped your breath
What if your worldly stay was numbered brief
Little is this life with destined ordeals and death
Better is the Hereafter life--and that's our belief.
