I may appear in front of you
But, for sure you won’t look at me, for you can’t see me.
I can sing my heart right into your ear.
Yet, you won’t listen to me, for you can’t hear me.
I may be resting against your throbbing heart.
Yet, you won’t feel me even there, for you don’t think about me.
It is me!
Just in front of you but you can’t see me, yet you can try to look at me!
It is me!
Just whispering into your ear but you can’t hear me, yet you can try to listen to me!
It is me!
Just next to your heart but you don’t think about me, yet you can try to feel me!
Japan, the developed country of the RISING SUN, once devastatingly rocked during the WORLD WAR II by nuclear explosions, is now once again on the brink of the horrible sufferings posed by radioactive leakage following the earthquake and the tsunami last month. What a callous ordeal set by nature!
So many hopes may have been shattered. So many parents may have lost their pieces of heart. So many children may have been deprived of parental love. So many people may have been homeless in their own hometown. Ah! How painful it is, isn’t it?
Despite such blows of natural calamities, Japanese seem and sound not to have lost heart, but to have been bolder and more composed than ever before which I have felt on reading a piece of news about a Japanese woman holding her dead child in her arms and consoling others and encouraging them not to give up hopes for better safety. Wow! How calm and composed she was, wasn’t she?
Let’s pray to the Almighty for the eternal peace of the departed souls, and Pleasure, Peace and Prosperity of all the Japanese in the days to come!
In the same regard, as my personal tributes, I have already come up with some poetic creations in a sequence that I will soon publish part-wise under the main title:
“The Japan I Feel These Days!”
