My mother has lived through Japanese regime,
Korean War, and the Great Depression
Still she keeps her smile and her peace in her mind
She has wrinkles and spots here and there
She is weak and falling now and then
She forgets things and loses things
She cannot produce anything tangible now
but still she gives spiritual fruits to all the people she meets!
What is more grandiose? I wonder!
All my fellow pilgrims, I pray,
to be great mountains and living rivers in their golden aging times!
