TRAGEDY IN BERKELEY, USA


 

YOUR CANDLE HAS GONE OUT

You had just arrived on this earth,
taken only the first steps of your journey,
told only the first words of your story.
Your life was still only a mountain brook.
You were like snow that has just fallen from heaven,
pure and clean and white.
You were a tender lily whose aroma
was still locked up in its petals.

But now the candle of your earthly life has gone out, leaving our world so dark
that it seems as if the sun itself
was eclipsed by your passing.
But we believe that you will shine on us from above,
from the Kingdom of Light,
a Kingdom of timelessness
where you will be forever young.
