Poem for SICHUAN

prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /My heart cries out for you, Sichuan

For you who lost your beloved child…

For you who lost your parent…

For you who lost your loved one…

For you who lost your hero…

For you who lost your earthly treasure…

 

If only I could be there for you…

If only I could embrace you right now…

 

BUT…

 

Would my presence bring smile to your sad face?

Would my money make you forget all that had happened?

 

NO…

 

Nothing can bring back what you’ve lost…

Nothing can erase what you have witnessed…

 

WHY…

 

Why would God allow this turmoil fall upon you?

Why would God allow this destruction come upon you?

 

NOW…

 

My eyes started to see…

My mind started to comprehend…

 

Your turmoil had awakened CHINA from her sleep…

Your destruction had called CHINA to unite, to love and to nourish

 

You had made CHINA stood up and shout WO MEN CUNG GUO REN!!!

 

You had proofed to the world that CHINA is a strong nation

 

3 minutes… I bow my head and pray for you

3 minutes… I lift up my head and believe God’s mighty power restores you

 

Sichuan… Before, you were the city that I never heard

Sichuan… Now, you will be the city that I will never forget
