Translator's blog

From the translator’s journal ~Flow of time~

The flow of time
heals me from suffering.
What a joy
to see my suffering in the past tense!

I feel grateful for the fact
that my suffering has become a past tense
thanks to the flow of time.

Growing old is also a flow of time.
Not so bad to get old,
as it increases the memories to remember.

When I will suffer again,
I would like to taste it
and recall it later
with some sweetnesses.

If I can make it through
in the flow of time,
it will be a true blessing.
Thank God!
