MY TREASURED FRIEND
Philip Claude Andermann
My cherished friend,
of priceless worth,
I wonder at the waves
rippling the mirror of memory.
One wonders at the buried treasures
at the bottom of the ocean,
at all the water of different memories
that separate us.
But we are somehow all still connected.
A friend can somehow no more be separated from one's heart
than can a part of one's body.
Oceans cannot divide the world;
they are conecting paths.
The ocean heart pounds.
In fact, somehow we are all in the same boat
voyaging life with sails fed by the same breath of hope,
because inside we are all equally human.
On opposite sides of the land,
electrons could unite us in an instant
fast as imagination,
air resistance could soar planes so high to meet...
and the breezes of music
can thread and unite
the jewels of all hearts.
There are so many memories
like vast mysteries of the universe,
connnected by Gohonzon.
THIS IS NOTHING
COMPARED TO THE TREASURES WE SHALL
FOR THE INFINITE FUTURE!!!!
