"I shall not leave too long a trace
In people's painless memory...
This ghost of life is hollow, false
And vague. What good is it for me?
So I exist within myself,
And if not-does i matter so
If someone still remembers you
Or has forgotten long ago?
A brief day or a century
In the same manner come and go...
There is no life in other's memory
It, like oblivion, is a shadow.
But here on this earth while my flesh
Can still alive and breathing be,
I have but one concern and care
That God will never forget me."
