Thief Of Life!TSUNAMI!!!

It came in silence this thief of life.

Feeding on its prey with pure delight.

No shouts or screams were able to rise.

As the waves swallow the will to fight.

Dreams taken before one's eyes.

In a flash a lifetime was turned to dust.

Tears fell as one watch hope dies.

In the rage of the predator’s lust.

Let your strength in this darkness rise.

Like the sun in every tomorrow you will rise.

And dreams will be rebuilt and hope will rise.

In this beautiful Land Of The Rising Sun!

(Tears still fill our eyes everyday.And the will to hope is hard to find.But in time JAPAN will rise. And dreams will again in our hearts reside.Deepest gratitude for all the prayers.I know everyone here in Japan is deeply touched by all the concern the people of the world is extending to us. )

(My deepest apology for my absence.)

June, your hope is inspiring in this poem and I have no doubt whatever that the people of Japan will rise as the sun again just as you say.

I am happy that you are with us.

I & my family daily pray for Japanese. We believe you & your nation will surely overcome this calamity. We know that Japanese are always strong in any situation and we always trust in that.

Please don't be so sad, June. It's long time to see you again and I'm really happy to know that you're still fine ! ^^

Best wishes
A friend you may forget :P

June San, all of Vietnamese here also care for Japanese after tragedy. And like you I wish I could do something more for Japanese.

Now what you can do is to take care of your health, you will be able to help other in tragedy if you're really healthy, right ? So please do it for you, for family and for other who may need your help.

The time will pass and happiness will come back. Very nice smiles will come back on all Japanese lips I believe! And I'll wait to read your next poems about the happiness in the air of rebuilding from the loss.

Gambatte kudasai!
