If a lifetime of wisdom could be summed up in a single word,
no mouth could utter it.
If a lifetime of love could be felt in one beat of one heart,
no flesh could contain it.
If a lifetime of joy could be expressed in one shout of one voice,
no ear could perceive it.
If a lifetime of hate could be emblazoned in one act of destruction,
no force could withstand it.
If a lifetime of suffering could be experienced in one spasm of pain,
no soul could endure it.
If a lifetime of regret could be grieved in one flash of insight,
no tear could erase it.
If a lifetime of experience could be extinguished in one final breath,
no one dare not share it!
