Ode to Life

Hear Me,
O People of this Earth,
May your gods protect you
From the evil that lurks
in darkness!
May your life shine bright,
bright as the sun,
in a midsummer's day!
May love be in your heart
for as long as the moon
travels the skies above!
May beauty be in your soul
and shine in the dark
just as the stars brighten
the night!
May your wisdom be vast,
as vast as the universe itself;
and may your dreams,
unreachable as they seem,
become real, as real
as you, oh people,
and as real, as I am,
I who dedicate this ode
to the most precious gift
the gods have given us:
