Life has left her footprints on my forehead

But I have become a child again this morning

The smile, seen through leaves and flowers, is back, to smooth

Away the wrinkles

As the rains wipe away footprints on the beach. Again a

Cycle of birth and death begins.

- Thich Nhat Hanh, Viet Nam Poems, 1967

Con yêu Bà Ngo?i -- keep being my lotus flower.

Little lotus flower,

Return to me each year.

Little lotus flower,

Flourish in a pool of tears.

 

Little lotus flower,

Always nourish your people.

Little lotus flower,

Continue when you are feeble.

 

Little lotus flower,

Brave the hot and cold.

Little lotus flower,

The stories your life has told.

 

Little lotus flower,

Glimpse your reflection in the stream.

Little lotus flower,

Things aren't always what they seem.

 

Little lotus flower,

Keep being their sign of hope.

Little lotus flower,

Forever you'll stay afloat.

 

Little lotus flower,

Retain your color, despite the hurtful words they may say.

Little lotus flower,

You're in my heart to stay.
