Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it. Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield but to my own strength. Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom. Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone; but let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure. Fruit-gathering LXXIX (Rabindranath Tagore)
その後、ほんとに 「Über den Bergen」を呟きたくなるようなことも起こり（今度はドイツ語で…笑）、なかなか忙しい週末でございました。
Über den Bergen weit zu wandern Sagen die Leute, wohnt das Glück. Ach, und ich ging im Schwarme der andern, kam mit verweinten Augen zurück. Über den Bergen weit weit drüben, Sagen die Leute, wohnt das Glück. ― Carl Busse Über den Bergen
You who I cradled in my arms You, asking as little as you can Little snip of a little man I know I'd give my life for you
You didn't ask me to be born You, why should you learn of war or pain? To make sure you're not hurt again I swear I'd give my life for you
I've tasted love beyond all fear And you should know it's love that brought you here And in one perfect night when the stars burned like new, I knew what I must do
I'll give you a million things I'll never own I'll give you a world to conquer when you're grown You will be who you want to be You, can choose whatever heaven grants As long as you can have your chance I swear I'll give my life for you
Sometimes I wake up reaching for him I feel his shadow brush my head But there's just moonlight on my bed
Was he a ghost? Was he a lie? That made my body laugh and cry? Then by my side the proof I see his little one, gods of the sun, bring him to me!
You will be who you want to be You, can choose whatever heaven grants As long as you can have your chance I swear I'll give my life for you
No one can stop what I must do I swear I'll give my life for you!
新ティーンの彼は普通に学校で（明日で"Year 8"終了）、私は普通に仕事だったので、B-Day Dinner以外、何ら特別なことはしていないのですが、夜になっていきなり「Miss Saigon（ミス・サイゴン）」の「I'd give my life for you（命をあげよう）」が頭の中で回りだして止まらなくなりました。笑
