remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
Remind me that my days are numbered—
how fleeting my life is.
You have made my life no longer
than the width of my hand.
My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
each of us is but a breath.”
where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you.
…For I am your guest—
a traveler passing through,
as my ancestors were before me.
