Cool Wind and Moon Bright__Kong Shiu Loon

Bright Moon and Buddha

My mother told me when I was nine
Life is fair and fine within Buddha’s sight
You must be diligent and you must try
You are your own Buddha in life

The moon is the Buddha I learned at night
She always shines to keep the dark world bright
To give those who seek wisdom and peace of mind
A renewing respite after continuing strive

Quietly she guides
To give all followers directions and delight
She is always right
Because in you she resides

My mother is now gone
But the wisdom she had left behind
Is forever in me shone my guide
She is my Buddha and moon lifelong
