Actually, we have been carrying everything,
Both mentally and physically
in us all along.
Even the memory of our death,
the daily reminder
to our condition of life
we are always being reminded:
Especially in sickness,
in times you wish for distraction,
the body expresses itself most strongly.
It throbs, stumbles and trembles,
does not make it up to its usual power.
But especially in times like these
the spiritual supremacy of the body
shows its bright side:
Only it can keep calm,
that will open the path to recovery.
