I think that one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard would make a perfect soundtrack to my funeral and likewise, to the beautiful sunset at Manila Bay: "At Sunset" from Richard Strauss' Four Last Songs. R.Strauss was also the composer of my favorite operas: Elektra, Salome and The Woman Without A Shadow.



"At Sunset"
From 'Four Last Songs'
Music by Richard Strauss

Through sorrow and joy
we have gone hand in hand;
from our wanderings, we will rest
in this quiet land.

Around us, the valleys bow,
the air is now darkening.
Only two larks soar upwards
dreamily into the haze.

Come close, and let them twitter,
soon it will be time for sleep -
so that we don't get lost
in this solitude.

O vast, tranquil peace,
so deep in the sunset!
How weary we are of wandering--
Is this perhaps... death?





========================================


Here is the place to be... Manila Bay, a favorite spot in the city for seeing the golden hour of sunset because of the pristine unobstructed view. No buildings, no cables, no traffic, no smog. Just a beautiful landscape.
