What Do You Really Possess?

What do you really possess,
and what have you gained?
What pearls have you brought up
from the depth of the sea?

On the day of death,
bodily senses will vanish:
Do you have the spiritual light
to accompany your heart?

When dust fills these eyes in the grave,
will your grave shine bright?
