Gift From Little Sister : In Loving Memoriam

Several days ago, my dear friend requested me something that I didn't even think to refuse - she asked me to post her older brother's artworks. Her brother passed away several days before, and she wanted to appreciate her brother's works. And indeed for sentimental reason, she wants to keep him alive in her (and our) hearts.

In Loving Memoriam of Dendy, by Vivi Oktora.

"One of his fave piece that he wished for his funeral."
Some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle.
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...
If life seems jolly rotten, there's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps, don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...
For life is quite absurd, and death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.
So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath
Life's a piece of shit, when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show, keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the bright side of life...

. . .

Moreover, life will be ended with death. And there's no regret to be alive once, since he had been loved by his families and friends - and will always be loved. I never known him in person, but I believe he's resting in peace up there.
Notes : All the artworks are the courtesy of Dendy's family. There's no relationship between texts and artworks, I put it randomly.
