《生命在这一刻》Life at this moment

2013/12/03 - 10 Responses

我的生命,
曾否有一刻,
为你而活?
让我歌唱吧,
这一刻,
我为你而活!

我的生命,
曾否有一刻,
为你而开心?
让我歌唱吧,
这一刻,
我为你而开心!

我的生命,
曾否有一刻,
为你而落泪?
让我歌唱吧,
这一刻,
我为你而落泪。

我的生命,和你的生命,
曾否有一刻,
相拥一起,
让我们歌唱吧,
就记住这一刻,
明天当星星道别了太阳,
我将道别了你。

Has my life,
at one moment,
to live for you?
O let me sing a song,
at this moment,
I live for you.

Has my life,
at one moment,
to be happy for you?
O let me sing a song,
at this moment,
I am happy for you.

Has my life,
at one moment,
to cry for you?
O let me sing a song,
at this moment,
I cry for you.

Has my life, and your life,
at one moment,
to embrace each other?
O let us sing a song,
just to remember this moment,
for tomorrow when the stars say farewell to the Sun,
I will say farewell to you.

献给在我生命中一起走过的人
dedicated to all people who have walked with me in my life

//We think we do not have to live for others, but think again, so many have lived for us, at some moments in our lives.
//我们以为自己不为谁而活,想一想,我们生命里的许多人,也都曾在我们生命的某个阶段,不经意的为我们而活。

// The meaning of the last verse is about in darkness we light up hopes for each other, and the Sun signifies the end of the darkness, and thus the beginning of our new lives.

//There were two main ‘enzymes’ that led me to writing of these verses, my recent conversation with my secondary school friend Shirley about her struggling in the growing of her heart and soul (and mine too), and a canon pixma advertisement that led me to discover a beautiful song ‘Your Firefly’ by Ben Cocks. I completed these verses while listening to this song, because I wanted to write something beautiful like this song too.

// You are more than welcome to point out my grammatical errors since I am not sure if it is correct.

《春天的果实》Fruits of the Spring

2013/11/29 - 10 Responses

春天,是花的种子,
花,是春天的果实。
如果我像大地,
也躺在了这春天里,
春天她会不会,
也带给我爱的种子?
那我也将长成一朵花,
那我也将是她的爱的果实。

The Spring, is the seed of Flowers,
and Flowers, are fruits of the Spring.
If I lie down and pretend to be the earth,
would the Spring,
brings me the seed of love?
So that I will become a Flower,
So that I will be the fruit of her Love.

《无题》Untitled

2013/11/28 - 2 Responses

蝴蝶飞过了,
是我不够美吗?
蜜蜂飞过了,
是我不够甜吗?
云来了,雨下了,
我凋落了,
世界叹了一声,
我问世界,
我不美吗?
世界说,妳很美。
我问世界,
我不甜吗?
世界说,妳很甜。
那我的美,我的甜,
是为谁?
世界说,我, 一朵等待妳的花儿。

The Butterflies have passed by me,
am I not pretty enough?
The Bees have passed by me,
am I not sweet enough?
The clouds come, the rains drop,
and I have fallen,
the World sighs,
I ask the World,
am I not pretty?
The World Says, you are pretty.
I ask the World,
am I not sweet,
The World says, you are sweet,
Then my beauty, and my sweetness,
for whom do they live for?
The World replies, for me, the flower who is waiting.

//The reader should realize that the whole scenario has changed in the end, that the World has become the flower, and the flower has become the bees or the butterflies.
//大意是说我们以为自己等待着别人,别人错过了我们,但是别人也在等待着我们,我们也错过了别人。

《恐惧》Fear

2013/11/27 - 2 Responses

是谁,
在降临的黑夜的脚步后面,
在一秒又一秒中步步逼近,
吞没在他身后我的视线,
淹没他前进里的周遭的宁静,
夺取我身上一寸又一寸的体温,
直到我的心像要从自己的躯体挣脱出来,
飞向那黑暗的最深处,
然后,坠落。

Who is that,
behind the footstep of fallen darkness,
coming closer with each second passes,
taking away my vision beyond him,
drowning the silence around him,
chipping away my body temperature inch by inch,
until my heart is being pulled out from my body,
accelerating towards the deepest of the darkness,
and, falling.

祈泉

//这只是描写我们对恐惧的一种感觉和心态,看不到了、听不到了、感觉不到了(冷漠了),最后连我们自己都要把自己的心脏掏了出来,把她丢进看不见的深渊。

妈妈,
死亡来了,
我送你到这里,
请妳把妳的眼睛当成一部相机,
拍下最一个影像,
我向妳道别的微笑。

Mom,
Death is coming,
this is the last checkpoint I can be with you,
but please imagine your eye as the camera,
to capture the last image,
the smile when I say goodbye.

《全部》Everything

我想的,
是妳思考的延续吗?

我说的,
是妳想告诉世人的吗?

我写的,
是妳的要分享的吗?

我梦想的,
是妳翅膀的一部分吗?

告诉我,
世界。

只有我对妳的爱,
是我能给妳的全部。

What I have been thinking,
is it part of your thought?

What I have been saying,
is it what you want to tell?

What I have been writing,
is it what you want to share?

What I have been dreaming,
is it part of your wing?

Tell me,
the World.

Only my Love to you,
is everything I have for you.

《陪着你》To be with you

如果你是沙漠里的一颗沙尘,
我就是那个让你站在我肩上的沙子,
如果你是海洋里的一颗水滴,
我就是那颗陪你一起遨游的小水滴,
如果你是银河里的一颗星星,
我就是那颗从另一个银河望着你的星星,
请告诉我你想成为什么,
我会永远的在你的身边陪着你。

if you are a grain of sand in the dessert,
I will be the grain of sand hanging below you,
if you are a drop of water in the ocean,
I will be the drop of water swimming besides you,
if you are one of the stars in the galaxy,
I will be the star watching you, from another galaxy,
tell me please what do you want to become,
and I will always be there to care for you.

《天堂与天使》The heaven, and the angels

2013/11/21 - 11 Responses

当有人问,
我来自哪里,
我总会说,
我来自天堂的岛屿,
但是,没有人告诉过我,
来自天堂的,
就是天使,
如果你愿意相信,
我是天使,
那么我站的地方,
就是天堂,
O 亲爱的,
你不要怀疑,
你也是天使。

When someone asks,
where do I come from,
I often reply,
island of heaven,
but no one ever tell me,
if I come from the heaven,
I must be an angel,
if you choose to believe,
I am the angel,
then where I stand,
must be the heaven,
O dear, do not doubt,
you are an angel too.

《幸福的追求》The chase of the Bliss

2013/11/20 - 5 Responses

有人说,
财富是幸福,
也有人说,
幸福是财富,
我问幸福,
我是妳的什么?
幸福说,
你是我梦里的云。

Some say,
Wealth is the Bliss,
some say,
Bliss is the Wealth,
I ask the Bliss,
who am I to you?
The Bliss says,
you are the Cloud in my dream.

//Cloud, in some Chinese idioms, refer to something that we cannot hold on, like wealth. Here I wish to say even we are like the cloud to the Bliss, that she cannot sit on and travel together, or stay under our shadow, and to accompany us forever. The word ‘dream’ here is to intensify the representative meaning of ‘cloud’.

《害怕》The fear

我问爱,
妳怕刀吗?
她说,不怕。
我问她,
妳怕火吗?
她说,不怕。
我又问,
妳怕什么?
她说,怕我的心,
没有装下她。

I ask Love,
do you afraid of knife?
She says, no.
I ask her,
do you afraid of fire?
She says, no.
I ask further,
what do you afraid of?
she says, afraid of your heart,
not to contain me.

《如果我是蓝蓝的海》If I am the blue blue sea

2013/11/15 - 5 Responses

如果我,
是蓝蓝的海,
那蓝蓝的天空,
就是我的心,
我的喜怒哀乐,
是天气,
我的希望,
在星星里,
我的呼唤,
是午后温柔的凉风,
而你知道吗,
夜里那挂在夜空的月亮?
那是我打开的心扉,
等待着妳。

If I am,
the blue blue sea,
then the blue blue sky,
is my heart,
my happiness and sorrow,
is the weather,
my hopes,
are with the stars,
my calling,
is the tender wind of the afternoon,
and do you know, the moon that hang in the night sky?
That is the door of my heart I opened,
for you who I am waiting.

我的心,
是等待蜕变的毛虫,
不在梦想里,
向往花儿的天空,

the sky of the flowers,
but to grow into,
the flower of the sky.

像小花等待着阳光,
你等待着爱,
可是亲爱的,你坚持的微笑,
却让世界,也等待着你的幸福。

like the little flower waiting for the Sun,
you are waiting for the love,
but my dear, to the smile you have never given up,
even the World, is waiting for your happiness.

《期待》Expecting

2013/10/30 - 2 Responses

my thought,
has gone away for a while,
I do not know,
where is she now,
through the wooden window,
I can see the path leading home,
at the sides the shadow of the trees,
has stretched,
to cuddle each other on the earth,
the tender breeze touches my chins,
brings a smell of dust,
from a foreign land,
I am thinking,
the places,
that my thought has travelled,
would she buy me,
a souvenir,
for every place she has visited,
and would she tell me,
the little stories,
for every experience she has encountered,
when the first star,
has started to shine,
my heart is awaiting
for the little surprise of life.

我的思考,
走了好一阵子,
我不知道,
她走到了哪里,
望着木窗外,
那回家的路,
路边的树,
已拉长着树影抱着彼此,
微风吹拂在了我的双颊上,
挟带着,
远方的尘土的味道,
我在想,
我的思考她,
走过了什么地方,
她会不会在每一个地方,
都给我买一些特别的手信,
她回来后,
会不会给我讲一些,
她经历过的旅程里的小故事,
天边的一颗星星,
已开始闪烁,
我的心期待着,
生命又一个惊喜。

// My apology, for my long disappearance. My work is coming to an end in a few months time, and I have to look for a new job. My mind was so occupied with my work mostly, although I have also put so much time and energy into my family and friends, And left a little to myself. Paradoxically, this writing is what I get out from my devotion to people I love, and things I like to do. Probably life gives us surprises when we least expected. I do love the people that are reading my blog, and that’s why I will only give you my best.

I will reply to the comments that have left unanswered in the last few months.

Defining richness of my life

2013/08/27 - 10 Responses

20130827-130648.jpg

I am rich because of one of these reasons:
1. I am healthy,
2. I have a positive mind,
3. I have my family, and friends,
4. I am able to help, or bring happiness to people around me,
5. I look for wisdoms in life.

and then this life, I will be always rich.
I know, you will see me childish,
I know, you will see me naive,
but you know, I will see my life, a miracle.

What’s yours?

《梦》A Dream

2013/07/31 - 4 Responses

大自然用时间轻轻的吹,
那困锁在人类千年城堡,
和她的记忆的沙,
就回到了母亲的怀抱。
沙儿对母亲说,
我做了一个梦。

Using the time the Nature tenderly blows,
onto a thousand year castle, unleashing the Sand,
from the cell and her memory of human history,
and returning her to the bosom of Mother,
she then waken to say,
O mom, I had a dream.

Donah has a very nice blog about beauty and blogging. I saw how her website has transformed in recent year to become the look of a professional website. There are a lot things and experiences we can learn from her. A few weeks ago, Donah asked me to write a guest post about my photography for her , so I gladly agreed and it was published on her website a few days ago. Only now do I have the time to introduce the post here in my blog.

Thank you once again Donah, for a wonderful friendship. Thanks to all the bloggers who have visited my simple and humble blog. The little happiness from you are the candles of my nights in the journey of life, they are brighter than the stars.

Here is the link of the guest post.
