《拥抱生命》To hold life in my arms

《拥抱生命》To hold life in my arms

告诉我吧
每一段人生的欢喜悲伤
是不是都有一个音符?
那我期待着
在这旅程的终点
坐在舞台下的我倾听着
这生命之歌
那最后的音符
将会是只带着幸福的
我掉下的的眼泪
而那最后的掌声
将是只留给自己的
我的微笑

Tell me please
if every happiness
and sorrow in life has a musical note?
O how I wish
at the end of this journey
in the audience I would listen
this song of life
the closing note of the music
will be my falling tears
only with happiness
and the final clapping
will be my smile
only to myself

  1. I don’t know if each sorrow or happiness has its own note, but I do know music can bring much happiness and help overcome much sorrow.

    • Here I just want to express that, myself should see life as a whole picture rather than to stop playing at one particular note🙂. Just a reminder to me life is an unfinished painting before our final time.

      Thanks for your words🙂.

    • I always imagine that our soul is silence, and when we touch each other heart, may it be the words, or the musics, our soul hums. Your words too has touched my heart, and I think that is the real joy of life.

      Thank you too for many of your wonderful thoughts!

  3. This has just bought tears to my eyes, have been thinking a lot about music in life lately, the most beautifully worded poem I don’t have words to express how moving it is, your a shining star my friend, much love xo

    • I am really honor that my words have touched your heart. When I wrote this, I thought of the holding my mom in my arm during the days when she was unconscious, just like when I wrapped my arms around her when I was going out with her. I just imagine every things we do in life, at the very last moment of us, will sing for us, and sing for the people we love.

      Thank you.

  6. if every sorrow and happiness is represented by a note..let us pick them up, composed them into beautiful melody ever…and blend them into the joyous song ever sung…

  7. Hope you like my use of your poem in my latest post, happy new year my friend KC , much love, Melissa xo thanks for your inpiration……………http://oldworldcharmvintage.wordpress.com/2013/01/16/be-on-your-way/

  8. This was beautiful. I think that each experience does have its own note, sometimes an entire melody, and finally, at the end of life there is a grand finale. There have also been times I have music from a distance, and I’ve strongly felt the presence of a loved one who has been gone for many years but not forgotten.

    • I am sure you have more experiences than me in life🙂. I am surprised in fact, just recently that I saw some people that I thought would live a good life, have followed the wrong path in life by taking risk in making quick money. I have seen so many people are agitated by the temptation to be success, and to achieve the goal of life that are defined by other people. Many of us do not realize, it is important that at the end of our journey in life, we have to sing our own song.

      You are right, I do hear every now and then, the music from a distance. The recent depart of my parents, does teach me a lot of things in life, and most importantly, there are still many things in life that I have to learn in my remaining journey of life.

      I feel that I can’t write a good reply recently, because I still have the agitated mind, with my work, my family, and my friends. So please pardon me.

      KC
