《生命在这一刻》Life at this moment

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

我们的生命
曾否有一刻
相拥在一起
让我们歌唱吧
就记住这一刻
因为明天当星星道别了太阳
我可能将道别了你

Is my life
for one moment
is meant to live for you?
O let me sing a song
for this moment
I live for you

Is my life
for one moment
is meant to be happy for you?
O let me sing a song
for this moment
I am happy for you

Is my life
for one moment
to cry for you?
O let me sing a song
for this moment
I cry for you

Is our life
for one moment
is meant to embrace each other?
O let us sing a song
to remember this moment
because tomorrow when the stars say farewell to the sun
I may be saying 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.

  1. Couldn’t agree more on your saying about:

    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.

    I really like the way you think, always with lots of wisdom ^_^

    It’s great knowing you because you see the world in such broader and farther perspective way. Love to learn from you.

    Cheers^_^

    • 今天以后,再也不敢强调只为自己而活了。我终于开始了解自己有那么多缺点,身边那么多人爱我,包容我,为我付出那么多。我岂能那么自私,没为他们着想。内疚呀^_^(苦笑当中)

      我看到自己的自大、骄傲、prejudice 、ego,自我中心等了…多残酷的事实^_^

      我现在也开始了解为什么要宁静致远了…

      ^_^ 反省 反省 反省 ^_^

      后知后觉好过不知不觉^_^

      • huh?那么厉害,一下下就顿悟了。我这里写的是珍惜每一刻吧,道别有时来的比我们想像的早。是的,但我们真心为他人付出时,我们才能体会人生。

        宁静是要刻苦的磨练的,一步一脚印,千里之行始于足下。

        祈泉

      • 厉害个头啊…
        路才开始呢…
        真的是多山要爬…(吐舌头)

      • 我以为妳已修成正果了,我还必须留在地球。呵呵,欢迎回到地球。

        祈泉

      • 我的感言源自于发觉自己take的,多过give的。这几天发生好几件事,跟不同的人,所以很有感触。

      • 你还真没放过任何酸我的机会^_^(冷笑)。
        呃,我拿一本账簿寄起来…Y(^_^)Y

  2. Merry Christmas, my friend!!
