not going to slow down now
just want to have your long hair in the air!

Your existence
2015/10/07

《妳的存在》Your existence

你知道吗,妳的存在
把我人生如一幅画
彩上了最美丽的风景

妳的眼睛
总是用神秘的方式
像星星那样和我说话

妳的微笑
把我拥入了阳光的怀里
一起跳跃在快乐的音符上

妳的喜怒哀乐
在我人生的四季里
让大地覆盖着天空里神殿肃穆的颜色

亲爱的,妳的存在
像是一支神奇的笔
书写着我生命里的惊喜

Do you know, your existence
paint my journey of Life
into a beautiful scenery

your eyes
whisper to me in a mysterious way
like the twinkling of stars

your smiles
cuddle me into sunshine
together we dance in musics of happiness

your emotions
are seasons of my life
blanketing the world with unspoken solemn colors of temples of heaven

my dear, your existence
is just like a magical pen
writing wonders of my life

*****
It has been exactly 11 months today that I have never posted anything on my blog. Working as a researcher has consumed me a lot of my mind and energy. Most importantly, I am always having doubts now on what science can bring to people their happiness. May be is just like our earnings, it does not necessary mean more or more efficient in earnings equal to our happiness in life. Therefore I quit my job about a month ago, and may be will look for my other passions to make a living which eventually brings me happiness, and the serenity.

《父与子》Father and son

我沿着爱的轮廓
窜起我记忆里你的脸庞
在这即将来临的永恒的离别
可是你也用同样的眼神看着我,说
儿子呀,我知道你也和我一样

从前与你的离别总燃起重逢的希望
O 不是这一次,也不会有下一次
所以我总带着希望你也能记住的微笑
可是你也这样的对着我微笑,说
儿子呀,我知道你也和我一样

你问我,想不想留下来,或许
多一分钟、多一天、多一年
我说,想,真的很想,就像海洋能永远拥抱着河流
你不想我离开,我说
儿子呀,你知道的我也和你一样

I follow the contour of love
to connect the memory of your face
for this coming parting forever
but you look at me in the same way, and say
hey son, I know we have the same feeling too

A goodbye used to be an arising hope
for our next meeting, O no, not this time, and not anymore
So I always smile to you and wish you to remember
but you smile to me in the same way, and say
hey son, I know we have the same feeling too

You ask me if I want to stay a little bit longer, may be
a minute more, a day more, or a year more
I reply, I do, I really do, to be like the ocean forever embracing the river
you do not wish for me to leave, and I say
hey son, you know we have the same feeling too

Stories of you
2014/11/05

《那些关于你的故事》Stories of you

我很常写关于你的事
故事里没有泪水
却带着我一丝丝的悲伤
没有声音
却让我想起我们天真的欢笑
没有颜色
却像是一幅由许多连在一起的幸福片段的画
没有你的名字
却全都是和你一起生活的回忆

/送给那些和我曾经一起走过一段人生路程我挚爱的人

I often write about you
those stories without tear
but carry a little bit of my sadness
without sound
but remind me of our innocent laughter
without color
but like a painting that linked many events of happiness
without your name
but contain all the memory of  you

/Dedicated to my family and friends and those who I have loved and who have walked beside me for a part of journey of my life.

Rainy days

《雨天》Rainy days

世界在下着雨
有时从云那里来
有时却从心那里来

如果从云那里来
我会坐在天边
给太阳一个微笑

如果从心那里来
我会扮成了太阳
给自己一个微笑

The world is raining
sometimes it comes from the clouds
but sometimes it comes from my heart

if it comes from the clouds
I will sit on the edge of sky
to give the sun a smile

if it comes from my heart
I will pretend to be the sun
to give my heart a smile

The beauty of the world

A little secret

《一个秘密》A little secret

我问花儿
为什么爱
没有细胞
却能生长
没有血液
却能存活
没有神经
却能感受
不在天堂
却很幸福

花儿说,这
是我和世界
一个小小的秘密

I ask the Flower
why love
can grow
without a cell
can live
without the blood
can sense
without a nerve
is feeling blessed
without being in Heaven

The Flower replies, this
is my little secret
with the World

《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.

《春天的果实》Fruits of Spring

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

Spring, is the seed of Flowers
and Flowers, are fruits of 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

雨下了又停了

世界叹了一声

你还在等待谁
世界说
是你,我亲爱的花儿

The butterflies have flied past me
am I not pretty enough?
The bees have flied past me
am I not sweet enough?
clouds have come and gone
rains have dropped and stopped
and I have fallen
the World sighs
I ask the World
who are you still waiting for?
The World replies
is you, my dear flower

standing against the ferocious storm of fate
like the little grass waiting for the rain and dewdrops
the flower waiting for the sun
and you are waiting for the love
but my dear, for the smile that you have never given up
even the World
is waiting for your happiness

《期盼》An expectation

My thought
has been away for a while
I do not know
where is she now
through the wooden window
I stare at the path leading to home
shadows of the trees
have stretched out to cuddle each other
the tender breeze touches my chins
comforting me by bringing the smell of dust
from a foreign land
I am wondering about
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 special moment she has encountered
when the first star
begins to twinkle in the sky
my heart is again filled with hope
for the little surprise
of life

我的思想
已离开了我好一阵子
我不知道
她走到了哪里了
凝望着木窗外
那回家的路上
路边的树已拉长着的树影
拥抱着彼此
微风吹拂在了我的双颊上
挟带着一种安慰
来自那远方的尘土的味道
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
她的旅程里一些有趣的小故事
当天边的一颗星星
已开始闪烁了
我又满怀期盼
这生命里的
又一个惊喜

A hug from time

《来自时间的拥抱》A hug from time

今天忧伤
爬上了我的心头
她坐在那里眺望
看的不是远处
也不是近处
想的不是将来
也不是现在
她想要问
世界一个问题
但她知道
不会得到答复
我静静地走到她的身边
给了她
一个拥抱
没说什么的
我用时间
拭去了她脸上
流下的泪水

Today Sadness
has climbed onto my heart
she  was sitting down there and staring afar
to see neither faraway
nor anywhere close by
to think neither the future
nor anything present
she wanted to ask
the World a question
but she knew
she would not get an answer
I went to her
to gave her a hug
and without saying a word
I use the time
to wipe off tear drops
falling down her face

《新叶》The New Leaves

是春天里的太阳
让花儿娇艳?
还是春天里的花儿
让太阳娇艳?
只有那春风里的新叶

Does the sun in spring
embellish the flower?
Or flower in spring
embellish the sun?
Only the new leaves in the spring breeze
are still shyly hiding in their own silence

《看不见的》Out of Sight
2013/06/04

我会微笑的
纵使盛开的花儿早已凋谢
我会追逐的
纵使美丽的蝴蝶早已不见了踪影
我会歌唱的
纵使太阳在深冬里早已失去了她原来的魅力
但我还是会跳着舞的
只为我那藏在心里的你看不见的爱

I will smile
even if the bloom has long withered
I will chase
even if the beautiful butterfly has long disappeared
I will sing
even if the sun has long lost her charm to the deep winter cold
but I will still dance
just for the love in my heart that you cannot see
