Porto

《波尔图》 Porto

美丽的波尔图
是妳的足迹
留在了我的心里
的一条小路上
我好几次用了妳的名字
在梦里呼唤着她

My beautiful Porto
you left your footprints
in a street of my heart
and I have called her
your name
many times in my dreams

The staircase to heaven
2016/07/22

 

《到天堂的阶梯》The staircase to heaven

有一天我发现了一个阶梯
从我的心连接到了天堂
天堂那里传来一个声音
告诉了我这些
你每一次对世界的一个微笑
可以更接近我一个梯级
你每一次对世界的善举
可以更接近我一万个梯级
你每一次给世界的关怀与爱
可以更接近我一百万个梯级
我向天堂的声音问道
可是我不知道你离我有多远
我需要多久才能到达你那里
天堂的声音回答我说
当你不需要再数
离我还有多少个梯级的时候
那个阶梯就会自然的消失
到时候你只是一步之遥
离打开在你心里一直等待着你的那一扇门

I discovered one day
a staircase connecting my heart to Heaven
and from Heaven I heard a voice
telling me about these
every time if you smile at the World
you will be one step closer to me
every time if you do a good deed for the World
you will be ten thousands steps closer to me
every time if you have given your care and love to the World
you will be a million steps closer to me
I asked the Voice
how long will I need to take to reach you
if I do not know the distance
the Voice replied
the time when you do not have to count
the steps you have covered to reach me
the staircase will then disappear
and you are just one step more
to open the door long waiting for you in your heart

Reborn
2016/07/19

《重生》 Reborn

连梦里的妳
都变的冷漠
冷漠的像黑暗的星云
紧紧的裹住了我
吸取我灵魂的热量
就在我以为
我的生命在消失中
在这黑暗里
那未知的引力
却让我在自己的灰烬里骤然重生

Even in the dream
your indifferent calmness
engulfing me tightly
like the cold dark nebula
draining the heat from my soul
and just when I thought
my life is fading away
but in this darkness
with an unknown gravity
I am reborn from my own ashes

The forgotten memories
2016/07/18

 

《遗忘了的回忆》The forgotten memories
那回忆的碎片
散落在了那以后
夜里的大地上
在我以为遗忘的时候
长成了梦的树林
在那些不知名的季节里
开花结果

Those fragmented memories
have fallen after that
to the earth of mysterious nights
and just when I thought I have forgotten about them
they have grown into the forest of dreams
blossom and bear fruits
in seasons of unknown names

A fairy tale

《童话》A fairy tale
我们的爱
住着世界的梦
她在等待
一个亲吻

Our love
lives the dream of the world
she is waiting
for a kiss

Found
2016/07/08

找到了Found
我向一颗划过夜空的流星
的祈愿实现了
当我发现流星掉落了在你的心上

I made a wish to a shooting star
that came true
when I found that it has landed in your heart

A reminiscence

《叙旧》A reminiscence
迟暮
思念从遥远的地平线升起
乘着微风来和我叙旧

At dusk
a nostalgic feeling rises on the horizon
to reminisce about our past in the breeze

《美好时光》A good time

不要慢下来
要妳的长发飘起来!

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

It’s funny
2016/07/04

《嘲笑》It’s funny

我画了世界的脸孔
却发现原来世界
长的和我一个模样
我对自己笑了
世界也对我笑了

I drew the face of the World
only to discover the World
and me were look alike
I laughed at myself
and the World laughed at me

I am revising my blog now since there are a lot of things that I have written need to be revised, and organized again. At the same time, I am creating an instagram for riveoftheheartblog. Currently my categories and tags section are in a mess due to my inexperience in these tags in the past. I have to slowly tidy up that too. The writings that are not good enough for myself will be removed. I will try to add some more new writings during the process of ‘upgrading’ my blog.

Thanks for being with me.

Love,

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
2014/10/24

《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

Chasing love

《追逐爱》Chasing love

在梦里我追逐着一个有爱的世界。这会是我张开眼睛后的真实的世界吗?
I DREAM I AM CHASING A WORLD WITH LOVE. COULD THIS BE REAL WHEN I HAVE MY EYES OPENED?
