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.

图片小故事
我常常对人类某些想法感到很困惑。我们为什么要孩子来到世上然后又告诉他们世界就是这么的残酷。我想,残酷的不是世界,是我们自己。不是吗?我相信如果我们愿意给世界一点一滴的爱,爱会汇聚成一条河流,让她流经的世界会更加的美丽。这也是你的梦想吗?

THE LITTLE STORY ABOUT THE PHOTO
I am often very confused with some human behaviors and thoughts. Why would we want to bring our children to this World and ask them to face the cruel reality of the World later on? For me it is not the World that is cruel, it is ourselves. Isn’t it? I believe if every of us is willing to give a little drop of love for this World, love will flow like a river and to make the World more beautiful wherever the river goes. Aren’t you sharing the same vision with me?

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 Cat and the Leader
2014/10/16

My friend asked me, what lessons can a cat teach us in order to become a good leader? Allow me to tell the story from one of my mistakes. My younger sister brought a cat to our family sometime ago, and I tried to discipline the cat like a dog. As you can imagine, I failed squarely. This is not a lesson only about knowing the differences between cats and dogs, but to remind me although dogs’ obedient make us feel superior, nonetheless the pride and ego of the cat can thwart this sense of superiority. Ever since that I do not harass the cat to listen to me, she has been getting friendly with me, and occasionally trying to play with me. This opens my mind about the qualities of being a good leader is to accept and tolerate the diversity in characters, behaviors, and ideas of people, and furthermore to guide them in an appropriate way so that we reach farther and higher goals (in life) together. Do you agree? One more thing, dogs and cats can easily forgive people’s mistake and to love them again, so why can’t us human do the same?

//This discussion is related to the post https://riveroftheheartblog.wordpress.com/2014/10/08/senseless-quote-of-the-furry-world-photo-series-6/
//To tolerate and to forgive are not easy things to do, and I believe most of the people and including I feel the same. However, we should not resist to have incremental improvement for ourselves each and everyday in the hope that when we look back at the distance we have covered, it would be an important journey in life.

我的朋友问我猫和当领导有什么关系?这事要从我的错误说起。我妹妹养了一只猫,但是我却把牠当狗来教导。可想而知,我碰了一鼻子灰。这事不仅仅是告诉我猫和狗个性上的区别,更是告诉我纵然狗因为他的顺从而让我们觉得自己处在的优势,但是猫的高傲却彻底的践踏了我的这种心态。现在很多时候我都不去打扰那只猫,反而她和我更亲近了,也会主动靠近我和和我嬉戏。所以作为一个真正的领导人,心胸要比其他人更大更广,去包容和接纳不同人的个性、习惯和见解,并循循善诱的去引导其他人和自己走向更高远的(人生)目标。你同意吗?哦还有一点,狗和猫是那么容易的原谅了人的过错和从新去爱人,如果动物可以这样,何况我们人类呢?

The beauty of the world

A little secret
2014/05/14

《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
2013/12/03

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

是我不够美吗?

雨下了又停了

世界叹了一声
我问世界
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

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,

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.
