MEMORY THAT SINGS
In a moment of silence, I often remember you
———- You are my lost song’s tone,
I often go with you on my endless journey
On the midway, I found myself alone.
To live with you forever
Is it a daydream?
Tears are running down my cheeks
Being with multicolored cream.
You live on the petal of a blooming flower
I can often see;
Sometimes your song is in a buzzing voice
Of a flying bumblebee.
I often miss my ways
On the unforgettable shattered memory,
I usually lose sometimes
When I don’t find you in my regular activity.
I’ll fly with colored wings to catch the moon
From my landscaped garden,
Until I get you back
When I live in my dream heaven.
INTO MY HEART
You will live into my heart
And spread floral fragrance,
You are my only song
To sing in a moment of silence.
I’ll fly with you often
To catch the golden moon,
In my dreams, you are the only queen
And you are a beautiful sleeping boon.
We’ll tell the tale
And memorize speeches together,
In a quiet moment of a rainy day
Those songs are forever.
You are my only moon
That shimmers the golden smelt ray,
You are my only boat
On an ocean above the waterway.
You are my heartbeat
By which I live,
You are my source of inspiration;
You are my only belief.
