back, darling, and don’t linger;
Let the first moments stay in our sweet memory forever.
So golden and precious our blossoming love –
Unforgettable even from afar!
from the peak of affection, be not reluctant –
Just a touch of sorrow, let me retain!
To partake in the agony of separation and the joy of reunion,
Deepen my heart with yearning!
think about, ask for, or even deny
The lonely corners of our lives.
The world continues to turn, rainfall or sunshine,
Viewing life’s vicissitudes as but a game!
hundred years on this meaningless stage,
Face upturned, I laugh aloud in the midst of love.
Heaven and Earth revolve eternally, just let it be!
Night or dawn, it doesn’t really matter to me...
Master has recited
this poem in Aulacese. Her beautiful voice and the gracious
melody were recorded on the CDs "Traces of Previous Lives
II" and"Please Keep Forever".
