I dusted off the old antiques
Searching for a bit of love:
Love-lost over time;
Nothing lasts forever.

I tossed the pain out
From deep within my soul
And left it to the seas’ mercy.
Will it return as something beautiful?

Unconditional love is rare,
That’s why it’s so valuable,
Like something soft and warm,
Like ointment to dry skin.

Memories grow old like the Cypress;
Golden like the Cassia tree.
In my mind, they last forever.
Even when I’m old and forget who I am, where I am,
Maybe I’m just living in these dreams then.

We’re just like the animals:
We dig the fields for a day,
Trying to leave a residue of ourselves to the world.
But the rain quickly washes us away.

The sea returned my joy,
Like waves that come and go.
When I’m old and forget who I am, where I am,
Maybe I’m just living in these dreams then. . .
Someplace warm and golden.
