Perhaps you won't find me
When this chandelier shatters my world, falling apart --
There's no need for us to be separated
Even in your heart's absence.
Perhaps I need not to be loved
When I've become such a person so senselessly infatuated --
Never will I be in grief again for the rest of my life
If it's all a dream.
** Live on, no matter what hardship ahead --
Be it heartbreak to bear --
I pray, once again.
I promise myself to bid insomnia farewell;
To rest, no longer bitterly, on a different mattress --
Who knows if we'll run into each other
This day next year?
Or to wait for our second acquaintance,
Indulging in vain wishes --
So anxiously in this banquet
Of our newly wedded friend?
This day next year;
who can endure, so willingly, the changes time makes?
Sixty years thereafter, may I still find traces of you
From the kids you bear;
Or say our final adieus before everything ends.
I've spent all my luck just for your one-time visit in my life;
not till this day have I come to realise:
I had at least breathed in this total emptiness.
