Time always seems rushed and precise.
I couldn't help but watch the sun go down the mountain.
Like this highland,
Towering into the sky along the edge of the sea.
What kind of sound of nature will forget the warning.
Mother was gradually drifting away
Yes, she will does eventually leave.
The song that should sound when the sun sets.
Keep silent.

Wind blowing over the farm.
Did not stop playing.
Why did I only hear the sound of the treetops?
Scratching my heart
Scratching my innermost being
Never asked me about the scars left behind
When to fix?
Naturally, you won’t ask.
Facing a delicate and frail girl like me.

A loving marriage,
Why was it so unbearable and fragile?
Tribulation of war, lingering shadow of death,
Forced to take everything away.
Why was everything so pale in my dreams?
But everything in everything,
the very thought of
That kiss has never been realized.
Until the last time we met.


Spring breeze blowing
The wind chimes follow jingle-jangle all the way
Maple leaves drift with it
Take away all my cares so frivolously
Spring breeze blowing
Agitate the flag on the sail
Steam above sea level whistling out like a roaring monster
The ocean that has been warmed up is rolling

Spring breeze has no willing to change
Looking around for whales hidden inside the ocean
The tracks that is difficult to track
Forget itself
In a fuzzy consciousness
Leave a hint of exclamation
When is the heart no longer hurt?

The sun sometimes fails to keep an appointment
Why is dark night sure to come every day?
Maybe you can find it under the moon
That course following the Big Dipper
Spring breeze always attracts a riot of spring here and there
You must always remember
Never lose
That footprint goes forward


The grass is warm in the spring sunshine
Spread on the surrounding hillside boundlessly
Until the front endlessly and incomparably
The wind not only shakes the leaves of the old tree
Also slowly moving the clouds
Inviting that white like birds' feathers
Dyeing the clear sky

Colored flowers scattered everywhere
Give a subtle smell
The birds’ quarrels are heard everywhere.
Like the sound of a bamboo flute resounding through in the air
It’s all like telling
How beautiful is the scenery in this village?
Around the town
Bird's dance and floral fragrance
Wind unfolding hands
Trying to surround you in its embrace

Small temple at the end of the street
Unsealed fences and murals
Can't find any gemstones and brilliant bronze statues
And when you calm down
Sitting in front of the plate you can find
The sediment that belongs to your mind is actually mixed between the grass

The streetlight that just turned on is not so bright
The beggar sitting against all the wrinkles on face
Arms that are obviously thin and dry
Try to support his determined eyes
Look at your heart every day at the corner of the street


Pond-Water Road, which is in front of my face
Old plowing bull with a pair of blurred eyes
Who is exempting the plow on its neck?
Lamenting heart
If it’s just the temporary mood of the old plowing bull
Not the sigh that no longer has to be enslaved
You surely clear in mind
I really shouldn’t ask
Is this your heaven-born destiny?
When you also have the same gray-haired as I have?
More sadness will not help, we are not together until today
Come on
Let's sing together a song that celebrates the white head
Why don’t you invite the old plow to rest?
Just for sit on a porch swing with but never need say a word
