Caged Bird

The wind bear down on me from behind
Mixed with the sounds of the wings
Don't need to care too much
That's not from my wings
Not from my companions too

The wind bypassed the wires and passed through the cage
Did not stop at all
It's me shouted at her
It's me handed over her the words of heart
But forgot
left words to her
Who should the message be handed over to?

Retreated to the nest in the cage
The blames from the entire of companions
But unable to resolve the imprisonment in my heart
Also couldn't face the gradually dying wing
I really wanted to sneak a peek
Who was fanning away from the wind?
Who was following the wind that is flying freely?

Snow Does Not Fall In My Hometown

When the moon stretched out its head in the gap between the clouds
The white light makes a silver world
The old hometown does not snow
Looking down the street from the second floor window
Street lights painted yellow on the brick surface
Street tree channeling high from the darkness
Leaves all fell due to the cold winter
Distorted branches towering into the sky
Songs of blessings come from far away
With the wings of imagination
simple-hearted leading the ride on the colored dragon
The wind whistled in the ears
The scaly claws of the dragon scratch the clenched hands
Candy hanging in the waist
By socks loopholes fall out
One second
Has been fleeing into the top of the cloud
Screaming over the head of Mom and Dad
Too late to lift their heads
They will be crazy shouting
Where to get the red boots
They must then pray
Let our baby daughter slow down

The Songs Always Weeping
As The Sun Is Going Down

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 all of the warnings.
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.
