lady waited an eternity, finally entering the qielan temple became a nun

general finally returned and lady already passed on

++++

繁華聲 遁入空門 折煞了世人

sound of the bustling world enters the realm of nothingness leaving regrets for all


夢偏冷 輾轉一生 情債又幾本

dream getting cold, always turning and tossing, how many books of love indebtedness?


如妳默認 生死枯等

should you acknowledge, ever awaiting in live or in death..


枯等一圈 又一圈的年輪

awaiting the tree rings, circle and the next circle of life


浮屠塔 斷了幾層 斷了誰的魂

buddha stupa how many levels broken?*whose soul has it broken?


痛直奔 一盞殘燈 傾塌的山門

the pain gushes towards a fading lamp, a collapsed mountain gate


容我再等 歷史轉身

allow me to wait still, let history turn around


等酒香醇 等妳彈 一曲古箏

wait for the wine to mellow, wait for you to play a song on the guzheng


雨紛紛 舊故里草木深

it’s drizzling, our old hometown with deep undergrowth..


我聽聞 妳始終一個人

I heard, you remain single and alone


斑駁的城門 盤踞著老樹根

the ancient tree trunks entangled around the mottled city gate


石板上迴盪的是 再等

the stone bench reverberates “wait on”..

雨紛紛 舊故里草木深

it’s drizzling, our old hometown with deep undergrowth..


我聽聞 妳仍守著孤城

I heard, you still keeping vigil in the abandoned city..


城郊牧笛聲 落在那座野村

sound of cowherd flute in the suburbs, falling on which uncharted village?


緣份落地生根是 我們

we, our fate, have landed and borrowed roots


聽青春 迎來笑聲 羨煞許多人

hear the sound and laughter of youth, admired by so many…

那史冊 溫柔不肯 下筆都太狠

the history, gentle and unwilling, to record too ruthlessly


煙花易冷 人事易分

the fireworks easily turn cold, and people and things easily gone apart…


而妳在問我是否還 認真

and you are asking me if I am still serious?


千年後 累世情深 還有誰在等

after a thousand years, of tired world and deep affection, who is still waiting?


而青史 豈能不真 魏書洛陽城

and history records, cannot be untrue, the book on wei luoyang…


如妳在跟 前世過門

should you be following, wedding me in a previous life…


跟著紅塵 跟隨我 浪跡一生

follow the terra cota dream, follow me. a life of nomadic wandering…


雨紛紛 舊故里草木深

it’s drizzling, our old hometown with deep undergrowth..


我聽聞 妳始終一個人

I heard, you remain single and alone


斑駁的城門 盤踞著老樹根

the ancient tree trunks entangled around the mottled city gate


石板上迴盪的是 再等

the stone bench reverberates “wait on”..


雨紛紛 舊故里草木深

it’s drizzling, our old hometown with deep undergrowth..


我聽聞 妳始終一個人

I heard, you remain single and alone


斑駁的城門 盤踞著老樹根

the ancient tree trunks entangled around the mottled city gate


石板上迴盪的是 再等

the stone bench reverberates “wait on”..


雨紛紛 舊故里草木深

it’s drizzling, our old hometown with deep undergrowth..


我聽聞 妳仍守著孤城

I heard, you still keeping vigil in the abandoned city..


城郊牧笛聲 落在那座野村

sound of cowherd flute in the suburbs, falling on which uncharted village?


緣份落地生根是 我們

we, our fate, have landed and borrowed roots


緣份落地生根是 我們

we, our fate, have landed and borrowed roots


伽藍寺聽雨聲盼 永恆

at the qielan temple listening to sound of rain and contemplating eternity

*building every level of stupa is accumulating merits for afterlife, the highest is 7 levels…
