Thinking of You
When will the moon be clear and bright?
With a cup of wine in my hand, I ask the blue sky.
I don’t know what season it would be in the heavens on this night.
I’d like to ride the wind to fly home.
Yet I fear the crystal and jade mansions are much too high and cold for me.
Dancing with my moon-lit shadow
It does not seem like the human world
The moon rounds the red mansion Stoops to silk-pad doors
Shines upon the sleepless Bearing no grudge
Why does the moon tend to be full when people are apart?
People may have sorrow or joy, be near or far apart
The moon may be dim or bright, wax or wane
This has been going on since the beginning of time
May we all be blessed with longevity Though far apart,
we are still able to share the beauty of the moon together.
The Lantern Festival
Lanterns look like thousands of flowers aglow;
Later like stars, from the skies, fallen below.
On main streets, horses and carriages ply.
There, ladies shed perfume, as they pass by.
Orchestral music and song greet our ears,
As the moon, slow and steady, eastward veers.
Of the Spring Festival, this night marks the end.
The whole night, capering, carps and dragons spend.
Adorned with ribbons or paper flowers on their head,
Clad in their best raiment, something bright or red,
Women squeeze their way among the festive crowd,
As they talk and laugh; even giggle aloud.
Rouged and powdered; perfumed to their heart's content,
They cannot but leave behind a subtle scent.
Up and down the main streets, I must have run—
A thousand times or more in quest of one,
Who I have concluded, cannot be found;
For, everywhere, no trace of her can be seen,
When, all of a sudden, I turned about,
That's her, where lanterns are few and far between.
20 Reasons Why I Love You
I love the way you scream at me,
every single night
I love the way you wonder
if that was our last fight
I love the way you sleep,
comfortably upon my arms
I love the way you drift,
without and within my charms
I love the way you hug me,
with your ear upon my heart
I love the way you kiss me,
not even a centimeter apart
I love the way you seduce me,
take part in all my dreams
I love the way you make love to me,
it’s all I need it seems
I love the way your body swings
back and forth in motion
I love the way you say “I love you”
with all of your devotion
I love the way your whole body looks,
back and to the front
I love the way you care for me
when our emotions are too blunt
I love the way you break my heart
and repair it once more
I love the way you turn to me and hope
I wouldn’t ignore
I love the way you fall
within my arms right before you cry
I love the way you look at me
and stare at me with those eyes
I love the way you talk to me
until you fall asleep
I love the way you listen
to those secrets I cannot keep
I love the way you linger
on about the simple things
I love the way you give me risks
for what your heart might bring?
That’s the end of this list,
but I’m sure that’s only a few
I just can’t think straight
when my mind is always on you
I loved you from the beginning,
from the first night we dated
I can’t take it anymore;
I loved what your love has created
