Lyre: For You

  For You
     Lyre tr. Fan Jinghua
This is the landscape we have never seen before.
In front of her face, I forgive your lack of luster,
And I’ll leave you alone in the sun and free
to shed as many tears as you like.

After the supper smoke dissolves behind us, god will
have washed you clean and returned you to me.

Mountains and rivers meander as ever, and I no longer permit you
to be broken once again. Your white name under the blue
starry sky will broaden the water
        March 11, 2008

   给你
      莱耳
这是我们从未见过的景色
在她面前,我原谅你的黯淡
让你一个人呆着,阳光下
流很多的眼泪

我们身后的炊烟散去,神
洗净你,并把你还给我

山河婉转,我不许你再破碎
蓝色星空下,你白色的名字
使河水更辽阔
