The time-frame of loving or being loved

She said that she would never raise a cat again.

She said that she was deeply hurt upon
the death of her cat some years ago, therefore
she dared not raise another one to
avoid being hurt once again upon
the separation with her cat when it died.   
 
She was reminded that it would be the cat being deeply hurt
if she died earlier than the cat! 
 
In fact, affection can be mutual and 
your counterpart can have a same feeling as you have.
 
We have only one life!  If you have the confidence to have 
an affectoin-tied relationship between you and whoever, 
never bypass the affection you just fear to lose ultimately.

Smiling April Lady

 April is a season of examinations.

April comes again this year.

Thousands of students are taking public examinations 
fighting for entry to universities.

I no more need to take any public examinations. 
But when every April comes,
those sweet puppy love sweet memories
always reappear vividly in my mind,
telling me how sweet I was when
I studied hard for the examinations in
the public library's study room,
 with the smiling April lady sitting nearby...

April Lady - Sam Hui

Are you lonely and feeling small
Don't run and hide girl you won't lose it all
I've been there before i still won't close the door
Won't you look at me i'm not so young
I've lived in love now i know you're the one
There's nothing left to say and dreams must fade away
April lady smile
I've touched on my soul while you're crying
April lady smile
I've touched a face and i'm not crying i'm not lying
April lady smile
I've touched on my soul while you're crying
April lady smile
I've touched a face and i'm not crying i'm not lying
Yes i'm lonely and feeling small
Won't run there before i still won't close the door
So don't leave me won't you even try
To see it though you don't need to ask me why
I guess nobody knows and it just goes to shows
April lady smile
I've touched a face and i'm not crying

四月滿溢的甜蜜笑容


  四月是考試的季節。

今年的四月此刻又來了。
萬千學生現正努力大學入學試。


現在那些公開考試早已遠我而去了。


但是,每年每當四月到臨,
那些初戀甜蜜的回憶,都湧現眼前。


當我在公立圖書館的溫習室溫書時,

我是多麼幸福:

坐在身旁的有那一個那麼可愛的女生,
她的笑容滿溢著四月的甜蜜。

Drawing Lines In Life

 We need to draw lines in my life frequently,
between right and wrong,
between good and bad,
between love and hate.
 
Such lines are not easy to draw!
So better take some drawing courses,
learn to draw lines, with confidence and firm judgement,
that are the basics for drawing beautiful lines.

The Bones of you - Debbie Howells
 

 
The Elbow - The Bones of You

 

So I'm there,
Charging around with a juggernaut brow
Overdraft speeches and deadlines to make
Cramming commitments like cats in a sack
Telephone burn and a purposeful gait

When out of a doorway the tentacles stretch
Of a song that I know and the world moves in slow-mo
Straight to my head like the first cigarette of the day

And it's you and it's May
And we're sleeping through the day
And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away

Do I have time? A man of my calibre?
Stood in the street like a sleepwalking teenager?
No. And I dealt with this years ago
I took a hammer to every memento

But image on image like beads on a rosary
Pull through my head as the music takes hold
And the sickener hits, I could work till I break
But I love the bones of you, that I will never escape

And it's you, and it's May
And we're sleeping through the day
And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away

And I can't move my arm
For the fear that you will wake
And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away

And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away
And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away

And it's you and its May
And we're sleeping through the day
And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away

Saddening face

Usually when one gets old,
edges of his mouth will turn down,
 
A down-turned mouth will
give others an impression that one is sad
because the whole face become saddened.
A saddened face is not appealing,
it turns people away.
 
But this saddened face is brought up
by unavoidable physiological decline!
 
Need to avoid!
So do some facials! 
or
just simply smile more!

Say less, listen more

 
When I was young,
I said less,
but listened more.
I said less, it was because I was not dominant.
I listened much, it was becasue I wanted to learn more.
 
When I am getting old,
I say more,
but I listen less.
 
I say more, it is because
I am becoming long-winded,
I never say enough!
I listen less, it is becasue 
I am becoming impatient,
I don't know where my life leads to.
 
I know that, if I don't want to waste my life,
even I am getting old,
I should keep myself young,
by saying less,
and listening more.

Adele - Chasing Pavements
 
 
I've made up my mind,
Don't need to think it over,
If I'm wrong I am right,
Don't need to look no further,
This ain't lust,
I know this is love but,
If I tell the world,
I'll never say enough,
Cause it was not said to you,
And that's exactly what I need to do,
If I'm in love with you,
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even If I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere
I'd build myself up,
And fly around in circles,
Waiting as my heart drops,
And my back begins to tingle
Finally could this be it or
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even if I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere yeah
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if, it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even if I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep on chasing pavements?
Should I just keep on chasing pavements? Or
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
Or would it be a waste?
Even if I knew my place should I leave it there?
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere

Her face fades...

She was my secondary school mate.
 
She should have been my puppy lover
if I dared to express my feeling of love to her then.
 
Looking back, she is the girl I love the most.
 
But recently, her face fades in my mind.
 
I know that my love to her never fades.
 
Her faces fades in my mind just
because my memory weakens,
 
surely not because
my feeling of love for her fades...

逆時光的浪
Back in time
詞:畢書盡、陳又齊
曲:畢書盡、陳又齊

OS: 기도할게 행복하길 사랑했다
(我會祈禱 祝你幸福 我們愛過)

回家的路 像是迷失了方向
想念的人 但卻忘記了模樣

我在等待什麼呢?也許我在等待
是一種永遠沒有結果的緣份

你走的路 是我想念的地方
或許我們 總是忽略了對方

我還等待什麼呢?也許我在等待
是一種永遠無法取代的緣份

每當我逆著時光 搜尋你的臉龐
回憶是人海的浪 穿越不了遠方
親愛的等我好嗎?靠近我左心房

我在這 我在這 我在這 別忘了
天亮了 雨停了 失去了 我還等著

你走的路 是我想念的地方

이제는 여기서 기도해야겠지 그대 행복하길

我還等著 我還等著

The State of Mind of Retiring

If she were a wicked woman,
she should have strong urge to complete all her dirty jobs
before she would retire from her workplace,
as she knows that she would lose all her authority
to do her dirty jobs after retirement.
And others would start to take revenge on her.
To defend herself, she would become even more wicked,  
when retiring and after retirement...  
But if she is not a wicked woman, 
her state of mind will be different:  
she wants to have some more good memories for her workplace,
she makes a few more friends sourced from her colleagues, or   
she develops a few more areas of interest from her profession.
To embrace what she positively pursues,
she becomes much more accommodating
when retiring and after retirement...

Angus and Julia Stone - Heart Beats Slow

 Well I heard you were
You were lying
About how brave you are
Well I heard you were
You were still trying
Trying to get back to the start

No, he won't let it into the kitchen
No, he won't let it into the house
No, he won't let it through the front door
'Cause it's burning her pretty little heart

I'm gonna miss you
Gonna miss you, girl
And all of the things we could've done

You said I move so fast
That you can hardly see
You said I move so fast
How could you be with me?

But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow

Well, I wish you, wish you well
All the best
Well, I wish you, I wish you well
All the best

No, he won't let it into the kitchen
No, he won't let it into the house
No, he won't let it through the front door
'Cause it's burning her pretty little heart

You said I move so fast
That you can hardly see
You said I move so fast
How could you be with me?

But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow

Can you keep a secret?

To keep a secret or not,
or to be able to keep a secret or not,
either way changes one's life a lot !
But it is not sure keeping a secret can make life better or worse.
It also depends much on one's fate!
Yes, it depends~

The Song-writer and the Writer

I bought a book "The Versions of Us" by Laura Burnett
at the London Heathrow Airport in a hurry
with the coins left after a group tour,
just picking the book as recommenced by the book chain,
not really knowing what the book was.
 
  

When I started to read the book in the plane,
I read a line saying "You and me making history. This is us" by Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris".
I know Mark Knopfler who is a songwriter. 
Because of Mark Knopfler,
I seem to be more familar with this book's writer,
and want to read through the book.
