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...

Sam Hui -  April Lady

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
