To a Friend Who Passed Away
Everytime I close my eyes
You would dance on the dazzling sky
A beam of moonlight shines from afar
Upon the glistening stars.
Suddenly, the rain started falling
Your vague shadow, slowly fading
I kneel down on my knees, begging you please don't leave
Only to find you, washed away, by my river of tears.
I woke up with my shivering hands
A sweat drop streaks on my face
The chilly wind makes me tremble
Of how you - my dear angel - were taken away.
I missed how your hair tangled to mine
I missed how we're lying on the corn-field hay
I missed how those sad raven eyes can haunted my mind
I missed how your seldom smiles can brighten up my day.
Without you, is like a winter without spring
Walking through a blizzard, with snowflakes piercing through my heart
Without you, is like a candle without match
A fire with no light, no warmth - to embrace me in the dark.
But my tears have to flow backward
Because I can hear your voice, softly whisper,
That you are smiling on heaven,
Within the arms of God and angels.
You're released from the living's endless pains
You're released from your parents, who beat you days and nights
You're released from your friends, who laughed at your scars in the next morning
You're released from me… a useless shield that has never been able to protect you.
The waves of memories keep hitting onto my shore
Neither can I swim, nor can I drown
Since I can hear you softly whispered
That I will end up dead - like you - in the ocean of time.
I can only watch you silently
When a light breeze wraps around my body
When a rainbow unveils behind the black clouds
When a star twinkles in the midst of darkness.
O’, how ephemeral life can be
Within the constant galaxy of time
I'm sorry - my dear friend - that I can't flip back the page
But you - will hold forever in my heart.
