Dear My Heart,

 

Because my heart felt so painful, 

It was like walking with my head gone

 

Because my heart hurt,

It was like walking with my heart gone

I was walking without head and heart 

Then I came to miss the things I used to love, 

That my head remembers, 

And the people who loves me,

That my heart remembers

 

I talked to my heart,

If you are okay,

Everything that I love 

Would come back 

Don’t get hurt

Please don’t get hurt

Already, Spring is in Your Heart

 

 

That already has bloomed, Spring

 

Spring 

It had been there

In your heart,

Before your existence,

For your presence

 

Dreams the Spring

 

What Spring saw was

A beautiful moment, 

The loving moment

When neither question nor answer

is needed,

When nothing need to be done

 

Let us water the Spring

Not to dry,

But to be in a fuller bloom

 

Spring is already in your heart

A Poem for Love

 

 

You may not know 

How beautiful You and I are

 

How blue today’s sky is,

How warmly the horizon of the sea stands,

How long the refreshing breeze stays around you, 

Everything around you exists for your being

 

A tear flows when we ended up being broken away

While staring at the unreachable point,

When nothing can fill our empty hearts,

When we breath out a cold cry in silence,

When the only thing we can see is 

Stars in the sky after everything is gone

 

At night when we can finally embrace 

“ourselves” becoming complete,

After going through agonies prepared 

For you and me.

 

Let us see whatever deserves to be seen

Let us learn all the measures to love each of us

Let us have everlasting eyes of beauty and love 

Let us smile peacefully

Let us say that nothing is lacking

Let us appreciate everything we have

Let us live as a human being 

Who shines in the darkness

 

Let us look for love,

While letting go of things we have been pursuing for

 

Let us love, 

Love

Smile of Your Earth

 

 

I have filled up your withering earth with my tears

The reason why I cry 

Is not because of my sorrow

Let me just cry for you who keeps drying,

I do not want to cry for myself

A tear I shed shall not be used 

Only for myself

When my tears,

With all of my heart,

Fill you up, 

I want to walk with you in the woods 

A Flower Blooms from A Breath

 

 

Do you know that a flower blooms from a breath

Even in your anxious moan that sharpens your heart,

The breath needs to maintain itself steady

 

For that flower

I,

 

Would like to have a breath

That is as clear as fresh water

That is as refreshing as a breeze

That is as blue as autumn sky

That is as innocent as a child's smile

 

Would like to have a humble breath

That is just right enough for my destiny

 

Would like to have a breath

That humbly takes what is given

 

Would like to breathe 

to love

Rather than to live

 

Would like to breathe 

to appreciate

For painful dark valleys that I have been through

 

Would like to breathe 

to know

The purpose of my life

 

Would like to have a breathe 

to bloom a flower

From seemingly endless sadness and loneliness

 

May there be more blooming beautiful flowers
