The day I met you

我的歌声里 – 曲婉婷

You Exist In My Song – Qu Wan Ting

 

没有一点点防备

Without any precaution

也没有一丝顾虑

And without any trace of apprehension

你就这样出现在我的世界里

You suddenly appeared in my world

带给我惊喜 情不自己

Bringing me a surprise I couldn’t resist

可是你偏又这样 在我不知不觉中

But, you did it simply, unknowingly by me

悄悄的消失 从我的世界里

You quietly disappeared from my world

没有音讯 剩下的只是回忆

Without a word leaving me in memories

你存在 我深深的脑海里

You exist deeply in my deep mind

我的梦里 我的心里 我的歌声里

My dreams, my heart and my song

你存在 我深深的脑海里

You exist deeply in my deep mind

我的梦里 我的心里 我的歌声里

My dreams, my heart and my song

还记得我们曾经 肩并肩一起走过那段繁华巷口

Still remember when we walked side by side through the bustling corner

尽管你我是陌生人 是过路人

Although we were just strangers passing by

但彼此还是感觉到了对方的

Our feeling touched each other

一个眼神 一个心跳

One glance one heartbeat

一种意想不到的快乐

It was an unexpected pleasure

好像是

It is like

一场梦境 命中注定

One destined dream

你存在 我深深的脑海里

You exist deeply in my deep mind

我的梦里 我的心里 我的歌声里

My dreams, my heart and my song

你存在 我深深的脑海里

You exist deeply in my deep mind

我的梦里 我的心里 我的歌声里

My dreams, my heart and my song

世界之大为何我们相遇

Why did we meet in such a big world?

难道是缘分

Is it a fate?

难道是天意

Is it a God’s will?

你存在 我深深的脑海里

You exist deeply in my deep mind

我的梦里 我的心里 我的歌声里

My dreams, my heart and my song

你存在 我深深的脑海里

You exist deeply in my deep mind

我的梦里 我的心里 我的歌声里

My dreams, my heart and my song

你存在 我深深的脑海里

You exist deeply in my deep mind

我的梦里 我的心里 我的歌声里

My dreams, my heart and my song

 

I crossed path with this song few weeks ago on youtube. This song really tells the story of us. It all started with a coincidence exactly 1 year ago. I arrived from Indonesia while she came from the UK. We met in an unthinkable place. None of us expected the encounter. We got really close, a lot of things have happened since last year. Good and bad. Laughters and tears. Sadness and happiness. We have gone through them all together one by one, step by step. We have fallen so many times just to bring us back on the rise. Then it came 2 months ago when she disappeared in tears. I was back into my slum, crawling dirt on the wall to grasp for fresh air. I will never give up longing for you. I will wait for your return.

 

Today, a year ago, we were just two strangers passing by in a ward.

Today, a year after, you remain deeply in my mind and heart.

Can’t We Start Over Again?

CAN’T WE START OVER AGAIN

 

It’s been a long long while

I know I’ve caused you pain

Living without you it’s not quite the same

Can we start over again?

 

I’ve played around too long

Running from end to end

Took you for granted I’ve been such a fool

Can’t we start over again?

 

All through my life of seasons

No matter how far I long

Always there’s something missing inside

Yearning to come back home

 

You are the one I return to

Love only love leads the way

Give us this chance to start over again

Darling, I’m coming home to stay

This Heart Is Missing You

People have come and left me behind in this life

But losing you is totally a different misery

My life hasn’t been the same since you arrived

It will never be the same if you aren’t here with me

The loneliness is much more excruciating

We were one great force

Together we fought for our dreams

Never I have one settles as quickly as you to be part of me

This body and mind has lost its soul when you decided to leave

These lips lost its smiles

This heart lost its happiness

This world has lost its sun

Leaving me alone in deep dark sorrow

Will I ever see another sun?

Will this eclipse end tomorrow?

Will we ever meet once again?

Can we start all over again?

Leave all the pain and vain behind

Look to our future and happiness in the end

I will always wait for you to return…

One Princess

THE PRINCESS

Thousands of stars lighten the night

A loneliness still in me without you on my side

New day comes new beginning

Will the sun warm the earth in this cold morning?

Earth depends on the sun, the moon and the stars

I don’t… I just need you

The first day when I met you in a random coincidence

It was like the sun finally rises after a long eclipse

Never I regret sitting for hours on the road side

Grounding myself under extreme heat just to see you for a minute

Many countless smiles you have drawn

A prestigious diamond I have found

You undoubtedly bring me a new life

I wish I would have the chance to refund

Before it is my time to be in the heaven

Endlessly I promise to fight for it… for your happiness

You are a beautiful angel came to my world

On my way to survive the slum

Ultimate happiness I could only be grateful for knowing you

Roses are created immortal representing your eternal beauty

Happy Tatty Teddy tells the story of us

A thousand stars to brighten your nights

Pandora box full of hearts to genuinely love you

Princess… you definitely deserve your happiness

In this day when you turn a new page

New beginning you will write from today

Eternal happiness I wish you would earn

Sincerely I wish I could be your happiness

So sincere even if you would only love me for a day I will make you the happiest day.

Happy birthday, my dearest Princess, Wei.

My Sun

MY SUN

Day or night the sun never stops shining

It shines bright light for earth in the day

It gives a moon at night so earth is never lonely

Just like you keep on shining in my heart

 

Earth often forgets how important the sun is

But sun never gives up on the earth

Just like you keep on staying by my side

 

I could never imagine a life without you

I could never live my heart without you, my sun…

Please don’t ever leave me. Please stay with me. Please don’t give up on me…

240 Days

240 days
240 days ago 9:39 am
At the same time I write this
I saw a beautiful angel in front of me
A girl who is beautiful outside and more inside
A girl who managed to shattered my mind
A girl who stunted me and clenched my jaw
A girl who is charming, sweet and cute
A girl who drew a smile on my face
A girl who woke me up from my long sleep
A girl who carries me through thick and thin
A girl who hugs me and wipes my tears
A girl who wants to be with me despite my darkness
A girl who is hurt yet never gives up on me
A girl who is like a candle light in my darkness
She melts in pain and keeps on shining
A girl who is like a star in my night
She makes my nights beautiful
And my days colourful

240 days
240 days I spent with her
240 days we have known each other
We have had fights and cries
We have had laughters and tears
We have dived down the sea
And climbed up a mountain

240 days
240 days we never skip a day
240 days full of memories
Lots of tears but more of joy

240 days
From Mediterranean Islands to South Wales
From West Europe to East Asia
Day by day I fall in love with her more and more
Day by day I am longing for her more and more

240 days
Distance does not make a difference
Time does not have me tame

240 days
I cannot stop loving her
The girl I admire
The girl I care
The girl I miss
The girl I enjoy looking at
The girl I like to hug and cuddle
The girl I have my tears and laughs with
The girl I love purely wholeheartedly
From the deepest of my heart with the biggest honesty
The girl is you
Tan Wei Ting
I love you
I do love you
I really really do love you.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Wei Wei.

It is unfortunate I cannot be by your side today but at least I have made an earlier arrangement for this Valentine’s. I hope you will like and enjoy the gifts, chocolates, dinner, orchids, roses, and the trip to Lake District. Last week, when I spent my time with you, I am out of words to describe how beautiful and wonderful my happiness was. I hope I could stay by your side forever. I would like to still buy you a bouquet of roses and have a date with you when I am in my 80s.

With Love,
eldios

Stay Strong For You

UNTUKMU AKU BERTAHAN

Tenanglah kekasihku – Be calm my love

Ku tahu hatimu menangis – I know your heart cries

Beranilah dan percaya – Be brave and believe

Semua ini pasti berlalu – All these would fade away

Meski takkan mudah – Though it wouldn’t be easy

Namun kau takkan sendiri – But you’ll not be alone

Ku ada di sini – I am right here

 

Untukmu aku akan bertahan – For you I will stay strong

Dalam gelap takkan ku tinggalkan – In darkness, I won’t leave

Engkaulah teman sejati kasihku – You’re my true soulmate, my love

Di setiap hariku – In every day of mine

 

Untuk hatimu ku kan bertahan – For your heart I will stay strong

Sebentuk hati yang ku nantikan – A piece of heart I always long for

Hanya kau dan aku yang tahu – Only you and me would understand

Arti cinta yang telah kita punya – The true meaning of our love

-AFGAN©-

 

Translated by me.

 

26 weeks (182 days) ago. You came to my life. You didn’t just come and leave like other people. You stayed through many thick and thin. You survived through all heat and cold. You changed me. You transform my life. I was once a man who could care less about everything happening outside my world and inside me. I live my life from the time I open my eyes to close them again.

Then I saw you came. You shake my life. You teach me about love, about care, about kindness, about you. You tell me about having a heart. You build me to be a man. You stood strong when I crumbled down. You pulled me up when I slopped down. You draw a smile on my face. You brighten my days and lighten my nights. You shine inside me, in my heart. You give me warmth and love.

You made me love you for everything. You made me your warrior. You made me your other half. You made me significant.

I may not be able to pay for all you have brought for me. All I can do is fighting to be your happiness for now and ever. I have promised you that I will not leave you, that I will stay for you and be your happiness.

I sang the above song for you on 10th December 2014 on our way to London. I meant it every each word of it.

Half a year today. Many decades to come.

For your happiness, I survive. For my happiness, I love you.

For Wei.

With Love,

Day 9 – How Could I Tell You?

Rain drops in a summer night

The sky is as gloomy as my heart

Standing on the bay

Staring far away

 

Sea waves roll high tides

Ocean lose their calms

Tonight it is one bumpy ride

In one of the dark realms

 

Oh love.

How much more should I say it out?

Don’t you hear my heart screaming loud?

 

Once upon a time not so long ago

On an old bench in this summer night

Through my eyes I have let you understood

You believe so I love you

 

But things have probably now altered

The dark days and miserable nights

Left you out questioned if I were honest

If I were just a little old unloved boy

 

Oh love.

How could I tell you the truth?

If you would never unlock your heart?

 

Oh love.

How would you feel what I feel?

If you would never glance on me?

 

Oh love.

You may never believe what I have said.

I love you.

 

Not because of longing for care

Not because of missing a girl

Not because you look after

 

I could give you thousands of reasons.

But love is sometimes so simple.

You brought me back to dreams.

You breath me into life.

You shine my heart.

You are my everything.

 

It is unfortunate that you don’t love me so.

It is worse when I can’t have the chance to prove my love.

It is worst when you disbelieve my true love.

 

Standing on the shore.

Tears stream on my shoulders.

How could I tell you?

I love you, Wei.

For everything you are.

From the deepest heart of mine.

In all honesty.

This is love that I feel upon you
