She is in heaven – Yuan Hang

On that deep autumn  night
She left softly
And never came back.
Mama told me she had gone to heaven.

I didn’t know how far away it was
I didn’t know if someone was with her keeping her company.
I sat on the stone steps in front of the house
Waiting for her to come back
I believed she was just on her way home.

Under the golden rays of the setting sun
I see her walking towards me, just as she always did
She shouts my nickname and hugs me,
I hold her hand,
Tell her never to leave me again.

The sun is slowly setting
She holds my hand
And we’re walking, walking.

We two; one old, one young
She is outspoken, while I am mute.

We two; one old, one young,
She is my hero, I am her shadow.

Hang Yuan, 2008
 

在那個深秋的夜晚
她轻轻地走了
再也没回来
妈妈告诉我,她去了天堂

我不知道,那地方有多遙遠
我不知道,在那里,她有没有人陪伴

我坐在門前的石阶上
等她回來
我相信, 她就在回家的路上

在橙色的夕阳照耀下
我看见她向我走来
就和往常一样
大声呼喊我的名字
我跑向她,拉住她的手
不让她再离开

夕阳慢慢的落去
她拉着我的手
我们就一直走, 一直走

我们一老一小
她大嗓门,我静悄悄

我们一老一小
她是我的英雄,我是她的影子
