Love and longing come on solitary wings,
Heaven and Earth wither in lovesickness.
By the roadside, a remnant of autumn remains.
By the window, a lone figure watches the falling rain.
Loves the river still recall its old shore?
Wild, untamed moments in an evening downpour,
A silky embrace, a pair of warm lips,
Love as ravishing as a poem!
If you leave, please hasten back.
Time slips by so quickly and melancholy will ripen.
When reunited, we'll chant the song of endless time,
Sharing joys and sorrows 'til our hair grows gray.
