The Little Shy Rose Bud

I steer my dream boat    
rowing downstream      
to find Tao Yuanming’s      
Peach Blossom Spring      
in the secluded Pacific ring      
where people live on the earth edge      
unware of the outside world for ages      
     
Where I have witnessed        
the little shy rose bud      
hides her heart in the pistil        
forgot the season calling      
missed the best time blooming      
even never let others relate to her thinking      
     
Ah, my little shy rose bud      
why don’t you probe out to see      
what’s the world going to be      
let’s sit side by side      
listen to the song      
sung by the moon and sun      
     
Night comes after day      
flows come before ebbs      
this life won’t ever long stay      
and we won’t own each other      
for another ten decades      
     
Spring goes and comes      
flowers fade and bloom      
nothing but love will last      
as long as you would love to      
I will sail my dream boat to you      
     
I happened to see      
your showering petal tears      
as bright as sunbeams      
prove that your heart still has dreams      
why not let your crystal clear tears      
falls into my non-alcohol beer      
then we sail our dream boat      
to where the sky meets the sea      
watch the horizon in one hue with glee      
     
Get on board      
my little shy rose bud      
let’s set sail beyond the border      
where decorated with diamond dew      
the glistening heady brew      
color the sky and sea in blue      
and I am, I am your crew
