Poem by Abahn Leth (Lê Thành Bá)
THERE’RE A LOT OF MY OWN INMOST FEELINGS!
Original Vietnamese song : “Có Những Niềm Riêng.”
There’re a lot of my own inmost feelings.
How can I pour out them all, finish saying.
Like clouds, the rain and sand in the sea,
Immensely and countlessly!
A lot of my own inmost feelings with their way
How can anyone know as the moon in the sky faraway!
A lot of my own inmost feelings through my lifetime
Affected by tears in the corners of eyes.
As trees after a rain with drops of sadness glistening.
There’re a lot of my own inmost feelings
To make my heart start sobbing!
To make my pretty lips wither my smiles!
O! My own inmost feelings as eyes Bath in tears with a sigh more or less
Somewhere about here resound with something endless
Like an invitation of sadness forever…
Alas! The freezing sadness toweringly high!
Day by day, everyday, thousands of days of sigh.
All things never change! A change for the better!
There’re inmost feelings I want not to remember
But why does my heart always dream to get
There’re inmost feelings seem to be a breath
That nurture my wait, nurture my solitary life!
There’re inmost feelings all my life I hide!
As they seem to be the moss or the seaweed wallowed in the ocean.
There’re inmost feelings all my life I keep them silence!
For my future death I’ll still have some grief being dumb.
There’re inmost feelings all my life I keep mum
For my future death I ‘ll still have some grief being dumb…
