The Cup of Hot Tea

Standard

Now I smile wider
Now I bounce higher
He kisses my forehead
My worries soothed
He’s my cup of tea
He warms my soul

The Gent

Standard

I fall for him every day
His smile, his eyes
His patience, a real man
I fall in love again and again
With him every day
Him, my favourite gent

The Dark Knight

Standard

He emerged from darkness
Dirt, gloom, melancholy
He came forth in midst of chaos
Mud, murk, desolation
A hand reached out from the rain
An arm stretched around my waist
Upward
To where oxygen was
Forward
To where hopes lay
He lifted me from the dark
Showing me the sunny side every day

The Scented Girl

Standard

Spring sadness
Heart drunk in spring sadness
Speechless
I’ve left myself speechless
Chilly evening rain
Shaky iced vodka
Sweet dreams or nightmares
A picture without colour
A blossom too old
An ice cube that’s not cold
Million words behind her grim smile
Perhaps her confessions, perhaps her rejections
Rock, rock, rocking
Sway, sway, swaying
But her scent never fades
How can I ever escape

Translation of Jacky Cheung’s Li Xiang-lan
