I love you, my Sweetheart
like a forest in need of trees for its embellishment
a deer strolling around a spring for refreshment
as image with its shadow, we’re tied in difficulties
when living far from each other, I lived in worries.
A romantic duo like the flowers for the meadows
the rain refreshing the fields after the fall of snow
I had no complaint about the pains I’d encountered
what I ‘d longed for was side by side with my lover.
Our love was ornamented with beautiful flowers
My heart was satiated with many emotional colors
My flowery boat (*) didn’t shift to other directions
as it had many hymns to love in its composition.
A romantic Duo, like a couple of birds side by side
spreading their wings to fly elegantly over the sky
a celebration of their honeymoon on the white clouds
enjoying their reward in peaceful melodious sound.
(*)N.B: Flowery boat: romantic image of a wedding in the Vietnamese countryside in the Mekong Delta where it will receive the daughter-in-law on a boat decorated with beautiful flowers.
