Life is Short, Kiss the Rose

I can spend forever to trace
These soft delicate rosy curves.
My eyes are lost in this lovely shape,
Yours is craft created by nature.
My fingers can’t keep in proper place
To trail in front grace, tender.
My lips close the space
And your kiss back stills the earth.

Everything Is Beautiful Because Of the Grey Sky

Everything is so beautiful
Under the grey sky.
Like the paint on the white tile.
Everything is so beautiful
By the heart and the truth.
Neither a word to lie nor a spotlight to shine.
Isn’t everything more beautiful
Because of the grey sky?

Life is so beautiful
On the plain backgroud.
In winter, I can’t have you around.
Life is as beautiful
As a rose before a summer rain.
“Seeing you again” is a sweet pain.
Life wouldn’t be this beautiful
Without the plain background.

Everything is beautiful
Because the sky is not blue.
The storm may come without any clues, but
Everything is beautiful
Because you’re with me. We’ve lived among
People’s kindness and nature’s beauty.
Everything is beautiful
Because the sky today is not blue.
