ne me quitte pas.

Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine
Et nos amours
Faut-il qu’il m’en souvienne
La joie venait toujours après la peine

Vienne la nuit sonne l’heure
Les jours s’en vont je demeure

Les mains dans les mains restons face à face
Tandis que sous
Le pont de nos bras passe
Des éternels regards l’onde si lasse

Vienne la nuit sonne l’heure
Les jours s’en vont je demeure

L’amour s’en va comme cette eau courante
L’amour s’en va
Comme la vie est lente
Et comme l’Espérance est violente

Vienne la nuit sonne l’heure
Les jours s’en vont je demeure

Passent les jours et passent les semaines
Ni temps passé
Ni les amours reviennent
Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine

Vienne la nuit sonne l’heure
Les jours s’en vont je demeure

—Pont Mirabeau par Guillaume Apollinaire


Under the Mirabeau bridge flows the Seine
And our loves
Must I remember them
Joy always followed after painLet the night fall and the hours ring
The days go away, I remain

Hand in hand let us stay face to face
while underneath
the bridge of our arms passes
the so-slow wave of eternal looks

Let the night fall and the hours ring
The days go away, I remain

Love goes away like this flowing water
Love goes away
How slow life is
How violent hope is

Let the night fall and the hours ring
The days go away, I remain

The days pass and the weeks pass
Neither past time
Nor past loves return
Under the Mirabeau bridge flows the Seine

    Merci, mais c’est vrai?

    好久,連話都說不出口。
    很抱歉
    我的沉默。

    我會回去的。

    敢愛就放縱一下吧。

    受傷?
    管他的。

    這麼爛漫的城市。值得的。

    啊,謝謝你無言的祝福。。
    這次,我選擇相信。

    On y va!!!

    My dear friends, run run run for it.
    No more questions no more doubts.
    STOP STALLING FOR TIME.
    Learn a new language,
    step into unknown territory,
    get a grip on life.
    FALL MADLY IN LOVE.
    dream
    embrace
    cry
    mourn
    then pick up the broken pieces of your heart and move on.
    It cannot get any better, nor worse.
    Don’t we all die in lightness?
