How to make you meet me
At my most beautiful moment
For this, I have been in the Buddha for five hundred years.
Asking Buddha to let us knot this dust
Buddha turned me into a tree
Growing in the sunshine along the road you must pass
Carefully filled with flowers
Blossoming is the hope of my past life.
When you approach, please listen carefully.
The trembling leaves are the enthusiasm I am waiting for.
And when you finally walked by disregard
Falling behind you
Oh my friend
That is not the petals
Is my dying heart
I feel that the translation of this poem is simply a translation of Chinese into English. But there’s no mood of poetry. It just translates word by word. “I have been in the Buddha for five hundred years” this one is not the original meaning. “Asking Buddha to let us knot this dust” the original meaning of 尘缘 is the happy fate which brings lovers together or destiny that ties people together.
