Angelika, Listen


Listen, Angelika, listen,
Do not lose your ray of hope.
Doctors are not always right,
diagnosis may be wrong!
You know, machines too
don't ever work properly.
Look, hey My angel, lift
lift your head-
Oh! Angela! You are weeping!
We are tight-roping, between
life and death, half in life
and half in death is our
step! Biopsy Report tells
your breasts are caught
by cancer, the fatal disease!
Your fiance may leave you,
you are afraid!
Which one is more important
to you, to fight back to
life or love which you
suspect to be gone with
the wind of disease?
No, no Angelika, fight
to come back to a new
life where love stays
for love, hope waits
for hope, where nothing
is fake, false, full of fear!

Poem of the Day

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
