Infatuation

Daiyu: I can’t let go now.
Baoyu: I know.
D: Will we see each other again?
B: We have to separate in order to see each other again.
D: And once we see each other again, will we separate again?
B: Yes, we will.
D: But if we can see each other, why do we have to separate?
B: Because… because that’s the only way I can miss you.

The dream has not ended,
there are still crickets in the depth of winter,
the storm at night is calling for raindrops.
The dream has not ended,
still hoping for the swallows to return home.
One can be so infatuated, unafraid of change.

The dream has not ended,
these tears still taste sweet,
unafraid of separation, from a promise made ear-side.
The dream has not ended,
if destiny has not changed,
you can still drag paranoia by its feet.

In fact the dream of you and me has been long over,
there’s no point to try again.
Rather have the world praise the wilted flower,
it takes courage to dare to let go.

The dream has not ended,
the hate has yet to be filled,
your care is like debt, it burdens and it accumulates.
The dream has not ended,
the more you pay, the more you owe,
like the 12 Beauties in the Dream of Red Chamber,
never to be seen again.

The dream is too good to be true…

In fact, the dream of you and me has been long over,
there’s no point to try again.
Rather have the world praise the wilted flower
I once planted for you.
In fact, the dream of you and me has been long over,
there’s no use to linger.
Rather have the world praise the loveliest face-
Let go because of love…

The dream has not ended,
the wish has not been fulfilled.
Carefully planned, yet happiness is short-lived-
who can be so infatuated, to be unafraid of change?

Within this sea of white,
let this infatuation wash off the hate.
If we’re not allowed to be in this life,
later, we’ll meet among the skies.

D: Am I the only one in your heart?
B: No… you are my heart.
D: Waiting… does it hurt?
B: A little.
