After 40

July 29, 2015

The pains of the past days/The suffering your heart/The preciousness of people close to you/You’ll understand when you are over 40.

The fragrance of wildflowers/ The pain of love/The happiness of your children/You will appreciate when you are over 40.

The pen that doesn’t write the truth,/The missteps you take in life,/The pain that fills your heart,/ You’ll understand when you are over 40.

The hearts that yearn for you/ Generous and heaven-like hands/ The roads that you’ve walked on without a trace/ You’ll understand when you are over 40.

The suffering you’ve caused for your lover/ Fair and unfair judgements you’ve made/ True and false friends/ You’ll understand when you are over 40.

So when the good people leave you/ You sing a dirge/ Your heart will be torn/ The precious value of your parents/ The love of the people in your homeland/ You’ll understand when you are over 40.

Oh my heart, please have mercy on me, this naive man / You really have to cherish your mother/ This you’ll understand when you are over 40/ You must treasure your father / This you’ll understand when you are over 40.
