Tuna Czeniewska - 2021 (English Version)


2021 (English Version)

Wind blows
In the snow-covered night
Million houses' candles
warm up the cold air
Time goes
Memories flood in
Were they short reunions
or forever apart
Last New Year's Eve
Same way we hoped for
more surprises, better future
before the window lattice
When the sun rises
another year it will be
dry up the tears and look beyond
still we hold on to faith
thanked 18 times

Submitter's comments:

This is the English version of my Chinese poem 2021, but not a literal translation. The elements in the former poem were reconstructed and there were a few changes in the meaning. However, I tried hard to make the number of syllables in each line almost the same as the Chinese poem. A friend of mine is working on adapting this poem to a song so that both versions can be sung with the same melody.

Both Chinese and English versions are sung in the video. Thanks to my friend Wennie for composing and performing.
