Lyrics & Verse  

 


Happiness Like Clouds Wandering...

Original Song: Hạnh Phc Lang Thang, published: 1980s

Author: Trần Ngọc Sơn

Translated by VuongThanh

 


Those days she were like the lotus flower

Symbolizing gentleness when the evening arrives

Those days she were like the pure dew,

resting on a rose, sparkling on silk petals...


Those days she were like a music melody

Making people wonder, and me to daydream

I reminisce about quiet street nights,

with our fingers intertwined,

we promise each other a beautiful life together...


But the months and years coldly passed by...

A person's heart can become uncaring!

Then, withered dream replaces the color of Hope

My Love had left the dream harbor

She crossed the river and marry another

The currents of Life keep flowing...


Lonely nights, rain drizzling

On a street of yesteryear

One person trying to forget.

Lonely footsteps...

The night wind blows chilliness

Feeling cold inside

Tears falling onto dry lips...


Those days, I love her passionately

I never thought about us parting

But Love's not beautiful like Poetry

We were together like one breath,

But then had gone onto separate paths...


Happiness's like clouds wandering...

Till the soul grows thin in this life

Every night passed by... with a dream.

Dream that she will return...

 



Ngy ấy em như hoa sen,

Mang nhiều dng hiền mỗi khi chiều ln,

Ngy ấy em như sương trong,

Np trn bng hồng, mượt trn cnh nhung.
Ngy ấy em như cung tơ,

Cho đời thẫn thờ, cho ti dệt mơ

Đường khuya tay đan ngn tay,

Hứa cho đời ước mơ di.


Nhưng năm thng v tnh,

M lng người cũng v tnh,

Rồi mộng a thay mu xanh.

Người yu xa bến mộng,

Đ xưa đ qua sng,

Dng đời tri mnh mng.

Dng xưa nay xa rồi,

Đường khuya mưa rơi rơi,

Phố xưa qun một người,

Bn chn gieo đơn ci,

Gi mang theo cơn lạnh,

Về rt lệ trn mi.


Ngy ấy yu em say m,

Ti no nghĩ g đến cu từ ly.

Tnh i khng xanh như thơ,

Đến chung hơi thở, rồi tri rất xa.


Hạnh phc lang thang như my,

Cho hồn ho gầy, khi ta cn đy.

Từng đm qua trong giấc mơ,

Vẫn mong chờ c em về.
