Family poem









In a dreamlit night, I looked at a star

Like a bird without a flock.

I do not want to call solitude

What it is,

Because there are other flockless birds

Somewhere in the distance.

Yes, my friend,

We do not have to see each other

To know each other,

Because you cannot see solitude,

Yet you still know it;

When solitude wants you,

Look upon a star

And you will know that you are not alone,

Because many a gaze is friendly with the star;

When you pass a flower,

Know that it is your friend too,

Because you did not thread upon it.


When you see a bird in a cage,

Let it loose,

Because it sings its most beautiful song

When it's free;

Yes, my friend,

Friendship is like freedom,

Boundless and limitless,

Like space in human thoughts;


When a raindrop falls on your palm,

Know that it fell on the palms on many

Like a young friend;

When sorrow comes knocking at your door,

Speaking of the world's injustice,

Know that you are not alone,

Because my heart beats

Just like yours;


When the wind whispers to you

About its thousand years of wandering

And loneliness,

Know that you are not alone,

Because it whispers to me too.


Yes, my distant friend,

Solitude is not ugly

If it isn't forced upon you,

Just like friendship

Isn't friendship

If it is forced upon you.

Wonderful is the friendship

Linked by spontaneity

Like a bird's link to freedom;

Wonderful is the friendship

Linked by space

And nature;

Yes, my distant friend,

We do not have to see each other

To know each other,

Because if we do not meet during our lives,

Our souls will doubtlessly

Meet in the white heavenly fields.
