Written by and translated from Korean by Ihlwha Choi
LONELINESS Like a breeze, I tread softly. Sitting in the spring sun, gazing at the green mountain valley, Life is truly a lonely thing. Even with yesterday's memories and tomorrow's hopes, Even with friends coming and going, amidst the daily bustles, Living is truly a lonely thing. All day today, I've been thinking of you. Is my life lonely because I miss you? Is this spring day lonely because you're there? Like a breeze, I walk aimlessly. Sitting in the grassy field, gazing at the lake's waves, Even this blossoming season is lonely like this.
