拉芙墨匙高安


LAMENT

Listen, children:
Your father is dead.
From his old coats
I'll make you little jackets;
I'll make you little trousers
From his old pants.
There'll be in his pockets
Things he used to put there,
Keys and pennies
Covered with tobacco;
Dan shall have the pennies
To save in his bank;
Anne shall have the keys
To make a pretty noise with.

Life must go on,

And the dead be forgotten;

Life must go on,

Though good men die;
Anne, eat your breakfast;
Dan, take your medicine;

Life must go on;

I forget just why.

我們的確不能忘記內心深處的傷痛,但時間可以讓我們慢慢減輕痛楚!這幾天我開始只看一次新聞,我覺得係時候讓生活繼續下去,係時候叫自己打起精神,振作起來!因為要自己過得好才會做得更多更好! Life must go on ........

completely agree! That doesn't mean that we will forget, but we will live stronger and brighter!

雖然我住响荷蘭,但係一睇到電視新聞或網上新聞都認唔住喊.我寄咗錢返香港比家人幫我捐去中國,雖然唔係多,不過都係小小心意!

雖然好痛心,但係大家亦要堅強的向前看,更加珍惜擁有的,尤其是家人!

dear unklebeach,

perhaps u started become 簡而清 cos of some comments of ur weather report, yet, for many of us, it's sth that cheers us up to have a good start of another day.

as what you always mentioned, life must go on (though life is also a bitch...), after days of hard feelings, we shld get back on track. hope you may consider to have your '5月22號早上7時零6分,早晨, 起身返工未呀...' as a meaning start for all audience.

tomorrow is another day
