I Have Not Forgotten - Poem by Wade Blade
We agreed to forget each other.
But I deceived you, I have never forgotten.
I don't think you've forgotten either.
We're just deceiving each other,
hiding our misery.
I haven't deceived you deliberately, though;
I did my best to carry out our agreement.
I often stay far away from Beijing,
hoping time and distance will help me to forget you.
But on my return, as the train pulls into the station,
my head reels.
I stand on the platform looking around intently,
as if someone were waiting for me.
Of course there is not one.
I realize then that I have forgotten nothing.
Everything is unchanged.
My love is like a tree the roots of which strike deeper your after year
I have no way to uproot it.
At the end of every day,
I feel as if I've forgotten something important.
I may wake with a start from my dreams wondering what had happened.
Then it comes home to me that you are missing!
So everything seems lacking, incomplete, and there is nothing to fill up the blank.
We are nearing the ends of our lives,
why should we be carried away by emotion like children?
Why should life submit people to such ordeals,
then unfold before you your lifelong dream?
Because I started off blindly,
I took the wrong turning,
and now there are insuperable obstacles between me and my dream.
