May Or Mayn'T - Poem by Lionel Woo

May I get back to the date,
After which I was no longer a maid?
At that moment his only kiss changed my fate.

May the tale in this summer continue forever?
We have gone too far from the play yard’s border.

I can draw a round and close myself in the surround,
And keep all the memories out.
I try but no matter how,
Fail to stop his hovering me above,
And can’t forget his kindness and caprice anyhow.

I can fill a circle into a perfect period.
Give the blue-sky back to him as his free world.
But I can’t stop to recall,
All the sweet scenes before.
If I give up all,
What on earth is my soul?

May I rehearse smiling when heartbroken,
And keeping tears from pelleting?
Till he is gone can my teardrops form.
May I just disappear into the horizon,
At the moment of losing flying,
No matter how I cry, I calm, or how windy even.

I can draw a round and close myself in the surround,
And keep all the memories out.
I try but no matter how,
Fail to stop his hovering me above,
And can’t forget his kindness and caprice anyhow.

I can fill a circle into a perfect period.
Give the blue sky back to him as his free world.
But I can’t stop to recall,
All the sweet scenes before.
If I give up all,
What on earth is my soul?
Thus I always keep the broken heart carefully hold.
