Although you are not more beautiful than roses,
You are more fragrant than them.
Although you are not lighter than stars
You are warmer than them.
You give me love.
You give me a life.
You give me everything.
I rebirth after I met you.
You are my life.

Fragrant leaf, tenter shoot
Moistening, refreshing, relaxing
Tea is healthful

Dark dismal
Depressing, suffering, sorrowing
A thing that intoxicates me

Tatoo in my mind

You are a tattoo in my mind,
Even though I try to erase you from my mind,
I can't, I can't, I can't...

You are already everything in my mind
Even though I sleep to forget you,
I can't, I can't, I can't...

I am so afraid...
Even though i meet other love,
If I cannot forget you...
And live in you...

You are a deep tattoo in my mind
Even though I try to wipe out in my mind,
I cannot, I cannot, I cannot...

I Love You

You are the woman I love deeply,
You have the most beautiful lips,
You have the most touching eyes,
You make me feel happiness,
I am the man you love deeply,
My love is absolutely eternal,
Everthing is worth to do for you,
Because I love you.

Poem about SIU at Carbondale

When I came to here for the first time,
I felt very Carbondale.
What kind of place is Carbondale for me?

Even though, it is so countryside,
it takes about 2 hours to go to downtown, St. Louis
it is not convenient to go to wal-mart on foot,
I cannot live without bicycle,
not much place to have fun,
food at the cafeteria is terrible,
I feel scary when I walk in front of the Morris library at mid-night,

But,I like SIU at Carbondale
That is because…

I can see many stars,
There is beautiful and wonderful campus lake,
It is full of nature,
Great environments to study,
people are so nice and friendly,
teachers give me a plenty of homework,
there are many fans of Cardinals,
mascot of SIU is lovely SALUKI,
there is not such an excited things except SALUKI football.
I decided to do my best to realize my dream in Carbondale.

All the seasons
And all the days
All the reasons
Why I've felt the way
So long
So long
Then lost all thing
I look in your eyes
I feel emotion
And hard cried
For me
I can feel
What touch me deeper
Tears falling from eyes?
Only cry?
Touch you deeper
Than tears falling from eyes
Know why?
A lifetime
Tears on your cheek
the answers
My body was getting weak
For you
The truth
