Lost in the fog of life / I sit and hug a lonely corner of the sky… (Picture: Dinh Truong Chinh)

Then also foam

devoted his life to follow for a hundred years
It turned out to be a rolling cloud
fog at the top of the mountain full of rain
Human life rubs both hands and sighs

whisper with a fade
Once upon a time, the clouds hung on the shoulders
The night is filled with despair
love at the end of the wind cry forever at the beginning of the river

Lying and listening to the floating smoke
The wilderness drifts forever, the wind and storm of people’s fate
joy and laughter with laughter
bring a great path of sadness and emptiness

Fog over the rivers
has long since dried up the flow of water
brooding with the fog of life
I sat hugging a lonely corner of the sky…
