Homesick

乡愁

 

When I was a child,

my homesickness was a small stamp,

linking Mum at the other end and me this.

 

When I've grown up,

I remained homesick,

but it became a ticket by which I sailed to and from my bride at the other end.

 

Then homesickness took the shape of a grave,

Mum inside of it and me outside.

 

Now I'm still homesick,

but it is a narrow strait,

separating me on this side and the mainland on the other.

 

小时候,

乡愁是一枚小小的邮票,

我在这头,

母亲在那头。

 

长大后,

多愁是一张窄窄的船票,

我在这头,

新娘在那头。

 

后来呀,

乡愁是一方矮矮的坟墓,

我在外头,

母亲在里头。

 

而现在,

乡愁是一弯浅浅的海峡,

我在这头,

大陆在那头。
