The last glow of hope is also smoldered down
Now we are already in two different distant horizons
The shocking reality embraced my cold body
In the depths of the heart spreads a strange calmness
Love, sacrifice and friendship
Do they mean empty words?
The heavy iron bars in front of me
Not even sympathizing
Outside the walls laughter of the enemies
A tender word, an affectionate glance and a soft touch
So far away, not even in the last hope.
The southern wind is wet with the tears of a poor woman
The iron will nearby keep a meaningful silence
Again in the thoughts slowly fades away
A simple but subtle face, dreaming but thoughtful eyes
My love, l bid you farewell with too heavy a heart
But my burning soul cherishes a hopeless hope
Shall we meet again?
