Helpless…

When things beyond our control happened, it’s so helpless…
So what if we’ve got the whole world? Yet, there’s nothing we can do.
No matter how desperate we are…

And only at times like that, we will then know who we actually needed…
To have them be by our side, taking care of us.

To love,
and Be loved.

It’s such a complicated equation.

罗大佑的这首歌,用的是徐志摩的一首诗.

当我死去的时候 亲爱 你别为我唱悲伤的歌
我坟上不必安插蔷薇 也无需浓荫的柏树
让盖着我的轻轻的草 淋着雨也沾着露珠
假如你愿意 请记着我
要是你甘心 忘了我
在悠久的坟墓中迷惘
阳光不升起也不消翳
我也许 也许我还记得你
我也许把你忘记

我再见不到地面的青荫
觉不到雨露的甜蜜
我再听不到夜莺的歌喉
在黑夜里倾吐悲啼
在悠久的坟墓中迷惘
阳光不升起也不消翳
我也许 也许我还记得你
我也许把你忘记

诗的名字叫 When I Am Dead, My Dearest

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree;
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt,forget.
I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on as if in pain;
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

  1. life isnt too short it just nvr waits…
    life nvr waits for u to give a call home when outstation, life nvr waits for u to call a friend u havent spoke to for a long time, life nvr waits to clear a misunderstanding between 2 best friends, life nvr waits to end a quarrel between 2 lovers, life nvr waits for yesterday…
    guess e best appreciation to all u loved and those who loves u is to live e life dat is worth living…

  2. Hi..

    this song is so meaningful.. My dad passed away last year.. till now, we still cried whenever we go and pray him.. 🙂

    crying as he missed the things that we are doing right now.. he could not see any happy things that we are doing now.. he didn’t see those unpleasant things and unhappy things.. he won’t have to recall how people ill-treated him when he was at work. those kind of scenes..

    still.. we remember him.

  3. Wow, the poem was really meaningful. Thanks for sharing Dasmond!! 🙂

    And… send my condolences to your dearest godbrother.. 🙂 Take care!!

  4. No matter what happens, life goes on.
    Sounds really useless but that’s just how it truly is.
    Be brave and stay by him.. Take good care of yourself too.

  5. hi rr,

    i saw news abt joshua’s mother. understand how he feels now. tell him to stay cool.

    i was puzzled when i saw there is a clip on xin.sg on joshua going into mortuary n coming out. what is there to film about? i dun tink they shd do tis like those hk paparazzi, so disappointing. especially on such unfortunate events. how come they didnt go malacca and report on xxxxx lee ? i posted a comment on xin.sg forum as below, i tink they shd be reminded not to do tis again, i tink tis is veri bad.

    为什么新动网要报道这则新闻和像似狗仔一样偷拍? 更何况,这样子的不幸事件,相信家人不希望这样被大肆报道吧?真让人摸不着头脑。

  6. i agrees with what u wrote…

    but life too short… dun have the time to wait for that someone to love you…
    so i will love myself more… and love those around me.

    cheer up :O)
