好好好 - A poem to my mother [CH]/[EN]

I love you mamma.

我長大想像媽媽
她每次都叫「拉拉」

「你要對自己好好
記得這個最重要」

「不要隨便恨別人
要愛朋友與家人」

「不要隨便亂花錢
不要吃太多泡麵」

「要記得打給爸爸
要記得好好唸書」

「傷心的話要說」
可不要太囉唆」

「我辛苦把你養大
因為我以前害怕
你們會像我一樣
為難吃苦得長大」

「現在你們真“lucky”啊!
你看媽媽的臉就知道
我有呢麼的驕傲
你們的命多美妙。」

所以呢,
我這生命 一定要好好的活
都靠我媽 我才能好好的過
對我們的愛 她給我們太多。

可以一樣的話
我沒別的追求。

When I grow up
I want to be like my mamma.

Everytime, she would say, “Sarya-

You have to treat yourself good
As great as someone smart would,

Do not randomly hate others.
Care for your family and lovers.

Do not waste too much money
Don’t eat instant noodles only.

Remember to call your father
Keep your skills up in order

Be open about sadness
But don’t subject into crassness.

I worked hard to bring you up
Because I used to be afraid
That you would be raised like me,
Struggling and jaded

Now, you guys are so lucky!
Just look at my face to know
How proud I am that
Your lives are blessed.”

For this reason,
I will live this life to the fullest it can be.
For my mother,
I will live it properly
For the amount of love she gives us
Is ridiculous…

And if I could do the same,
It’d be sufficient.
