The sunray on doorsteps

His shadow fell on the crumbling brick walls,
the dark shape did not show a face,
longing for memories of the beloved,
the house once filled with people and with love.

The sunray on doorsteps followed
him into the room. The stream of light showed
the dust. He pulled the window curtains wide
and saw him in the mirror, multiplied.

The oak tree looked slim under the sunlight,
with the golden leaves that danced in the air,
flowing with the wind and turning counterclockwise.
The broken handle rake stood lonely by.

He turned around, the family picture
hanging on the wall, looking to the future,
to bring the memories back to his mind.
He swept, tears were running down for awhile.

The house, the soul, the love and the family,
he will make this place a sweet home to be.

Giọt nắng bn thềm

Lng du dừng bước quay về
Cố hương trong mộng đường qu vườn nh
Vch tường loang lổ từ xa
Bng in trn vch sơn đ trc đi

Gi lay rặng liễu r r
Cy tng trơ trụi l th vng kh
Ngập ngừng x cửa bước v
Bn thềm giọt nắng hồ bng ai

Vn tay ko bức mn di
Mặt trời rọi sng hnh hi trong gương
Nhn khung ảnh trn tường
Kỷ niệm vng vấn vương tất lng

Ngoi vườn cy sứ nở bng
Chim khuyn ru rt bập bồng my bay
Nhớ ngy xưa ấy sum vầy
Gia đnh đon tụ đắm say n tnh

Hắn buồn thơ thẩn đứng nhn
Mi m xy mộng nh mnh dấu yu.
