Dear I, Don’t Despair

Whenever you feel hopeless, just put on Trinh Cong Son’s “Toi Oi Dung Tuyet Vong.” It will uplift your spirit. With Duy Cuong’s soothing orchestration, Nguyen Khang gives a soulful presentation.

(English translation by Van Mai)

Don’t despair, dear I, don’t despair
Autumn leaves fall amidst winter time
Don’t despair, beloved, don’t despair
You are I and I am you

The kite soars, but the soul stays empty
The kite dives, sinking the void into grief
Who am I who still conceal my tears?
Who am I who still am too human?
Who am I, am I, am I…
Who so love life

Don’t despair, dear I, don’t despair
Gold sunshine fades like pieces of my soul
Don’t despair, beloved, don’t despair
Be ingenious and you’ll be the sunrise
Here, an endless road under a solitary sunset
Here, a soul in which sorrow rises.
