【詩】世界上最遠的距離

世界上最遙遠的距離
不是生與死之間的距離
而是當我站在你面前
你卻不知道我愛你

世界上最遙遠的距離
不是我站在你面前
你不知道我愛你
而是明知彼此相愛
卻不能在一起

世界上最遙遠的距離
不是彼此相愛卻不能在一起
而是明明不能停止思念
卻裝作毫不在意對方

世界上最遙遠的距離
不是裝作毫不在意對方
而是用冷漠的心
為愛你的人
挖掘一條無法穿越的河流

英文原作:

“The Furthest Distance In The World”


The furthest distance in the world
Is not between life and death
But when I stand in front of you
Yet you don’t know that I love you

The furthest distance in the world
Is not when I stand in front of you
Yet you can’t see my love
But when undoubtedly knowing the love from both
Yet cannot be together

The furthest distance in the world
Is not being apart while being in love
But when plainly cannot resist the yearning
Yet pretending you have never been in my heart

The furthest distance in the world
is not pretending you have never been in my heart
But using one’s indifferent heart
To dig an uncrossable river
For the one who loves you
