Along the beach , I wandered alone ,
I wandered , wandered beyond the reef .
Until late at night when folks have gone,
Only the sea gulls sing with grief !
Soon the sun casts its last ray of light ,
Beyond the horizon , it slowly sinks ,
Then the evening is changed to twilight ,
The birds fly low & sweetly sing .
Now the moon from above the tree peeps ,
Decorating the blue night sky above ,
The willow trees blown by the wind weep ,
They sing, " To-night will I see my love ?"
In the moonlight , the cool clear sea water,
Splashed to the shore without rest,
Changing sorrow into laughter ,
Great mother nature at its best.
A wanderer I am , this part of the shore ,
Day and night are just the same,
If only I could see you just once more,
I am a wanderer without any aim !
What we have left is just memory ,
We won't see each otherfor quite a while ,
Even if the sea and the waves sing its melody,
We have parted with a smile !
