Nostalgia

Nostalgia
Guangzhong Yu
When I was young,
Nostalgia was a tiny, tiny stamp,
I am on this side,
Mother on the other side.

  When I grew up,
Nostalgia was a narrow boat ticket,
I am on this side,
Bride on the other side.

  But later on,
Nostalgia was a lowly grave,
I am in the outside,
Mother on the inside.

  But now,
Nostalgia becomes a shallow strait,
I am on this side,
Mainland on the other side.
