'Leaving Cambridge' by Charlotte Yang



I hope you can return soon.


The noise of the plane came, 

You fled back to your country for asylum, 

I watched the lights flicker,

My eyes are full of tears, 

I hope you can return soon. 


Chemical reagents bubbling, 

You hold tightly, 

I see the research is successful, 

My eyes are full of tears, 

I hope you can return soon. 


Said laughter came from the phone, 

You chat happily, 

I watched happiness fill your face, 

My eyes are full of tears, 

I hope you can return soon. 


You are back, 

you succeeded, 

You are married, 

My eyes are full of tears, 

I hope you can return soon. 


The noise of the plane came, 

You stand under the plane and say goodbye to me,

My eyes are full of tears, 

You said to me, 

I hope you can return soon.
