那一天 我闭目在经殿香雾中 蓦然听见你颂经中的真言

Once for a whole day

in a temple with burning incense I meditated

suddenly I seemed to hear

the resonance of your recitation in my ear


那一夜 我听了一宿梵唱 不为参悟 只为寻你的一丝气息

Once for a whole eve

I listened to the soulful chant in relief

not for enlightment in quest

but to feel your living breath


那一月 我摇动所有的转经筒 不为超度 只为触摸你的指尖

Once for a whole month

I turned all prayer wheels in earnest

not for repenting sins

but to touch your fingerprins


那一年 我磕长头匍匐在山路 不为觐见 只为贴着你的温暖

Once for a whole year

on all fours to dust I came near

not for worshipping gods

but to feel your warmth in love


那一世 我转山转水转佛塔 不为修来生 只为途中与你相见

Once for a whole life

I journeyed through ten thousand spries

not for rebirth to complete

but to meet you in destiny


那一瞬 我飞升成仙 不为长生 只为佑你喜乐平安

Once in a split second

I may ascend as a spirit

not for eternity

but to bless with joy and security
