Hill of Longing

Do you remember the song we used to sing together
Sitting across each other?
Do you miss that season that we used to walk
Side by side, matching each other’s steps?

How your silver laughter turned into a song that rode the wind
And whispered to me by my ear
And how the balmy scents dancing in the bashful moonlight
Couldn’t help but rest in your arms, that night

Are you listening, my love?
Does the longing overwhelm you?

The stars that hung from the sky one silent night…
They were yours and mine
And the wild flower petals that rested briefly
On your tiny hands before flying away…

Do you remember the song we used to sing together
Sitting across each other?
Do you miss that season where we used to walk
Side by side, matching each other’s steps?

It’s a story from a picture taken one fine day
When I walked with you, hand in hand
Before I know it, I’m looking across the hill of memories
Smiling a quiet smile

Across the hill of longing
I chant
The song that belongs to us
And your name

Are you listening, my love?
Does the longing overwhelm you?

 

T/N: Don’t forget to check out the female counterpart of this song – The Photograph in My Heart/내 마음의 사진 (Crash Landing on You OST Part 6). It follows a really similar melody, though with different words, and I like to read it as her answer to the inquiries across the border ❤ ❤
