What a lovely family

Just a winter working night,
Away from the city, away from the light
For sixty years, working here alone
Beard grows long,
hair grows white
Never seen a person walk by

Today is different
In midnight forest
A family come
the blink of daughter
the sweetie sweat
Father holds tight
Mother puts a towel on her face
before she says

what a lovely family?
How I wish I have one too
Considerate wife and cute daughter
Like this
spend all my money
Buy silk for the girl
Little red blossom on the white

*

sweetie don’t go too far
there are more dangers than you thought
I don’t want to be traded
outside is no safe
but staying here is like a slave

wore my favorite plain white dress
at midnight, secretly opened the gate
slowly, quietly
ran through the city, ran through the crowd

I am not afraid of getting lost
Cause a couple save me from the frost
go deep into the forest
My lover is waiting there
One step, two steps
what a lovely couple?

I thought.
