That night, I listened to the hymns till dawn, not for serenity, but to seek a sliver of your soul;
That month, I flipped through all the scriptures, not for enlightenment, but to touch the pages where your fingers once lingered;
That year, I knelt on the grounds, my head embracing the dusts, not to pay obeisance to the Gods, but to feel the warmth you left behind;
That life, I wandered through ten thousand great mountains, not in search for an afterlife, but to cross paths with you –
Gao Fei, do you believe that I lived through this night, this day, this year, and this lifetime, only to hold your hand and accompany you in this journey of life?
