【回味】Reminiscence

想念是什么样的口味
也许像是甘菊的暗香
沾上回甘的甜
带有苦涩尝在舌尖

想念是什么样的滋味
也许像是喉咙的干渴
渴望见你一眼
清爽的笑容当纾解

想念是什么样的气味
也许像是淡淡的香水
在茫茫人海中
依恋着独特汗水味

时间把回忆卷成浪花
若隐若现在岸上呈现
海风之间
吹来一阵咸咸的想念

所以有一种想念
叫作回味


Nostalgia comes in all sorts of flavours, each
distinct of the past it represents. But the memories
are experienced differently from the actual event itself.

Perhaps, memories can be understood as a processed
and refined flavour: all that is left over time, is its essence.

That is why the Chinese called reminiscence “回味”
which translates directly to “returning flavours”.
