Farewell, my dear, may you walk alone down the dawn paths of this age, encounter the freedom

of love and death, into the icy river winds, without even a tomb, into the fierce blizzards,

without even a song, may you go flowing, flowing like a petal.

Your tears will soon become a stream, and your love will soon become a song,

so farewell now, little bird of tears, flying with mountains held in your beak;

fly on, my dear, and do not look back.

- excerpt from A Letter Not Sent
