A Chinese article that can make a stone cry – 永失我爱 (7)

Posted by Grace Feng on February 12, 2012

This article was first posted on a Chinese forum 网易(wǎng yì) by writer “春儿(chūn r)” some years ago. It was so touching and well written that people started to share it across the web.

The original article is about 10824 character long. I’ll post them in a series of posts with pinyin annotation and my own English translation. An online radio recording by 晓风(xiǎo fēng) from www.1ting.com is also placed at the beginning of each post. Please be aware that the recording has slight changes in wording here and there compared to the original article. The recording has been split into smaller parts to align with the length of each post.

Feel free to drop your comments along your reading. If you have questions, I’ll try my best to respond within 24 hours.

永失我爱 (7)

My Love Lost Forever

 

chūn r

春儿

 

nà yī kè wǒ wèn wǒ zìjǐ: háiyǒu shénme bù mǎnzú de ne?

那一刻我问我自己:还有什么不满足的呢?

At that moment I asked myself: what else I still need?

 

wǒ yǒu yī gè ài wǒ de zhàngfu hé kě’ài de érzi。 wǒ shì duōme de xìngfú。

我有一个爱我的丈夫和可爱的儿子。我是多么的幸福。

I have a husband that loves me and a lovely son. How happily satisfied I was.

 

wǒ bìxū jìzhu zhè yī kè de gǎnjué。 wǒ yào liúzhù zhèzhǒng xìngfú de gǎnjué。 jiéguǒ, wǒ zhēn de jìzhu le。( zhídàoxiànzài)

我必须记住这一刻的感觉。我要留住这种幸福的感觉。结果,我真的记住了。(直到现在)

I had to remember the exact feeling I had at that moment. I had to keep that feeling of happiness. Actually I did. (Even till now)

 

érqiě wǒ yě zhēnzhèng de shēnkè de tǐhuì dàoliǎo shénme jiào xìngfú!

而且我也真正的深刻的体会到了什么叫幸福!

Moreover I did thoroughly experienced the deep feeling of being happy!

 

那是一种真真切切的,扎扎实实的幸福。

That was real and solid happiness.

 

nàshi yīzhǒng zhēnzhēn qièqiè de, zhāzhashíshí de xìngfú。

那一年我二十五岁,我儿子刚刚到一岁。

That year I was 25 years old, and my son was just one year old.

 

快乐的我啊,丝毫没有查觉到灾难就藏在我幸福的背后。

As happy as I was, I even didn’t catch the slightest hint of incoming disaster that was just hiding behind my happiness.

 

kuàilè de wǒ ā, sīháo méiyǒu chá jué dào zāinàn jiù cáng zài wǒ xìngfú de bèihòu。

它总是在你不经意的时刻来临。而且离我体验幸福只有短短三个月的时间。

It used to attack you at a time when you were totally unaware. And the time it came was only three months far from the moment I experienced the ultimate happiness.

 

zài tā yī suì sān gè yuè de yī tiān yèli, tā tūrán de kū nào qǐlai.

在他一岁三个月的一天夜里,他突然的哭闹起来.

It was on a night when he was one year and three months old, he cried out all of a sudden.

 

wǒ hé àiren yīzhí hǒng zhe tā, dàn tā réng bùtíng de kū, zhídào tā kū lèi le, cái shuì qù.

我和爱人一直哄着他,但他仍不停的哭,直到他哭累了,才睡去.

My lover and I comforted him, but he kept crying until he tired himself out and felt into sleep.

 

dì’èrtiān, tā zhēngkāi yǎnjing de shíhou, tā de zuǒ yǎnhóng hóng de, wǒ bào tā qù yīyuàn jiǎnchá, yīshēng zhǐ

第二天,他睁开眼睛的时候,他的左眼红红的,我抱他去医院检查,医生只

shì gàosu wǒ, diǎndiǎn xiāoyán yàoshuǐ yào jiù hǎole。

是告诉我,点点消炎药水要就好了。

The next day, when he opened his eyes, his left eye was red. I took him to the hospital for a check-up. Doctor said it would bet better if treated with eye drop.

 

yúshì, wǒ gěi háizi ànshí diǎn yào。 dàn hóng háishi méiyǒu xiāo。

于是,我给孩子按时点药。但红还是没有消。

I applied eye drop to his eyes around the clock as instructed, but the redness didn’t disappear.

 

kuài yī gè xīngqī le, wǒ yòu dài háizi qù chá。

快一个星期了,我又带孩子去查。

Almost one week passed by, I took my child to the doctor’s for another checkup.

 

zhè cì de dàifu hǎoxiàng hěn jǐnzhāng de yàngzi。 zǐxì de chá le yòu chá。 zuìhòu gàosu wǒ, háizi de zuǒ yǎn

这次的大夫好象很紧张的样子。仔细的查了又查。最后告诉我,孩子的左眼

shī míngliǎo。 érqiě, pà háiyǒu biéde máobìng。

失明了。而且,怕还有别的毛病。

This time the doctor looked very worried. He checked and checked, at last he told me, my child’s left eye has gone blind. Moreover, my child was likely to have other problems.
