Kim Dae Myung (김대명)
"In front of the the Post Office in Autumn (가을 우체국 앞에서)"



English Translation:

I was waiting for you in front of the post office at fall
The yellow gingko tree leaves were flying in the wind
I was looking at the people passing by and getting farther away

All the beautiful things in the world
How long will they last?
Even when a sun shower falls in the middle of summer
The flowers stand strong
Even when the snow fell last winter
The trees stood strong
Will everything under the sky
Be able to stand alone?

I was waiting for you in front of the post office at fall
I fell into some coincidental thoughts and didn’t know that a full day had passed
