I STILL LOVE ONLY YOU

From Paris where I exile
I send you my kisses wet with Seine’s sweet water
I send you my white nights from this Light Capital
I send you the Sunrise with Hope and Belief from now and here
I send you the Sunset with Sorrow and Angry from now and here
I send you the Rainbow of refound eternal Peace of France-Vietnam
I send you my last photo completely different from the first
With Time I have changed a lot of you know .. ..
I am going down the hill now .. ..

Under the troubled sweet water of Seine’s bridges
Under white nights from this Light Capital
Under the Sunrise and the Sunset and the Rainbow
Nothing seems changing with Time
But under my deep heart
Myself I still love only you
Under my deep hot body
Myself I still love only you

You drive downtown in Oakland this evening
Winds kiss mine: your beautiful face
You take a barefoot walk on the Bay Area beach on Sunday morning
Sands kiss mine: your small foot fingers
You are on the Golden Gate
Do you see me not far from Tower Eiffel ?
I always dream of California where you live
You often dream of Paris where your old lover exiles

Myself I still love only you
Myself I still love only you

I still breath the Silicon Valley’s air
I still breath the Little Saigon’s
I still breath Oakland’s
I wait only one word from you
I wait only you to say only that word
« Come back my dear »
«  I do return immediately »
But you know that Moral is like the Vietnam Memory Wall in Washington
Solennal in between our two hearts
Your family and mine …
So I always keep your book dedicated me all nights
Like an absolute faithful with his Bible or Coran
So I always keep your book dedicated me before Saigon Fall all nights
To heat my souvenirs to brainstorm my thoughts of you
Hands in hands on that beautiful book of these university days
My son doesn’t understand that forever at all one day he sees me .. ..
Skin against skin on that beautiful book of these university days
So I always keep your book dedicated me all nights
And I listen to your voice and Exodus film music .. ..

Under the troubled sweet water of the Seine
Under white nights from this Light Capital
Under the Sunrise and the Sunset and the Rainbow
I still breath the Silicon Valley’s air
I still breath the Little Saigon’s
I still breath Oakland’s
Nothing seems changing with Time
But under my deep heart
Myself I still love only you
Under my deep hot body
Myself I still love only you
Myself I still love only you
Myself I still love only you
Myself I still love only you
Myself I still love only you
