Yesterday

我在报纸上看见一家店要关门的时候,急急的去GOOGLE了你的名字,然后松了一口气–原来不是你啊。
不过这次是我错了,是你,真的是你要关门了。
Ann Arbor这地方,说起感情最深的宝贝,就数你和Shaman Drum,这下好了,你们都倒了。
怎么这么故意。
 
In December, When I read the News on Michigan Daily, saying the "Father and Mother’s Shop on East Liberty St. is going to close by the end of Februrary", I immidiately google-mapped you, and found your name to be "John Leidy". I was relieved that it wasn’t you, but I was wrong.
 
周一我去,听说你周末就走了。环顾四周,也不晓得该买点什么好。挑了几张卡,我在你这里看中的第一样就是卡,你大概不知道,那是三年前了,是我第一次来Ann Arbor的时候。你总是很安静,又温暖,弄得我每次从冷风里一头栽进去的时候,都有点不知所措。店里的老太太,慢条斯理的,带着老花眼镜冲我微笑。她们包装出来的礼品,都像是家里的一样,有亲情的味道。
我逛了一遍又一遍,还要赶着去看电影,实在不知道挑点什么好。
然后我就听见了它。
Beatles– <Yesterday>的八音盒。这大概就是缘分吧,就当作你在向我告别。
我买下它了,以后每一次,当它缓缓的唱出Yesterday的时候,我都会想起你。
 
The first time I found you was in February 2007, almost the same time three years ago, when I was an exchange student from China, staying here for merely one month. One year later, I transferred to Michigan, and I visited you the first week I arrived. You always have plenty of pretty little stuff that I LOVE, and it felt warm whenever I am with you.The ladies in the shop smiled at me everytime I entered, and they wrapped my little things with great patience and love.
 
 
 
周三我又去看电影,望了你一眼,周四我去T.K. Wu 吃饭,又从你身边经过。
今天周五,我去见你最后一面。
你看看你,这萧条的样子,真让我伤心。
It’s heart-breaking to see you leave, it seems that all the old things are gradually going out of my life, and I cannot stop it.
 
But inside, it is still as warm as before.
 

 
The last two pieces of art work I got from you.
                   
 
而Shaman Drum…只剩背影.
Shaman Drum has gone too…
 
喜欢你的人,都写了卡,被老太们放在靠街的橱窗下.在有新主人之前,希望他们都会在那里.
你们都会消失吗?
他们可以走的慢一点吗?
 
Before I left, I told those ladies there that I am blogging about you and they gave their email address to me, saying they also would like to have a look. Hope that they can see this too.
 
Thank you and I will miss you.
