You say lilac is your favourite flower,
Cause you are named after it.
How melancholy the flower is,
How sensitive you are,
As the flower begin to wilt,
As the picture froze.
How tender and lovely the flower is.
Yet she couldn’t keep off the rain and wind.
All your life is fulfilled with hardship,
With so many dreams that beauty has turned into.
Like this, you are gone in a hurry,
Leaving me worried about you the rest of my life.
Look, the lilac flowers, the beauty you yearn for, spread out in front of your graves.
Do you still feel lonely with the flowers all over the mountains and plains?
Listen, someone is singing your favorite song.
You no longer need to worry about anything in this world.
My yard is full of lilac plants,
Covered with lovely purple blossoms;
I'll accompany them here,
And protect them all my life！
