Lub Paj Tawg Paj (Hmong) derived from “Blossom” by Douglas Gilbert

Kuv xa kuv tus hluas nkauj ib lub paj.
Nws zoo nkaus li tias kuv txoj kev hlub yuav nkag mus rau hauv cov nroj tsuag.
Kuv xav tias:

Thaum twg nws yog paj tawg paj?
Nws yuav xav tias kuv zoo nkauj heev

Tsis hais tias kuv zoo nraug, tab sis
Kuv muaj ib qho essence
Kuv tuaj yeem qhia nws.

Kuv xav tias kuv yog ib qho tsis zoo.
Tej zaum kuj nce mentsis coj txawv txawv, tab sis

Thaum kuv sawv ntawm ib theem
Kuv hnov ​​kuv tus ntxhais npuaj teg.
Nws yog louder dua cov neeg phem.

Txawm hais tias lub suab nrov nrov hauv hmo qws
Kuv yuav nyob, vim
Kuv yuav paub qhov luag nyav ntawm tus hluas nkauj.
Yog li kuv yuav luag nyav thiab xav tias:

Yog, Kuv paub ib tug neeg
Leej twg yuav hlub kuv mus ib txhis.

Hloov kuv cov paj huam rau cov neeg tuaj saib yog ib qho yooj yim
thaum kuv yuav paub tus luag tus hluas nkauj.
Ntau li ntawd
Kuv yuav txawm nyiam kev ntxub ntawm cov neeg tuaj saib.
Txawm li cas los, kuv tus hluas nkauj yog ib lub paj.

The Flowers Bloom

I send my girlfriend a flower.
It seems that my love will enter into the plant.
I think:

When is it flowering?
It will feel so beautiful

Not that I’m handsome, but
I have an essence
I can tell her.

I thought I was bad.
Sometimes a bit strange, but

While I stand at a level
I hear my girl clap.
It is more louder than bad people.

Although the noise in the night club
I will stay, because
I will know the smile of the girl.
So I’m almost crazy and think:

Yes, I know someone
Who will love me forever.

Changing my poem to the audience is easy
when I will know the smile girl.
So much
I would even love hatred of the audience.
However, my girlfriend is a flower.
