Nothing Made Me Happier than Finding These Objects

一只短袜 一只金耳环 一辆玩具火车的黄色汽笛 星迁月移 它们被遗忘在尘埃的角落 仿佛必须被遗忘 才能被唤起 幸福是突然找回这样一些东西! 现在你有了 一双袜子 一对金耳环 一辆奔跑歌唱的玩具火车 一颗 为你跳动的心


a missing sock a lost golden earring a yellow whistle on a rewinding toy train Taken by time they collected dust in the corner, needed to be lost in order to be found. now you have a pair of socks a pair of golden earrings a moving train with melody A HEART still beating for you.
