This poem is inspired by Julian Cheung when he was asked to write a love letter to his wife Anita Yuen during a television show in Mainland China. Touched as I was when I first encountered Cheung’s words, inspired I became to write a love letter myself. Despite the fact that I do not have my Anita Yuen on the receiving end yet, I still strive to express my current state of mind when it comes to love.
I was so touched by his words and my translation does not do him justice, but I sincerely hope that those of you who cannot read or understand Chinese can feel his genuine love toward Anita Yuen through my humble translation.
