因为,一个平淡的词语,常包藏着无数寒夜里的心悸。我想,能够悲伤也是一种权利。往事如烟,往事又并不如烟。

-------摘录自《往事并不如烟》作者自序

先贴上,晚上不能写中文时再试译。哪位朋友愿意先试试?

my try

A plain word often is entailed with innumerable cold nights' fears.  I think feeling sad is also a right. The past is like smoke. The past is not like smoke.

try

A word may be ordinary to others, but to me it may contain  trembles in uncountable cold nights. It seems to me that being able to feel sad is also a right. Past stories are like smoke, meanwhile, they aren't like smoke at all.

A word, plain as it may be, often speaks a cringing heart on many a cold, endless night. Methinks, the past is elusive; methinks, the past is intrusive.
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?

I think "privilege" is better than "right" in this context.

a few adjustments

A word, plain as it maybe, of speaks of a cringing heart on many a cold, endless night. I think, even the chance to feel sorrow is a privilege. To me the past is forgettable, and yet also unforgettable.

Is "Ru Yan", similar to  forgettable?
