Drained fragrance never lingers

You leave or stay, I don’t know,
But I want to cater for any of your needs
You have mentioned before me.

You said you wanted a bar of chocolates,
Which smell good and taste delicious,
And I ran to the shop and bought the brand you spoke of.
You looked glittering taking the chocolates,
I smiled looking at your face.

You bought a wind-breaker and wore it for me, 
Saying it was the most beautiful style you had tried.
I looked at it and stupidly not spoke highly of the jewelry you were showing,
You stopped smiling,
And left with a disappointed look.

My friend gave me a packet of fragrant tea,
Which I loved so much and I left it in your palm,
Saying no words but giving a short smile.
You became heartily pleased,
And smiled to me with your best wish.

You left me for a faraway land,
Which I thought might be the threshold between us,
But you said it was a wonderland from where you could soar to the sky.
I cried the night before,
And I handed you the words of my heart when you set off. 

Each time we chatted on the phone,
My heart beat quickly like drumming with joy,
You talked like a fairy, making me laugh and dream.
I was in the pool of sweetness,
And I found my life was full of love.

I found you had a beautiful umbrella which you used to use,
My heart beat faster wishing to buy a better one for you,
And you jokingly said no and refused.
I bought one on the recommendation of a beautiful colleague,
You said it wasn’t nice and I was sad with a sigh.

The dream has awaken up as the colorful years have passed.
I still wish to buy you something you need,
But the drained fragrance will never linger.

    I was in Zhejiang when I saw a street opera like this. It was very interesting to see a Chinese opera on the street for free. There was a pretty big crowd there, but I could still see the play. It was days like this that made the Chinese culture so interesting to me. Unfortunately I didn't get to share it with anyone, this was before I used Wechat. I liked how you could enjoy special treats for only 1 or 2 yuan, and even gamble a little bit.
