saṃsāra

queen of my dreams   oh mistress of my soul
I recall that it was north of Tây Sơn
where I met you that first time
like the great Quang Trung  I possess
a sword of wonder and of zeal
my companions in arms are these
my three hundred kisses for you
bearing this  my tireless rapier
ready am I to protect you
from our enemies   circumstance and time
sweet mistress of my dreams   queen of my soul
