I am a snowflake,
glittering, beautiful, marvelous,
waiting for the earth to pass and for me to dive,
like an actor waiting eagerly to go on stage on opening night.

I am a snowflake,
next in a prolonged line,
waiting for my turn,
waiting to leave my homey cloud

I am a snowflake, next in line to depart,
anxious of roaming to a vast mysterious world.
my fellow friends have all alighted the ground,
but what will become of me?

I am a snowflake, that is about to soar through the air,
I tremble, listening to the instructions for my life journey,
I buckle up my parachute for my voyage,
waiting, waiting, waiting…

I am a snowflake, finally on my way,
parachuting down to the ground,
the sky twirls me,
I gradually journe down to earth.

I am a snowflake, looking back at my cozy cloud,
at what I once called home,
bit by bit my cloud diminish into the sky,
as I continue to fall, fall, fall…

I am a snowflake, who finally sees a breathtaking land,
I see my future come my way, I think,
now I am close to my new home,
I will revive my past in my future.
