雨(献给一个挚友)/ Rain (Dedicated to a dear friend)

新加坡的天气就像一个人的心,难于预测。
整个早上与中午明明是艳阳高照,却在下午忽然雷电交加,明朗的天空在瞬间陷入了灰暗。
下午时分,雷公忽然怒吼一声,滂沱大雨便如千万支银针从天而降。
从27楼的窗口望出去,雨水模糊了窗外的景致,煞是美丽。
望着雨丝或笔直或倾斜地坠落在玻璃窗上、树梢上、草地上、行人道上、柏油路上,沙沙作响,忽然想起我那个喜欢雨天的挚友。
于是,赶紧从背包里把相机提了出来,调了设置,开始将那一幕雨景尽数收录在相机里,就像是想把我的心情捕捉下来。
站在楼梯口从高处俯视,街上除了车辆之外,杳无人迹。
我将相机对着窗口外的滂沱大雨,默默地记录,任狂风把雨丝泼得我一脸的水珠。
然后,我搭了电梯来到了一楼,开始近距离地拍摄雨珠掀起的圈圈涟漪与小小浪花。
我知道她很喜欢雨,常常幻想着能够肆无忌惮地在雨中漫步,感受雨水的冰凉撞击在自己的脸上。她说过,那种感觉很舒服,也很浪漫。犹记得当她这样对我说的时候,我想象着她站在雨里开心地笑着,那一颗赤子之心所绽放的纯真,仿佛就写在她的脸上。
只可惜,我俩已分道扬镳,就在昨天傍晚,我俩真正地成为了最熟悉的陌生人了,日后即便是陌路相逢,或许也只能是擦肩而过的路人。
回到家后,我便开始把所拍摄的一切导入笔记本,把它们制作成这一段《雨》的视频,希望能够把它献给我的挚友,就当做是我们分手的礼物。原本想写一首诗来衬托雨的浪漫,可脑袋却是空空的,什么也写不出来。
我相信总有一天,当我再次重看这段视频,我一定能以一首诗来描绘我此刻的心情。
这一场豪雨来得正是时候,仿佛在为我痛失挚友的心情做一番彻底的洗涤……

Singapore’s weather is like the mood of a person, so unpredictable.
It was sunny and hot from morning till noon, and who would know that thunders and lightnings would strike in the late afternoon and bring the whole world into “darkness” in daylight.
As the thunder roared, heavy raindrops began to fall from the sky and as I looked out from my 27th floor window, the misty world was beautiful!
As I watched the rain knocked on my window panes, fell on the trees, the pavements and the roads and listened to the rhythm of the rain, a very close friend of mine who loves the rain came into my mind.
With that thought, I quickly took out my camera and began to shoot the rainy scene, as if I was capturing my own emotions and feelings.
I stood at the stairway, pointing my camera on the deserted street, and felt the coolness of the rain on my face brought in by the rushing wind.
Then I took the lift to the ground floor for closer shots of ripples and splashes caused by the heavy downpour.
I know my friend loves the rain and she has always imagined herself walking or dancing in the rain. She loves the feeling of raindrops falling on her head and her face. And when she told me about this fantasy of hers, I imagined how her smile would be beaming on her face when dances in the rain.
Unfortunately, it was just yesterday evening when I said my last goodbye to her and let go of this friendship. We will be strangers from then on, and even if we do meet along the street in the future, we will be passers by.
When I reached home, I transferred all the shots into my notebook and started producing this video I called “rain”. I hope to share with her this video as my last gift to her. I have wanted to write a poem to mark this romantic moment but my thoughts were frozen. So I let it be.
But I believe, that one day when I watch this video again, I will be able to pen down something that describes my feelings today.
This heavy downpour has come at the right time, for it seems to soothe the pain of losing a great friend in my heart.

  1. 我曾看過一篇研究性文章寫著
    如果真能讓我們重頭再做一次選擇
    我們絕大多數人還是會做出和之前一樣的決定

    有時回首過往想著一些令人感到遺憾的事
    確實心中仍舊存著遺憾
    可是再認真想想
    我們確實很難改變當時的什麼吧

    但能留下一些情緒與心情也都是好的
    畢竟這就是人生

    很有感情的文章
    音樂也很貼切
    很喜歡!
