Please,my dear ,be so generous as to let me have a little world of my own.If you find scrawling on a piece of paper, please don't peep over my shoulders.It may be that I'm venting some pent-up feelings,long dennied expression,or trying to compose a little poem not yet presentable for a time being,or attempting to sketch out something visualized my childhood memories which glowing my minf like a rainbow.When I am in such a mood,Please leave me along and let me write as the pen dictates. Don’t disturb me, my dear, when I get nostalgic over some old photos or letters which bring tears to my eyes or smiles on my lips, for those were things that had happened to me before I met you, the joys and sorrows, partings and reunions that taste like green olive or glitter like scattered pearls. They are my cherished memories which, ready as I am to share with you, I would like to indulge in by myself for a while.
亲爱的男朋友，请大度地给我一个小小的世界。当你发现我在纸上胡涂乱写的时候，请不要在我身后窥视。我或许在发泄某种压抑在心中长期未诉说的情绪，或是在 设法构思一首暂时还羞于见人的小诗，或是在试图勾勒某件依然在我脑际像彩虹般闪着光彩的童年往事。或是处于这样的心境时，请别管我，请让我信笔驰骋。当我对着昔日的照片和书信沉思、垂泪或微笑，怀旧之情油然而生的时候，我亲爱的，请不要打扰我。因为那些照片和书信记录着我遇到你之前所经历的一些事儿 ----那些悲欢离合如同青色的橄榄一样酸涩，像散落的珍珠闪闪发光。这些是珍藏于我心中的回忆，尽管我愿意和你共同分享，但我还是想独自沉浸与这些往事 中，品味一番，细数一阵。
I hope you won’t mind when I go without you for a nice chat with a close friend of mine. You are my bosom friend, but you cannot take the place of other friends any more than they can do yours. I need their care, encouragement and sobering criticism just as I do yours. A starless sky with a solitary moon would be dull and cheerless, why not let there be a moonlit night resplendent with twinkling stars.
I may occasionally want to make a tour of faraway places. Please don’t hold me back when I start picking for it. You are the center of my life, but certainly not the whole of it. I yearn to see the mysteries and wonders of the world miles away beyond the mountains; So let me have a chance to explore my “Alice’s Wonderland” as a “lone ranger”. Some time later when I come back to you with exotic experiences and fresh insights, I’m sure you will look at me in a new light.
My dear , so long as you let me have such a little, little world, I’ll be very much indebted to you.
