桃花笑春風

The other day I came across this Chinese poem:

去年今日此門中

人面桃花相映紅

人面不知何處去

桃花依舊笑春風

Its last verse made me think… The heart of the poem is that peach flowers keep blooming and releasing their scent every year in the same way, but while flowers don’t change, human being change. However, I like to think that it conceals the meaning that even if the flow of events makes people change, their heart doesn’t change, and they can go back to their former state of mind, feeling the same emotions and preserving what makes who they are…
