When the Wind Blows



In these last three months, there comes a day like this at times. It’s a day when the wind blows whispering your name. It’s a day when I’m reminded of those days we’ve spent together. It’s a day when I miss you so much. In these last three months, there comes a night like this at times. It’s a night when stars in the sky remind me of you. It’s a night when I’m reminiscing those moments we’ve shared together; those pillow-talks. It’s a night when I long for you so deep. Strangely enough, though your absence is excruciating for me, remembering those times we’ve had together gives a heart-warming feeling inside my heart. It makes me smile amidst these tears I cry. And even the tears shed are tears of beautiful sadness. This house and our room is full of the memories of us. And I still see the picture of us; laughing, crying, fighting, joking, arguing. This city and the streets are full of the memories of us. And I still see the picture of us in every place we used to go, have meals, watch movies, hang out. Those moments will never fade away. I cherish it deep inside my heart. And today, I miss those moments, and I long for you even more, Vidi Mahatma.

You are my star. You who confessed to me, you who came to me no matter where you were, I long for those times. It passed by like a dream, and it’s me who spend the long night with only my memories of you.” –Yoona, When the Wind Blows (바람이 불면)

These days, this song has been stuck on my mind. It’s titled “When the Wind Blows (바람이 불면)”, performed by Yoona of Girls’ Generation. It was released on September 8th 2017 as the 23rd single taken from the S.M. Station Season 2 project. SM Station is a digital music project by the record label SM Entertainment.  “When the Wind Blows (바람이 불면)” is an acoustic ballad track and was written by Yoona along with Conan of Rockabilly, who also composed and arranged the song. An official accompany music video was premiered on Mnet on September 4th 2017. The soothing guitar sounds harmonized by Yoona’s sweet voice reminds me of my significant other. The lyrics, which talks about beautiful and bitter-sweet memories with loved one, remind me of my time spent with my significant other. And honestly, the music video is breaking my heart because it reminds me a lot of my togetherness with my significant other when we used to live together. And it also resembles my current condition so much too. It got me so. I cannot help but shedding a little tears whenever I listen to this song. And I cannot help but longing for my significant other whenever I watch the music video. Hence I dedicate this writing for Vidi Mahatma, in hope that he will read it.

My dear Vidi, do you remember this street we used to walk on together? I currently stand on that street. Though I’m all alone now, I can feel your presence here with me, still. And the wind blows just like that day when we were here together. It reminds me of you once again. Do you happen to think of me too now? Do you remember the first time we met? Your gaze met mine on that bright day at the campus. Though you’re not here now, I can feel that gaze piercing through my soul, still. “Stars in the sky. This night doesn’t feel unfamiliar, at the place where we came together, at the place where I was with you. Do you remember? When the wind was blowing like today, I recall the street we used to walk on.” Do you remember the places we used to come together? I’m currently here at that place. Though I’m not with you now, it still feels familiar to me, since we used to be here together. And I’m talking to the moon to send my longing feeling for you. “Do you remember? Our precious first meeting, your shy smile, the look of you at that time.”
My dear Vidi, don’t you know that you’re the star of my heart? The you who confessed your love for me, the you who always came to me whenever I called in need; I miss that. The you who was always being protective towards me, the you who kissed my fear away; I miss that. The you who took care of everything that I couldn’t, the you who always took the lead and initiative every time I need; I miss that. I long for those moments. “You are my star. You who confessed to me, you who came to me no matter where you were, I long for those times. It passed by like a dream, and it’s me who spend the long night with only my memories of you, I didn’t know back then, your heart.” Still couldn’t believe that those moments we’ve spent and shared together were passing by just like that, like a midsummer night’s dream. And now here I am; spending the long night accompanied by the memories of us. “It passed by like a dream, and it’s me who spend the long night with only my memories of you, I didn’t know back then, it was love.”
My dear Vidi, you know that I never regret every single time I’ve spent with you, right? You know that I always feel grateful that I made decision to be with you, right? I never forget those conversations we’ve had, and also those arguments too. I always remember those things we’ve shared, and also those things we’ve done together too. Do you remember that evening when you left the home for moving out of town for good? Suddenly I recall that moment again. “Under the moonlight, just the two of us, we were standing at the end of a season; I’m reminiscing again, you, back then. I was so thankful that you were there, I hope you can smile when you think of me too.” Though things are different now, I’m always thankful that you were there at those times. Though things have changed now, I never feel sorry for being together with you. I know I can never thank you enough. And I can never apologize enough. All I know is that: I love you, truly, deeply, sincerely, and completely. Near, far, wherever you are, I hope you can smile when you think of me.

My dear Vidi, I feel sorry towards you at times; for I cannot always relate to your story and your condition, for I always seem sad and mad about our current distance-apart situation, for I seem to be taking you for granted. Really I’m sorry. I hope you understand that it wasn’t my intention at all to hurt you. Life takes a toll on me and at times I come undone. At times, I unravel and come apart; not because I’m weak, but because I have been strong for too long. There are times too when I feel melancholy and all I need is just a consolation from you, even though it’s only through a phonecall or text, it’s more than enough for me. However, you must know that I feel thankful towards you all the time; for you are always there every time I need it, for you are being the best partner for me, for your existence in this universe. Really I thank you. I hope you understand that no matter how tired and exhausted I am, my love for you will never be wavered. I will never stop trying and giving my best effort for our relationship. And I hope that you do the same too. I love you, and I miss you so much, Vidi Mahatma.

Under the moonlight, just the two of us, we were standing at the end of a season; I’m reminiscing again, you, back then. I was so thankful that you were there, I hope you can smile when you think of me too. –Yoona, When the Wind Blows (바람이 불면)



Stars in the sky
밤은 낯설지 않아 너와 둘이 왔던 너와 같이 있던

((You who confessed to me, you who came to me no matter where you were, I long for those times))
꿈꾸듯 지나버린 너와의 추억만으로 밤을 보냈던 그땐 몰랐어 너의 마음을
(Kkumkkudeut jinabeorin neowaye chueongmaneuro gin bameul bonaetteon na geuttaen mollasseo neoye maeumeul)
((It passed by like a dream, and it’s me who spend the long night with only my memories of you, I didn’t know back then, your heart))

((It passed by like a dream, and it’s me who spend the long night with only my memories of you, I didn’t know back then, it was love))

달빛 아래 너와 단둘이 계절의 그곳에 서서 너를 추억해 그때의
(Dalbit arae neowa danduri gyejeore kkeut geugose seoseo tto neoreul chueokhae geuttaeye neol)
((Under the moonlight, just the two of us, we were standing at the end of a season, I’m reminiscing again, you, back then))
네가 있어 고마웠어 너도 떠올리면 미소 지을 있게
(Nega isseo cham gomaweosseo neodo nal tteoollimyeon miso jieul su itge)
((I was so thankful that you were there, I hope you can smile when you think of me too))
