It's Okay If You Don't Love Me
by Lee Jung Ha

It's okay if you don't acknowledge me.
A new leaf will sprout,
even under the cold rain
and the stars will come out,
even if clouds cover it.
It's okay if you don't offer me a hand.
I blazed up like a dry leaf
as someone who couldn't say a word.
I'm okay with being in one-sided love
and then becoming love myself.
My love, it's okay if you don't love me.

To Daffodil

By Jung Ho-sung

Don't cry
You are human because you are lonely
Living overcoming loneliness
Don't wait for the phone call that might not come
When it rains, walk on the street with rain
The dark chested long bill 
is watching you from the reed field
Sometimes a god cries because he feels lonely
Birds sit on tree branches because they feel lonely
You sit near the water because you feel lonely
The shadow of mountains comes to town, 
once a day because it feels lonely
The bell ring spreads because it feels lonely
