    A OUN in Michael Learns To Rock song called "Take me to your heart" there is a phrase : "THEY SAY NOTHING LAST FOREVER.....".

    You're right,

    Everything changes.

    Only CHANGE that remains unchanged...

    This is fascinating to read and feel.

    I am wondering if you can write it in Khmer Unicode.

    Hi Tharum,

    I want to write in Khmer Unicode too, as a matter of fact. But the problem is most schools here in Japan won't allow you to download anything from school's public computer; meaning I can't read everything that is written in Khmer Unicode.

    Is there a way to view Khmer Unicode without having to download?

    It is so meaningful!

    I'd like to argue that 'Change' can be changed! e.g. He changes... I've changed... (j/k)

    Anyway, Seserak u r an awesome poet!

    I would love to read your poem, but alas I cannot read Khmer. Could you translate in English?

    Hi Beth,

    Here's the English Version( Just a plain translation, sorry, as I don't know how to write English Poem):

    Autumn has fallen,
    Along the road, the trees are changing their colors,
    The leaves, once green, now turn red,
    Some have fallen off to the ground.

    Between Trees and Men, is there any difference?
    We were young the other day and suddently we find ourselves old,
    We meet yesterday, tomorrow we part,
    O what a changing world!
