“Your Happiness and My Suffering”
ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བདེ་སྐྱིད་དང་ང་ཡི་སྡུག་བསྔལ།
Singer, Lyrics, Melody: Khoten ཁོ་བསྟན།

The snow that falls from the sky is not white
The flower that grows from the earth is not red
The story of the sky melding with the earth is not real
The love and loyalty under the sky is not true

Oh, even if you have no need of my spirit
For me, I have my own aspirations

My Ka Kha are not your toys
My soul is not your merchandise
My youth is not your money
My universe is not your factory

Oh, even if you have no need of my soul
For me, it has its own value

Do not cut my heart’s artery
Do not destroy my parents’ spirit
Even if you possess my physical body
You don’t know my heart’s conceptions

Oh, even if you have no need of my youth
For me, it has its own beauty
Oh, even if you have no need of my youth
For me, it has its own beauty

[Translation: Tenzin Dickyi and Dhondup Tashi Rekjong]
