Leaves from the Vine (Chinese cover)

[personal profile] softestbullet asked me to post here..... I hope I'm doing it right :']

"Leaves from the Vine" is a song that Uncle Iroh sings in memory of his son Lu Ten from the Asian-inspired series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Because the "translation" on the wikia looks like it'd been run through google translate 10 years ago, and therefore I am 99.99% sure it is not official, I went ahead and wrote my own Chinese translation that could be sung to the same tune.

Please tag this however you see fit. Thank you~

That scene made me cry my eyes out, and whenever I think about the little poem, I make this face ;______;
