What does this song mean?
« on: October 05, 2018, 04:20:32 PM »
I've been listening to this song 10 times a day now.  It's soft and soothing makes me go into a contemplative state.  Then I started to concentrate on the words of the song. 

It's a ballad or story about a soldier having to leave his young wife and mother.  Then at the end of the song it says,

my friend pour carefully,
my house is at the foot of the mountain,
there are rows of crosses
and my wife is there

Words to the song:

Tôi đứng bên này sông, bên kia vùng lửa khói.
Làng tôi đây, bao năm dài chinh chiến,
Từng lũy tre muộn phiền.
Tôi có người vợ ngoan.
Đẹp như trăng mười sáu, cưới rồi đành xa nhau.

Nhớ đôi môi nàng hiền, xinh xinh màu nắng.
Má nàng hồng thơm mùi thơm lúa non.
Ai ra đi mà không từng bịn rịn.
Xa người yêu mà dễ mấy ai vui.

Em nhìn theo bằng nước mắt chia phôi.
Tôi mạnh bước mà nghe hồn nhỏ lệ
Này anh lính chiến, người bạn pháo binh.
Mẹ tôi tóc sương từng đêm nghe đạn pháo rơi thật buồn.

Anh rót cho khéo nhé, kẻo lầm vào nhà tôi.
Nhà tôi ở cuối chân đồi,
Có giàn thiên lý, có người tôi thương.
