The Sky Of Beijing

I (-) (it) probably can be said (that) (it) was in Beijing (where I) grew up. I(,) in there(,) went and finished elementary school. Our elementary school (was) not big, (the) inside (of it) existed one “ge” (of) small soccer field, me and (the) friends every day all loved(,) in (the) underneath (of the) sun(,) kicking(/playing) soccer.

(The) sky (at) that time, (was) (so) high, (the) clouds (at) that time, (were) so white. Us (who) finished kicking ball sat on the ball field, drinking ice coke, looking at (the) clouds on (the) sky, saying (the) things (that we) want to do, (the) places (that we) want to go (in the) time (that is) after growing up. (At) that time(,) time (was) very slow, (in) one “ge” (of) afternoon (we) were able to finish saying everybody’s plans for tomorrow.

Waiting till (the) evening (the) moon came out, (it) “exactly” was time (for the) kids should return home (already). Mother was holding (the) keys, father was holding my soccer ball. Us (the) one family(,) towards home(,) were walking, (the) moon too was walking together with us.

(The) me now (has) already grown up, I (have) gone to very many places, (I) also(,) in (the) sky of those places(,) (have) seen (the) sun, (the) moon and (the) clouds, but (the place that) I love the most still is Beijing, because there exists my friends and parents, there exists my home. Though Beijing now(,) being away from me(,) (is) very far, but when I want to go back, (I) still am able to go (there). (The) sky of Beijing, still is (so) high, (the) clouds of Beijing, still are (so) white. But (what) makes people sad is, (the) afternoons on (the) ball-field (like) that (of) the time (when I was) little, already were not able to go back.
