(One must cross Mỹ Thuận River to get to Saigon.
Why do you hesitate to tell me your feelings?
Year by year, month by month, I can only ask God, who remains silent!)
These folk lines show a man’s constant wonder about a lady’s feelings for him. As one must cross Mỹ Thuận River to get to Saigon, a question must be followed by an answer, but silence is all he gets from her.
