Brent Wells
Nguoi O Dung Ve is a song of parting typically sung about two lovers. In the poem, a man is forced to leave, though his love pleads for him to stay. When parting is inevitable, she asks him to be faithful, assuring him that she will wait as the river flows and the water fern floats. However, she warns him to return swiftly, reminding him that the water fern will eventually float away and be lost.
