A famous memorial poem by Su Shi(苏轼 or 苏东坡)to his wife who passed 10 years ago. This is also a typical Song Ci.(宋词 )

Memorial to the dead poem(悼亡诗) is a type of Chinese poem, this one belongs to the short list of top poems of the kind, recited generation after generation.

There is a pop song 十年, Which I believed had borrowed a lot from this poem.

江城子 乙卯正月二十日夜记梦
苏轼

十年生死两茫茫,不思量,自难忘。
千里孤坟,无处话凄凉。
纵使相逢应不识,尘满面,鬓如霜。

夜来幽梦忽还乡,小轩窗,正梳妆。
相顾无言,惟有泪千行。
料得年年肠断处,明月夜,短松冈。
