Father catches up with mother in his own way

Her one year memorial falls

on his 100th day!

On Chinese lunar calendar

An event is marked for them both

We gather at their joined tomb with food and cigarettes they liked

Where they reunite, relive and they celebrate!


Father outlives mother

thus the loss brings him no suffer

He walks quietly, dementia circular

Knowing not where to head for

Love was never a word they say

It was there in abundance every day


Fate must have its miraculous ways

Mother would just be there admiring flowers

when father passes by in haste

Heavenly birds then start to sing

and suddenly, he will remember everything!

To my dearest mother who passed away in Sep 2015 and my dearest father who followed in May 2016.
