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.
