Somehow, as she left
she paved the way
to pursue what she gave up for me.
Her death, an unbearable loss,
a black hole,
a dark night
from which I can never come out
or so, I thought
yet, she showed me light at the end of the tunnel,
a brighter day,
a path I never knew existed
and, here I am facing a wave
of learning children
who are to be my medicine for pain,
as they distract me, from my grief
with their innocent faces, smiles and actions.
I can see her smile now,
happy to experience her daughter's joy.
Thank you Ma!
