All Throughout This My Life: To Mother


mothers day

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!

There is such a person,
She is always watching over you,
No matter how far you go,
No matter where you are,
You are always the one in her heart.
That person is the mother.

Mother’s day is here, and I would like to share the beautiful and touching poem with all the mothers in the world. The poem is written by Yu Guangzhong who was a famous Taiwanese writer, poet, educator, and critic.

All Throughout This My Life: To Mother

All throughout this my life

Twice in abandon did I cry.

Once, when my life began;

The other, when yours ended.

The first time, I couldn’t remember but heard from you.

The second, you wouldn’t know even if I told.

Yet all between these two cries

Long our laughter kept ringing

Again and again and again,

Ringing for fully thirty years.

This surely you did not know

And surely I can’t forget.

Chinese version-

余光中 今生今世 (母難日三題之一) 

我最忘情的哭聲有兩次
一次, 在我生命的開始
一次,在妳生命的告終
第一次,我不會記得,是聽妳說的
第二次,妳不會曉得,我說也沒用
但兩次哭聲的中間啊
有無窮無盡的笑聲
一遍一遍又一遍
回盪了整整三十年
妳都曉得,我都記得
