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.
