~Gandhi and Nana~

As usual,
things become hectic at night
just before going to bed.

Nana looks at me as if saying:

Mom, why now so busy?
You had lots of time
during the day~

I somehow cannot learn this lesson
and remember the words of Gandhi:

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
Learn as if you were to live forever.”

Then I hurry to clean up my kitchen
feeling the eye of Nana on my back…

Nana, I will soon be here for you~
