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~
