The farther you get (for my mother)
Age Group: Adult
The farther you get, the more wonderful you seem
the warmth of each memory is closer and without
barriers or boundaries of grudges and disagreements
the things that make you unique stand out
and seem all the more lovable than before…
The farther you get, the more I miss you
for having to relish each warm memory and secretly
worrying that one day, the distance will become too far away…
beyond my reach, beyond the veil
the inevitability of time that I never wish to see
and yet one day, see it I must, I know
but it makes it no easier.
The farther you get, the more I realize
how lucky I’d been to have you in my life at all
of all people to help me grow, it had been you…
the more distance between us, the more part of me wishes
that I’d never gotten this far, because now the time is gone
when you are standing above me, my gardener
who waters and nurtures me, your little tree.
The farther you get, the more each memory hurts
of the times when I thought I’d hurt you somehow
the times I wish I could undo, unspeak them, unhappen them
even though I know that you have forgiven me…
The farther you get, the more I feel your nurturing and love
because every time I feel alone or sad, I always remember
that I never am alone, as long as you, my mother, and my father live
that no matter how many people hurt me,
I’ll always have someone to look to for support.
The farther you get, the more I value
how proud I am of you and dad
because you live the right way, despite all the hardships
and because you haven’t let life get to you like so many others…
And the farther you get, the more glad I am
that I chose you as parents.
