I gaze at the bright vista before me – a perfect picture framed by the arches.  Peaceful at last!  I do not have to fret any more.

When I needed to find him, he led me here.  He heard me and showed himself.  He still cared for me and I forgave him after all these years.

I can still hear my mother’s voice echoing through the years.

“You are so foolish, always picking the leftovers.  You take the ones others don’t want.”

I have been foolish but may he rest in peace now.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    I’m wondering whether her forgiving him and him being dead are connected… so much intrigue here!
