One single impression: fancy (weekend reflections #13)

Missing you
Between reality and fancy
Autumn daydream

One single impression: grace

Thinking of you

In the chilly wind

I watched the leaves dancing

Whisper the grace of love

ABC Wednesday-L for Love

Today was the final farewell to Mrs Lee Kuan Yew. She is a lady who is undoubtedly the Mother of our young nation, having stood by the country through thick and thin…And the most impressed me is their love.

MM Lee and Mrs Lee are well-known to be a very loving couple.

There are so many famous people in this world, from eastern country to western country, who had a marriage like theirs? Their marriage is made in heaven, they have gone through 60 over years together in life, I hope we will all have lovely and great marriages like that too.

In memory of their true love, here’s Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116, as my final farewell to Mrs Lee.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

ABC Wednesday-L for Love

One single impress: try

One single impression: try

I try to believe you will be back
Though waiting in vain
I try my best to love
Though love ends up with hurt

I try very hard to remain the person
I suppose to be but most of the time I failed
I try to be honest
when the world is full of lies
But no one would like to hear my scream

I try to catch the shadow in my dreams
But I only take our the camera in reality
There is always a gab between try and not trying
It is up to you to choose

With all my hesitation and expectation in life
I try to live
as who I am

I try to remember the colors of rainbow
When my sky is dark grey storm is coming
I try my best to learn dancing in the rain
While waiting for the sun shine again

One single impress: monument

Built in the memory of
Who are alive

Paying respect to the ancestors
With food, drinks, incense, Heaven money, 
Computer, hand phone  and more
Though they may have none of all these
When they are alive
Ghost festivals are celebrated for the live one

Built for the live ones
To remember debris of time

A note here for my beloved ones
No monument needed
No praying needed
Forget me if you can
When I am apart
To another world with peace and love

No more exit when the world full of peace and love
Appreciate live one when they are alive

PS, picture taken during the 7th month of Chinese calendar, people burns the paper and display the foods by the road side…This is a part of celebrating of Ghost Month. But I read from some reports that some of the unfilial children refuse to take care the parents when they are alive but having a big ceremony when they are gone…
