Three Seven

Thirty seven years ago today I came into this world and cried for the joy of life. Thirty seven years later I am crying again, grieving for the demise of the woman who gave life to me. Spending this significant moment of Mum?s life, and mine too, by myself enfolds me in untold sadness.

I hope I was a bundle of joy to Mum when she delivered me. The Caesarean Section scar was still distinctly visible more than three decades later. The image of that scar will serve as a reminder of the pain Mum had to go through to give life to me.

Mum?s presence is all pervading today. I can feel the essence of her encompassing all of me. I sincerely pray that Mum has found eternal tranquillity wherever she has gone to. Eventually, I too will find solace in the path that Mum took and continue to live the life that Mum had intended me to. I love you Mum. May peace be with you, always.

  1. Thank you for the condolence. Yes, I wish I never have to lose my Mum too, but that is life. In my mind, I thought she would live forever. Perhaps she is…. immortalized in the life that she had given me.
