Nostalgic Remembrance

Once in awhile, I have an urge of

Going home to see my parents.

I shook my head hard for a few seconds,

Remembering they were gone to heaven.

They passed away on the same day –

Chinese New Year’s Eve, four years different.

When our siblings realized that,

We all had goosebumps.

Dad had a stroke,

Half of his body paralyzed,

 Eight months after passed away.

Mom had Alzheimer’s disease,

Lingered for four more years.

She died of heart failure,

On the same day when

Dad passed away!

They are now in a better place,

Holding hands walking, in heaven.
