Nancy G.~by Temy Hoang

for my mother-in-law


Nancy G.

And just like that you were gone

When the rain was crying hard on the street

It’s convoluted like the darkness

Engulfing our souls and our hearts


Where’s the beautiful lady

Bright and shining on the wedding day?

Where’s the caring mother

Who cooked and worked and took care of her five children

Until exhausted and passed out?


“The leopard” is still roaming the forest

The freshly baked blueberry muffins

Left a warm and sweet taste on my tongue

But you’re gone

Like the grains of light I reach out

To grasp but catch nothing.
