Memories

Memories flowing loosely,
Remembering when I was younger,
Walking round & holding your hand…

In a shop filled with cameras,
Playing with my oldest cousin,
And my younger ones too…

When Bayblade was still a thing,
& Old school Pokemon,
Played on the TV…

Although my Chinese was poor,
You made an effort to speak to me,
In English…

Then when I would say,
Something in Chinese,
You would smile at me….

It’s those memories,
That I will treasure forever…

I will never forget all the times,
You smiled,
The spent you with me,
& I hope that you’re in a happy place now…

I love you 外婆.
