Why is everything so short, so short?
Just like a flowering day quickly past
But I always remember the briefness
that concentrates your life full of vitalities
One day sooner or later I'm getting old
Your soul is still that young and brilliant
I always want to say to you my dearest
You are the newborn April shine in my heart
Your existence used to be my best love -
An incredible beauty carved in my mind
I feel you deeply in my soul, never depart
You are the never ended flower in my world

This is a very moving poem, I felt a stillness settle around me as I read it because I knew it was addressed to your parents. The last seven lines are pure radiance. You express such gratitude to your parents for making you and nurturing you - in fact, the gratitude is so strong it seems to wash away the sorrow. And that's the purpose of such a festival, it's the same purpose poetry has: to express strong feelings withoput any trace of negativity so that all is sweetness and light. I feel a glow inside me after reading this. It will soon be the third anniversary of my mother's death, and I am sharing your poem with my twin sister. She doesn't read poetry in general, but this one will speak to her.
Thank you Daniel for your touching comment. I felt comforted when you said you were sharing this poem with your sister. We once experienced the same loss and pains; so, hope this poem would be a small comfort to you too. Stay blessed ~
