What to Remember

By Hayun Lee (이하연) / Submitted by Stella Chung, ETA ’17-’18

What to Remember

Remember the tremble back
which concealed the wet eyelashes

Remember the coarse hands
which held heavy burden

Remember the wrinkled forehead
which caved in with your faults

Remember the white hair
which had been black before met you

Remember the curved waist
which carried you on

Remember the thin arms
which hugged you until you fall asleep

Remember the small lips
which kissed on your cheeks

Remember the love
which forgave your any mistakes.

what she has given up to blossom her flower
