My grandma, who has always been loving me
ever since I was born in this world, is passing away.
She is an amazing Haiku poet publishing a book several years ago,
and a wonderful wife to support my 94-years-old grandfather,
a former chief priest of Zunkoji temple in Toyama prefecture,
who had received a Lifetime Achievement Award of
Society for the Promotion of Buddhism last year.
as well as being a mother of seven children, eight grandchildren,
and ten great-grandchildren of my family.
She wears Kimono so beautifully with her tall, fit and straight postures,
and even though she was normally very calm and quiet next to her husband,
we all know her strong spirit and presence between our family.
there are many encounters and partings in one life,
yet facing this biggest apart from someone in my life for my life,
is making me at lost.
what on earth, can i give her at this last moment?
