Daddy: October 1943- January 2005


Empty-handed I entered the world
Barefoot I leave it.
My coming, my going—
Two simple happenings
That got entangled.

(Ichikyo, written on the morning of his death, 1360)

Wow. Amazing and true.

MJ said...

What did they write with in 1360?

Leah said...

MJ: apparently, brush and ink.

Karen: I love that poem. I wondered what it said in the original Japanese, though. Maybe a little different.

QG: Thanks sweetie.

Hey Leah,
I guess the hole in our hearts they leave never fills up does it? The poem is lovely. Poignant and lovely. Damn, you've made me cry now.

Leah said...

Cece: you know, poetry has helped me all along in dealing with the death of my beloveds. And crying is good, I do it often when I think of dad, although in the early days, where you are now, it can feel so raw...love to you.
