To Ma

You carried me through the journey

toward this world

And laid my heart like a little treasure

in my hands

Use, you said, when it was time

I moved through heavens, through hells

I carried your heart in my heart

Ma, before you delivered

Were you also exhausted?

Were you also crying in pain

Once you leaned beside me in the crib

And told a story of a beautiful place of dreams

I know now I am those dreams

Your heart in my heart

has led me here
