“My daughter who left for Milan last year to live there with her husband and whom I refer to in many of my poems as a bluebird, visited me. I love her dearly and don’t find it easy to live without her near me. So, I felt she had never gone and that there was no reason for my pain and sorrow. But, very soon, she “flew away” like cherry blossoms that leave their trees that gave them life and nourished them.”

we’ll soon have to part –
