I wish I could follow my children to wherever they are

Filed under: Daughter — admin @ 12:12 am


I used to tell myself and some of my friends that I would follow my children to wherever they are. But things are not as easy as I wish. First went my son, now and finally, my daughter. I can’t confront the fact that for the first time in 24 years, I will have to live out days and days without my children around.

When I talked to my sister over Skype, I told her to come with her son if she planned to send her son over. “You don’t want to go through this separation.”

I wish I had this freedom. I wish I could go wherever I want.

The ancient Chinese poem does not help, even though modern technologies have vastly shortened the distance. We can skype, but I don’t want my daughter to see how sad I am now. I don’t trust myself to sound like a normal person over the phone. I would rather text her. I would rather live through this period alone.


  1. Today, I went to your website with a occasionally chance.Under a curiosity.I read some of your articles.Deeply touched by your emotions with your Children. Your childrens are the center of your world.

    After your daugter left for her college. It lost fundament in your world. It is reasonalbe and understandable.

    You should better go to see your friends. Team activities could release the lasting emotions of missing your daugter.

    Good wishes to you!

  2. Thank you, Frank, for your good wish and advice. It’s been three years since that time. I have tried and adapted myself to this.
