Longer than the Road by wind rider

[Comments - 1] Printer

Summary:

They left her side, she waited. They killed, shaming her, she forgave them. They might never come back to her, but she would take all that she had. She would wait until beyond the world’s breaking, because a mother’s love is longer than the road.

Reference:
An Indonesian proverb says, “Kasih anak sepanjang buluh, kasih orangtua sepanjang jalan.” The author translated it as “A child’s love is as long as the rod, a parent’s love is as long as the road” in English. (Apologies for the clumsy attempt.)

 

Notes: Dedicated to mothers everywhere who are dedicated to their children – including the author’s own mother, sometimes to her chagrin. Here the author would also beg the readers to help with the name of the flower featured in the story.
