MISSING THE VIETNAMESE CREPES THAT MY MOM USED TO MAKE - NHỚ BÁNH XÈO CỦA MẸ



MISSING THE VIETNAMESE CREPES
THAT MY MOM USED TO MAKE

The yellow maple leaves are swinging in the wind.
The monsoon’s extreme weather, mixing with the rain.
 I am soaking wet and feeling cold from the inside out.
That crepe cake Mom used to make with her own sweat...
Oh, how much I miss her...
Knowing I am her continuation, I just breathe.

Breathe!

NHỚ BÁNH XÈO CỦA MẸ

Lá phong vàng đỏ đong đưa
Gió mùa lạnh giá trời mưa trong ngoài. 
Bánh xèo quyện lẫn mồ hôi 
Nhớ thương kính Mẹ đành thôi... thở phèo.
