By Yu Guangzhong
When was a child
Homesickness is a small stamp
I am here
Mother is there
When I grew up
Homesickness is a narrow steamer ticket
I am here
The bride is there
Homesickness is a low grave
I am outside
Mother is inside
Homesickness is a shallow channel of bay
I am here
The mainland is over there
