Dear mom & dad,
I just want to let you know that I love you both so much…
From the very first day I opened my eyes to this world you have sculpted me with your own hands so that I could bloom like a flower which is strong enough to withstand all the adversities. It is often said that we realize value of something when it’s far away from us. As a kid, we never realize the value of having our parents beside us. But, today I really thank God that he always assured his presence in my life in the form of you both.
As I grew up mom, sometimes you got angry with me, sometimes you stopped talking with me. I used to wonder why did you get angry without reasons. And then I reached the dangerous teenage where all parents get “over-protective” for their children. 🙂 Yes, I might have disappointed you or made you angry at times, and I feel so stupid to be like that. I am sorry mom. 🙂 I wish I could just rewind and go back and never never make you angry. I wish I could make you smile each and every second. But, I guess it was all necessary for me to become what I am today. I always wanted to be you, and I can proudly say that I am already on that path mom. 🙂
And my all time protective shield, pamperer, magician, favorite cook, my hero, my dad. 🙂 You always protected me from mom’s anger. 🙂 I still remember those days when even simplest of the things were magic to me. Those school projects with your artistic drawings always got me awesome grades. That early morning routine when you dropped me off to school and I couldn’t stop crying to which of course you cried too. My God, I made you cry so much, like everyday dad. I am sorry. 🙂 And oh yes, forget all those famous restaurants I had the world’s best chef at home. Seriously, even today I can’t cook like you did, I don’t know what made your food so tasty and I guess that’s the reason for my weight gain. 🙂
As years have passed, and I am far far from you both, I just want to say that not even a second passes by that I don’t think about you both. All I am thinking is, “What might they be doing right now?”… “I hope they took medicines timely.”…”I hope they are fine.”….
I have truly realized what really makes sense is do what you can right now, at this very moment. Life is short. Make the people you really care for, happy. Unfortunately, today there are very few of us who can even patiently listen to our parents, and making them happy is a far more next to impossible thing. Be patient, listen to them, tell them what they want to hear, do as they wish, remembering the fact that they never got impatient when we were not even able to walk or talk properly. Our phase of being kids is over. It’s time for us to act as parents and let your parents become the kids. 🙂 Take care of them, they are precious. Don’t make choices today that will later make you say “I wish…”, because then you can actually only wish!
