With just sweet memories of the past in my heart and a drop of tear in my eyes, I am trying to live my present to make it perfect. The flashbacks of the time when we use to play together, walk hand in hand all the way and share our sweet secret stories are still in my head.
I know you will be surprised to know that I still remember the words you said to me and things you have stopped me from doing in my early childhood. Your sweet sentence “Baby, try to be good to everyone” still echoes in my heart.
Mum, I know today I have grown up into a girl who has already passed 15 years in this wonderful place where you gave birth to me. Though your love and care is still there for me, we really are apart, Mum!
From the day I have been in school, you have really gone far from me. We indeed meet and call each other often but it has never been the same as childhood. Whenever I try to take your suggestion you tend to say, “Baby, you have grown up, decide on your own.” This sentence always pierces my heart and makes me cry.
Though we stay in same house, we never share those sweet secret stories, never walk hand in hand and never play together. It has been five years. Mum! Why is it that today I fail to talk with strangers just because you stopped me talking to them in childhood?
All these five years, I have been living with the sweet memories of my childhood which I happily spent with you. I still want everything to be the same but because of the distance we have created between us, nothing can be the same, though memories still do hurt me.
