My dearest daughter,
Words fail me and I wonder where did the years go by. Time, certainly was not our friend , it slipped by so quickly. Where did these 18 years go by? It was just the other day, I was fervently praying for a little girl. Pink ribbons and pony tails and bonnets to match. Daddy's doll, Big brother's punching bag, your grouse that he'd pull your plaits to talk to you and hide your dolls! The tiny patter and those innocent button eyes, you, who loved Peter Rabbit and Benjamin bunny. Chasing butterflies and kissing flowers in the garden and filling our lives with peals of laughter. Some said, I loved you too much, hugged you more than required but who knew a Mama's heart , no matter how much I loved you both, there was still so much more.
As you grew up and you watched the world turn and disintegrate into bits , you stood strong, like a sentinel , the little girl grew up overnight. You kept our spirit high, determined to overcome all, tactile and tenacious , you fought back with all your might. You are now poised to fly and seek your own path, this is all I have to say to you, my little girl.
