Mom, I have been wanting to tell you this for a long time. Well, I know this is going to be pretty long, but you will have to spare your time in between you assiduous schedules because you have given rise to the most expressive and dramatic girl in the world who is just like you.
I don’t know if I have been ‘that child’ you were dying (literally died) to have, but you are definitely more than what I could have asked for. Not to be sappy, but there are so many things that I have left unsaid.
Every day, you give me yet another reason to be proud of you. All that I am today and all that I will ever be is because of you. You are my sunshine, the first ray of love and hope on a smirky morning. You are the stars on my sky and the only rule I abide by.
I am sorry about all the times that I took you for granted. It is simply because I knew that you would be there for me. For all the times, when I kicked you from inside, when you couldn’t stop vomiting because I decided to take a toll over your hormones, for the sleepless nights, for the morning blues, for the teenage tantrums, for the twitchiness, for the stress, the anxiety and the agitation, for all that I did with and without my will, sorry.
You are the apple of my eye. You are the exclamatory mark behind my every happy sentence. You are my own bundle of joy. I am 23 and I still haven’t found someone who can understand me the way you do. You know it when I am happy, sad, emotional and outright dangerous for anyone else but you.
Thank you for living my dream. Thank you for changing the course of your life for me, you didn’t have to do it, but you did. Thank you for being my foul weather best friend. Thank you for trusting me with my decisions. Thank you for always being the strong one. Thank you for the early morning cuddles. Thank you for the little things that I didn’t thank you for.
You have been there for me during all the struggles of my life and I know that I have been more of a pain than pleasure. You were there for me when I couldn`t find the right pair of shoes. You were there for me when I came home crying because life happened. You were there behind me busy cleaning up every mess I got into. You are the blessing that I receive in disguise.
You are my precious everything. I have learned so much from you. You taught me what it is to love and be loved. You were right about everything in my life. Your smile and only your smile makes my world go around.
Thank you for showing me that, forevers exist. You are more than what words could express. No one else, but you will understand my love for you because you are one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.
I love you Amma. I love you the most. I love you more than everything that I have and I will ever have.
