Hey mama . Right now i’m wondering , what are the chances you’ll be able to read this ? Hopefully you would . This one was made for you .
Remember when i was small i told you i would become an astronaut and pick you flowers from the moon ? from that day on you kept bringing it up and telling that to my friends , and everytime someone mentions flowers you would think of me plucking them for you , haha . I’m really sorry i didnt turn out to be an astronaut . Those dreams are still there buried deep in my chest .
Remember how you used to tell me that i am quiet with other people but with kakcik and abang , I am a little bit more expressive ? you were right . Up until now i couldnt be as expressive as you are . You know me way too well to know that i like to keep things to myself especially the things that hurt me . You were there , you listened and you offered your care and help .
Mama , these are the things that even if i owe you my whole life i still couldnt repay . The way you always packed my lunch for me , turn off the fan to wake me up in the morning , and asked me how my day was at school .
I was an ignorant kid , Ma . even now . I didnt realise the things you did were because you cared . My wrongs you pointed out . my faults you took responsibility for . Even then i keep secrets from you . I lie to you , i become embarrassed around you .
So this here is an opportunity , to say i’m sorry . Of course i could hit you up now and tell you off the phone , or wait till you come back and tell you this myself . But i prefer to put this up , and let people know that its our mothers that offer their blood and sweat for us , like you did for me .
so thank you ma .
p/s : you’re the greatest English teacher . like ever .
