tagged me to do this. Instead of completing each sentence individually, I thought I'ld combine all of them to express my inner feeling towards a special person. Thanks Nao for tagging me.
I AM a parent to a teenage daughter. Sometimes, I can’t help feeling sad that
I CRY when I see her unhappy. Because all
I WANT is for her to always feel happy. In fact, if
I HAVE a wish for her,
I WISH that she grows up contented in life. For
I HATE to see her having any regrets in life. How
I MISSed her sweet and childish ways. I remember once when she was little
I DANCEd with her, until I fell exhausted while she continued to laugh and dance. Now
I FEAR that she’s growing up too fast and slowly moving farther away from us. When
I HEAR her on the phone talking with friends,
I LOOK at her and ask her, who she’s talking to on the phone. Perhaps with a bit of jealousy, I tell her to hang up and go to sleep. How
I LOVE the moments we share together. Yet
I ACHE to think that someday she’ll have to leave us. But today
I SING and set aside my fears and worries of the future.
I NEED to be a good parent to her. Be a role model.
I MUST teach her how to be responsible and caring. Be supportive of her in every way. Always
I SEARCH ways to improve myself to become a better person and father. Because somehow,
I REGRET that I was not a perfect son when I was the same age as my daughter is now.
I WAS NOT as delightful and as obedient to my parents as my daughter is to us now. Which is the reason why
I WRITE and pour my heart away, knowing how lucky a parent I am; that
I SHOULD be thankful to God for this blessing called “daughter”. But then
I WONDER if in my daughter’s mind she too feels equally blessed for having me as a father. I don’t know for sure, so
I BLOG my feelings today in the hope that someday she’ll get the chance to read this. When she does, I hope she leaves a comment even if signed "Anonymous" 'cause she'll never be anonymous to me. Not in any way.
