Daily Prompt: Dear Mom

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Write a letter to your mom.Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to.

Dear Mom,

When I was a little girl, I loved listening to songs, I wanted you to hire a teacher for me, so I could learn to sing. You refused, you thought I would give up my studies and will be illiterate.

You hired a teacher for Yasmin and bought her a harmonium as well. I wish you’d give me the same opportunity as you gave her. I know it’s too late now and you might say,”Let bygone’s be bygone’s “, sometimes I feel sad thinking I could not learn something I loved because you did not trust me.

I know you had lots to worry about after dad passed away, you had to take care of everything by yourself. I’m sorry to bring this subject again, it only gives heartbreak to both of us.

I will try not to bring this subject anymore, I do love you for everything you’ve done for us.

All the best to you mom.


Your daughter,

Ranu  🙂

  1. A good way to release what you have been holding onto.

    And the good news is you can learn the harmonium even now. I hope somehow some doors open for you to learn the way they did for me.

      • I have a couple of very old harmoniums, one is about 55 years old, the other probably not too far off. I struggle to have them repaired as there aren’t people here who know this art now. But I am hoping to buy one from India, one day.

  2. Touching Ranu ..I have not commented much, I’ve been really busy. But I always read. You’ve been bringing out a lot of personality in your posts.
