Mum,  I bought me a gift,  the type I had always wanted for him to get me,  I've tried to see the world through your loving eyes but the vision is so blur or rather so faint compared to what you taught me about the world.

MA; you said the world is a beautiful place and our hearts is the home of love, but all I see is gloominess... Scarred people,  depressed and oppressed people, I see the opposite of all the beautiful version you saw. 

Ma; He winked at me again,  if only he'd ask,  but how long would I wait for him to ask, I think what I feel for him is what you taught me means love. . Would it be right if I write him a poem? Would he understand the unspoken words in between the lines.

Ma; the waiting was taking forever, so I bought me a beautiful gift and addressed it to me,  I was thrilled when the door bell rang...i signed and collected my gift from the delivery Man and Ma guess what? I was happy to hold his questioning gaze as I turned towards his window.

Ma; I think he is jealous and my instinct tells me he'll knock my door tonight.....???
