For my mother, with love
Mother, everything is very difficult, and I know it is the same for you too...
But on the other hand, I know that you are the only person I can count on in this world, and that is why I am writing this note, with the intention that you understand me and my errors and that you continue to offer, as always, your love and your affection.
It may seem selfish, but it is not. I am here, opening my heart to you so that you feel the trust and love that I dedicate to you. I am here so that you realize that I recognize the love you have for me, every minute, although sometimes we disagree on so many aspects.
True love knows no bounds. We must feel of other’s pain as our own. We must feel the other’s fears as if they were our own. More importantly, you need to know how to placate the fears and heal the wounds. From the smallest ones, such as the knee wounds (which usually occur when we are children) or the elbow wounds (which usually occur during adolescence), to those deeper wounds, affecting the heart which truly makes me cry as an adult. Mothers know how to console, like no one else. And my mother, who is so dear to me, does it better than all other mothers combined.
And so, with this note, I want to honor you and ask for your affection and your love again. You are my mother and I do not know if I deserve you, because I cannot imagine any way to give back all the good that you have always done me and still do.
Big kiss, love and affection,
