Gift by Mom

A mirror with a wooden frame has a face of a man who is lost somewhere.  There is a feeling of hatred in those brown eyes. He opens the tap to wash the dirt of his sins from his face but the flow of water made  shows him the face of a women, he loved a lot. He washes his face and goes to his room. He was lying on his bed when after some time he shouted mom! Coffee !
Minutes passed but coffee didn’t arrived. He shouted again, What the hell mom ! You don’t have time to make some coffee for me. Ok fine then I’ll make it myself while quoting those words he goes in kitchen to find nothing but silence. Then he realised his mom is no more with him to shower her love.

Next morning,
He receives a call from his cousin.
Cousin: Brother, How are you holding up ?
Him: I’m doing good. How about you ? Why did you called me ?
Cousin: All good, I called you to wish you Happy birthday brother. I’ve a gift for you left by your mother. It’s in your mother’s cupboard.

*Phone cuts*

He opens the cupboard to find a letter by his mom.

the letter read,

Dear Ritvik,
If you are reading this letter then probably I have left you to live with my husband in the heaven. I hope I deserve the place in heaven? Well, even if i don’t i will fight my way into heaven because I can’t live without your father and you know he’ll be for sure in the heaven. I hope you are doing well son, though I am not there to hold you in my arms. Wish I could’ve stayed more with you but I was tired and couldn’t face the heat anymore. Though you brought the AC but never allowed me to come in your room.
What is it that you hide in your room and always shouted when I entered  in your absence ? But always ask me to give you the coffee in bed.  You might had been busy working hard behind that screen and that’s the reason you never went to the market for my stuff. I can understand you have achieved so much it had been hard for you to take out some time for me out of your valuable schedule to pick my call. But son, I only worry If you’ve had your food or not. It hurts me receiving the text – “I am busy, will talk to you later”. You were busy to pick a call but had time to post a picture on Facebook ?  From your childhood till my last breath I’ve only wished for your success and happiness. I know I was annoying in my old age and its tough for you to handle me but at least you could have tried. But you didn’t and it hurt. You know what’s hard part is the memories of your childhood that flashes when you ignores me. It strikes me I loved you when you was annoying. You failed when you were learning new things but I never took a step back until you got perfect in that. But why do you run away if I found hard to understand those new technologies. It was hard to me like it was hard for you to walk in your childhood.

I know there had been many times when you regret after shouting at me. You never hurt me intentionally, but you do! It’s hard to take all that pain with me. That’s why I penned down these feelings for you so that when you goes in your old age and experience same things you’ll be prepared like I was not. You are my beautiful baby and I am not angry at you but I am in pain. 4599711705.jpg
My beautiful son,
I know you love me a lot but somewhere you care for your social world more. I don’t mind you give preference to your social world but how hard was it if you would have carried me alongside. Now don’t grind your teeth and wipe off those tears. I can’t see you in pain. I am happy out here with you father just missing you a lot. Son, Remember one thing always value the things when you have them because you won’t even realise and they’ll be gone in the blink of eye. You know you have my blessings and love with you. Now, Go and live your life happily without any regrets because regret can destroy you. Promise me you’ll marry soon and have a son. Teach him the things i failed to teach you.
I love you a lot my beautiful son.

Yours Mom 🙂 :* (I hope I made the right smiley son )

He cried his heart out and fell on ground !
