I Loved You Enough

I loved you enough to ask where you were going,
with whom, and what time you would be home.
I loved you enough to be silent and let you
discover that your new best friend was a creep.
I loved you enough to stand over you for
2 hours while you cleaned your room,
a job that should have taken 15 minutes.
I loved you enough to let you see anger,
disappointment, and tears in my eyes.
I loved you enough to let you assume the
responsibility for your actions even when the
penalties were so harsh they almost broke my heart.
But most of all, I loved you enough to say
NO when I knew you would hate me for it.

I found the poem somewhere on tumblr. And someday I might give it to my future children. Because I want them to love me the way I love my mum. 

my lovely mum

Once upon a time, mum insisted on knowing where we were at all times. She had to know who our friends were and what we were doing with them. She insisted that if we said we would be gone for an hour, we would be gone for an hour or less. We had to wash the dishes, make the beds, learn to cook, vacuum the floor, do laundry, empty the trash and all sorts of chores. She always insisted on us telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. By the time we were teenagers, she could read our minds and had eyes in the back of her head. Mum didn't let our friends just hoot at the gate when they drove up. They had to come up to the door so she could meet them. 

Now that most of us have left home, got education and siblings and I are really grateful for having our mom. She's our 1st teacher and the best one. Without her, we wouldn't know how to deal with things now. So we have planned a special celebration for her tomorrow. I hope she'll love it. ^^
