I am 6 years old, sitting and playing on my brand new Nintendo NES my parents brought me, Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros 3 are the best two games so far, Ice Climber is somewhat fun too.

I can play this forever!

I am 9 years old, sitting on my new Computer with a program called Windows 98, Internet Explorer is Another program used to explore the internet it is as fun as my NES and Sega,

though i tend to switch to my Computer, NES and Sega just to balance them out. My parents are the best!

I am 70 years old, i was cleaning up my attic when i found a photo album of my parents and the people i loved, cousins, grandpa, grandma all those great people, now gone.

I looked further and found my old Nintendo NES, Sega and a Little package that says WINDOWS 98 UPGRADE on it. I tried plugging in my NES to see if its still working, it didn't.

I tried to do the same with the Sega, same result.

I then tried to put Windows 98 upgrade CD to my computer, turns out its incompatible with my current system as Windows 10 doesen't work right with older systems.

I however found a note inside the box in the attic where it was a letter from my late mother and dad.

It said: Dear son, by the time you are reading this, you would have grown up and moved out of my and your mothers house, while you were packing your things into my car i now gave you,

i managed to slip a box into your car while you were inside the house checking if you've forgotten anything,

inside this box you will find your most used things me and your mother brought you just to see our little boy happy, you would play with these gadgets all day long.

When we found these things lying around, we got our hearts warm up thinking back to when you were just a Little boy,

so we took the time and packed them down for you to remember along with a photo album.

Soon you would grow up and play less and less with them until you moved onto newer things, you would usually say that me and your mother didn't know you that well and that you don't need us anymore,

i can understand this as teenagers tend to grow out of their parents love...

I still however want you to know that no matter where you are or what happens to us or you, me and your mother still love our little boy... goodbye son, i hope you will find happiness someday."

...I broke into tears after reading that, how could i have been so blind? My parents wasted alot of money on games, gadgets and toys just to make me happy and have a memorable childhood.

And as i grew up i would accuse them for being bad parents? My heart would almost burst as i thought more of this.

My own parents loved and took care of me, just for me to break their hearts in the end.

My father was a wise man with wise words, my mother was like a Guardian angel, always making me smile at the hardest times or whenever i was sad.

Things don't last forever. In the end, everything dies out.

My parents have lived their life, and died to be heart broken by their own son at the age of 19. I regret those actions to this day...

However, nothing lasts forever...

Forever...
