I know I'm only allowed to call you mother, you say it's a matter of respect, but just once I'd like to call you mom without a stutter..
You gave me life, which I truly appreciate, even if I can be a big burden.
You made such sacrifices for me, you almost lost your job because of me.
I hadn't the slightest clue that I had done something wrong. I hope you forgive me for that, I can't be the 'perfect' daughter you've always wanted, but the least I can do is try.
I picked a reasonable job for my future, I chose writing to be a hobby, I became independent.
Although what I do for you isn't always of my best interest, it's worth it to see you proud to speak about me to your colleagues.
I hope that one day you'll be proud enough to call me your daughter in front of others rather than call me by name.
It's a big wish, and rather hopeless wish, but it's my wish.
You spoil me very rotten, but that's not what I want, all I want is for you to hug me and tell me you love me, and not just for show, but for both me and you.
I love you to furthest star in the solar system.
Yours truly, Melody
