I apologise as sometimes due to stressful day at work, I came home with a frown on my forehead, and forget to smile to you.
I apologise as because I was tired, I slept early with you tugging at my shirt, requesting for a story time.
I apologise when I rush to work because I was late, leaving you crying at the door.
I apologise for raising my voice to you due to impatience, when I know you are only a child.
I apologise for not being able to cook all your food and having to rely on instant Heinz, when i know I should.
I apologise for not obliging to play when you requested, but do some unimportant thing instead.
I apologise for not being an understanding, compassionate, calm and reasonable mother at ALL times, but let my emotions rule my actions.
I apologise as I was busy being a working adult, I neglect the time when you will only be a child once.
I apologise for not putting you No 1 on my priority list, when you are supposed to be on the top of the chart.
I apologise for all the above, and I really hope that you would understand when you are all grown up.
I hope you will know and always remember that despite my weaknesses, I do really love you very much,
That I would trade my life for you
That whatever happens, you are the greatest gift from Allah to me, and I hope I will do my best in bringing you up according to His blessings,
And InshaAllah, may we endure the hardships in this world for a better life in Jannah.
