Viết thư bằng tiếng Anh cho bố mẹ
Mom, I am proud to say that I am a mature bird now, I already had my own wings to fly with, and I known how to make ends meet. But you would never understand that!
When I was 13, no matter how hard I tried to convince you I wanna study abroad after finishing my secondary school, you resisted saying "NO". The reason was just as simple as your response: "I can't let you out of my hands"
When I was standing at the crossroad of my life making a choice: University entrance exam or oversea study, I chose the former, as you wished.
When I told you that I got the acceptance letter from my current university, the sadness in your eyes, I could see it crystally.
When I was at the airport waiting for my flight to Ams and leaving everything behind, you did not breathe a word, and you bursted into tears when it was boarding time.
Believe it or not, it was the first time I ever seen a strong woman cried, you even didn't when my grandpa passed away!
Started my life in Amsterdam with the only things I had: English and your money, no relatives no friends no Vietnamese no help nobody and nothing more than that, I promised myself I gotta be big and different, just to prove my choice to you.
When I got that scholarship, the first thing I did was shouting of joy with you through the phone, but my heart was frozen when you said: "Actually I didn't ask you for it". "But I did it!" - I said. "So keep it for yourself". Mom, I know your heart is not as glacial as your words, but people said harsh words would kill sombody, why you did so?
When I shower you the necklace I bought to you, which mounts to almost my salary, and what you did was ignoring and continue to enjoy the movie...
I know until the end of this life, I would never satisfy you, though you're not a Perfectionist. I always feel I have to chase you up for you keep refusing receiving everything from me, WHY? You have sacrified more than half of your life for your children, which is more than enough, and now it's my turn.
Mom, no no need to say anything, I'm more than aware your invaluable love for me. But please, from now on Mom, let me fly with my wings and accept my love for you!
