My Birthday Letter to My Princess

I still remember, 12 years ago, when I held you in my arms the first time you came in our lives. It seems like it was just yesterday. And now I wake up to find you all grown up. Whenever I close my eyes, I see the image of you when you were still a tot. Your world revolved around me and mine to yours. We were together, inseparable, a tandem, mom and daughter, just you and I. You held on to me for support. You always called out my name when I leave the room. You were my biggest fan. Until now...

Time flies my sweet princess. I can no longer hold you tight because I don't want to suffocate you but in my heart I wish I can just keep you close. I need to let you spread your wings baby girl. You need to discover the world outside your shell. Slowly as the days go by, I am seeing you as a different person. No longer the baby I held in my arms 12 years ago but a young and blossoming lady.

My princess, you have grown up. And today is your 12th birthday, your papa and I wish you good health and a long and happy life. We want to keep you close but I guess we can't do that. You're growing up and you need space to be the kind of person you want to be. We may get in the way sometimes if we feel you will get hurt or be heart broken over someone or something. That's what parents do, they protect their young.

So, as you venture to your new found phase in life, please bear in mind that our love goes with you where ever you go. There is no boundaries for that kind of love. You will feel that too when you become a parent someday.

Happy Birthday my dearest sweet princess. Your Papa and I love you so much.

Love always,
