Letting You Go

Sincere apology to all the readers of this blog, for I am still in need of writing down my emo-ness. I know I should have, but I just couldn't, to stop having doubt and being annoying.

I watch a video clip titled "Daddy, You Can Let Go." I realised that freedom is the most dangerous gift. One may risk loosing the dearest someone who deserves this precious gift. But that's in the case when my concept of love got all wrong.

To love someone, we must give them our faith. There could be many moments that we cannot see with our eyes, or tough with our hands. But if hearts are sincere, we will be brave enough to tell them: I trust you. And loving them is a deafening silent fact.

When a dad lets go of his little girl on the bike from his hands, he isn't 100% sure his angel will do perfectly fine with the sudden surge of freedom. But he believes it's right to let go, so that she can be a stronger lady whom he grows to love even more. When a dad gives his princess away on the wedding day, he wants to believe that she chooses the right man for her life, if becoming a wife for the man she loves is what is best for her.

Now that the girl has the wings to fly high, she moves on, but doesn't move away. She turns her head and smiles at her dad as she paddles on. She comes back to her dad when he lies on the hospital bed with life-support tubes inserted all over him. It's the last time her dad has to hang on to her, because it's time for her dad to let go of her. For she's ready to take on the world, as how her daddy expected her to when he first let go of her on her bike, to kiss the sweet breeze of growing up.

Because love binds souls together, doesn't it?

I love you. I'll try to let you go, but not to give up on you. There will be many moments in future I cannot see with my eyes or touch with my hands. But you will know my heart says: I trust you.

Promise me that I shall see myself in you when you've grown up, will you?

Sometimes the hardest part about being a parent is knowing when to let go. I don't have personal experience since I'm not a parent yet, but I've seen that trend everywhere I go.

Hey Mike, thanks for dropping by :) yeah, it's hard to know when to let go. Sometimes even if we knew it, we can't really see ourselves let them go either. sigh..
