Ever Since She Left Me.


“My morale and love towards you will aspire longevity for you” the words I had written, expecting my mother’s smile and to give her strength for a life when she was suffering from cancer. She endured the pain that gave her endless sufferings, and as her situation became complicated I had to overcome many obstacles without her guidance along with my father, who became my mother as well as my father. I were left behind with many challenges after her passing away. However, I am still continuing my life patiently, bearing all the struggles in the life continuing my higher education abroad.
My mother passed away at her 45th age due to a serious breast cancer. She was the strength in my family, beside my father always. Furthermore, she was a loving mother to two daughters and one son. As a result of her weakness because of the illness , she became paralyzed and she spent most of her time in the hospital bed. Every effort of us collapsed when she left us on 22nd September 2007, leaving behind many challenges for us without her guidance.
I was left behind with challenges to overcome without a mother. We had to transform our lives in to a new era without her. We stood as faded flowers in our home as my father despaired about the future of his three children. But then he stood as a full-blooded father to make our future bright by becoming our mother. I, too had overcome many responsibilities as the eldest daughter and a sister. Furthermore, I had to look after my younger sister and brother because they were too young at the age of my mother’s passing away. Meanwhile, I was ready to face my advanced level examinations and my father took over all my duties and encouraged me to face the exam with confidence. However , I completed my Higher secondary school education with good A/L examination results. Fortunately, I received a scholarship from the Asian University to complete my higher studies therefore I moved to Bangladesh for the next chapter of my educational life.
All over, I am proud to be a daughter of an adorable mother and a father.
