Unlocking the Hearts


Print
There is something hidden behind the doors. And she always yearned to know what’s inside. Curiously, she asked her mom.

“Mother, why is this door always locked? What’s inside? Why don’t you ever let me in and discover stuff? I know you and father secretly keep things, when I’m not around”

“So many questions in one go my child! My girl has really grownup”

“Mother! Don’t change the subject. You have to tell me, today”

And there she stood, unlocking the door, flabbergasted at the sight in front of her! It was a room full of memories, pictures, toys, games.. but none of it belonged to her. Then whose stuff was it? She had lost an elder sibling- a sister, when she was born. She never knew her, just heard name. That’s it.

It was all the stuff that her parents kept maintaining all these years, secretly keeping a gift on every birthday. Of course, this won’t bring their daughter back, but it gave them a little peace of mind.
She was in tears. She decided to unlock.. the door, the memories, their hearts, everything! And it will be like the other rooms in the house, with all the same stuff that belonged to her sister.

  2. That is sad. At some point they need to let go of the past and celebrate the living.

  3. That was so so sad. Letting go is hard - specially when the memories are of a child. But I'm glad they had another one.
