The Things Better Left Said

Daily Prompt: Back to the Future:

 A service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future. To whom would you send something, and what would you write?

For me, this prompt had endless possibilities, but what it primarily made me think of were the things that I wanted to express that I might fail at expressing now. Because sometimes, just the gestures aren’t enough.


Dear Mum,
How are you these days? Are you still here? I hope you are.
Things are a bit tough at the moment; does it get better?
Are you well? Happy?
There are so many things I could ask, but I suppose I’ll find out the answers eventually.
So I’ll just say here that I love you. Because sometimes, I feel I don’t show you often enough that I do.
Thank you for always being by my side.

With love,
Your daughter
