A Message From A Father To His Daughter.

I fear for you from a traditional man who does not memorize the date of your first meeting and the day that you stumbled together and fell in love. He does not care about your birthday and does not sing to you “happy birthday ..” on the pretext that his voice is not beautiful…

I fear for you from another man who does not care about your attachment to small details and your passion for paper letters. He does not care about your myths that you believe in and makes fun of them, nor does your laugh arouse happiness in his heart. My little girl, I fear for you someone who sees you as a body and a machine. One who will not address your mind or act on your advice and not engage in political discussions with you about literature, history and religion …

He does not kiss your forehead before he goes out in the morning, does not shower you with his long embrace and does not close his eyes when he inhales your perfume. I fear for you from a fool. When friends ask him about you and he answers “the mother of the children”!

Someone who does not share your work and household duties, that you grow old and roses wither in your guts, and that he completely forgets the anniversary of your marriage . He does not dance with you to your favorite song, he does not stare into your eyes and smile, and he does not let you see the locks of the sun sleeping on your shoulders …

Your presence with a discreet person scares me. He does not lead you to what worries him and raises fear in himself, does not reveal and throws his head between your hands, to forget the weight and ugliness of this world …

One who does not bother picking roses for you, inevitably he does not know that purple tulips are your favorite type. He does not go out to walk with you at night. He gets angry running in the rain and sleeps as soon as he sits on the bed. He does not ask you about the details of your boring day, does not listen carefully, sees in your dreams unreasonable absurdity, and does not seek to please you by helping you achieve any of them. What terrifies me is the idea that he scares you, that he screams in your face and does not tear his heart with your childish features, that he does not make his life upset by your crying and sees in apologizing from you a diminution of his manhood …

Oh my life, I fear another man for you. One who does not make you feel like you are the only female on this planet .. His safe haven from the cruelty and misery of this world….

One who does not love you the way you deserve. ~Rosaline
