While this is the happiest day of my life, my eyes still well up with tears. Not because I’m going away to another house, not because I have to now learn the ways of my new family, not because I will now be someone’s wife but because I know your heart is heavier than mine now. I’m not nervous to start a new family, I’m nervous to see how you and Maa would re-start yours without me.
I will always be your daughter first and any other relationship comes second to me. The world might say 1000 different things, but in my heart, you will always come first. But you will have to share me Daddy, and I know you know that.
Even though you were delighted at the thought of my wedding to the love of my life, I know you held back your tears when you said Yes. But you should know that, the man that I now pronounce husband is a lot like you. If you expect him to always keep me happy, then a reality check for you Daddy, we will have fights, you will receive weeping phone calls from me, and we will have our fair share of troubles. But worry not, you have made me a strong, independent woman and what’s life without a few bumps in the road. I’ve learnt to take everything in my stride looking at you, learning from you.
