The Sea Is Calm Tonight
.The PENCIL said: I'm sorry
.The ERASER said: For what? You haven’t done anything wrong
The PENCIL said: I'm sorry, because you get hurt because of me. Every time I make a mistake, you're there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.
The ERASER said: That's true, but I really don't mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though I know I'll be gone one day and you'll replace me with a new one, I'm actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate to see you sad.
I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational. Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are like the pencil.
They're always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way, they get hurt, and become smaller… older, and eventually pass on.
Though children will eventually find someone new (spouse), but parents are still happy with what they do for their children, and will always hate to see their precious ones worrying, or being sad.
All my life, I've been the pencil. And it pains me to see the eraser that is my parents, getting smaller and smaller each day. For I know that one day, all that I'm left with, would be eraser shavings an memories of what I used to have.
