There would be those days, when your spirit would grip your chest, forcing you to stay in bed. But, attending to those negative thoughts would be futile. So you’ll have to get up.
There would be those nights, when your worn out eyes will force you to shut off those doors. But, that cold moon outside your bedroom window will not let you sleep.
There would be those moments, when a knife would twist itself deep into your soul. But, the beating heart and the throbbing head, would keep you alive.
When you’d become a part of this world, your little eyes would sparkle just like those stars around the moon. Your soft hands would hold my finger and feet would step onto mine, while learning to walk. Your anklet would make sweet and melodic sound, when you will cling to my shadow…
And then you will grow up.
Maybe, I’d not be there to wipe off those tears. But the handkerchief bearing the embroidery of your name, would still be there.
Maybe, my tender arms would not be there to provide you warmth and comfort. But the blanket we’ve shared since you were a baby, would still be there.
Maybe, I’d not be able to answer your call or my voice won’t reach your ears. But, all the voice notes I’ve been recording since a long time, would be there in a folder on the desktop.
Maybe, when you will wear that white dress, I’d not be there to look at you. But, all those clothes we’ve bought together since you’ve become a part of my life, would be there in suitcase kept in my room.
Forgive me dear, if I’d get late from work on fewer occasions. But, the dinner would be there in the microwave and the CDs of our favourite movies would be there in the shelf.
No matter where you are, I’ll always be there to support and empower you. My love, you will never be alone.
