You won’t remember the way I walked a penguin walk while I carried you in my belly, getting scared at the tiniest jerks.
You won’t remember the way we felt your kicks, got excited and screamed out of joy everytime you turned inside me.
You won’t remember the way your dad put up a brave front that night and hid all his fears, telling me it was all going to be alright.
You won’t remember the way you looked right at us after you were born like we had known each other all our lives.
You won’t remember the trembling hands with which we held you for the first time, pulled you against ourselves and marvelled at our creation.
You won’t remember how we felt you completed our life with your smile, your presence and filled our hearts with joy we had never known in life.
You won’t remember the way we laughed with all the silly things you did and the funny voices you made..somehow it all made sense to us always.
You won’t remember how we brushed the hair off your face and loved the way you looked at us. In those few moments, we could feel our souls connect.
You won’t remember the tickle sessions we had, and how we always cheated so we could hold you close for longer and cover your tiny little face with kisses…
You won’t remember how we kissed you goodnight every night and kept looking at you for hours before dozing off ourselves.
You won’t remember all the times we cried when you were in pain, and how we promised ourselves that we would shield you from every pain forever.
You won’t remember all the times we went to bed at night feeling so much of fear. Are we doing it right.. Have we done enough for him. Are we the parents he needs to grow up with?
You won’t remember the way our heart broke and grew a little bigger each time you passed a milestone.
You won’t remember the way we would hold your little feet in our hands, imagining how much bigger than our own feet they will one day grow, and how we will have to let you go.
You won’t remember, but we will. And we’ll hold these memories in our heart for all of us…
PS – First post after so many months… Because I’m busy creating memories for us !!!!
Busy seeing you grow from an infant to a happy child…
