Because, I love you.. #writebravely #writetribeproblogger

I remember, those tiny little hands 

Wrapping around my neck 

In the night so dark,

Keeping me awake and numb. 


I remember, humming lullaby 

Holding the tiny you 

Hoping that you would sleep on cue, 

With exhaustion that never said bye. 


I remember, putting you down 

In the crib, with bated breath 

Standing still beside, as would a rock,

Hoping that you sleep to catch my breath. 


I remember, thinking that someday I would hope 

That you were here to disturb my sleep 

That this moment of exhaustion doesn’t matter, 

For I love you with all my heart.

    1. At the end of the day, every parent feels the same love and warmth toward their child, no matter how difficult the day had been, right? Happy to have you here, Mitadaur. Thanks for the comment. 😀

    1. As they grow up, we begin to get this feeling. Right now, I don’t have a moment to myself. In a few years I’m sure I would wish to go back to today. Thanks, Lata. 😀

  1. This is so lovely Vinitha! It took me all the way back to when I was the one singing the lullaby, waiting next to the crib… Beautifully worded.

  2. That’s touching. A lovely expression of what every parents feels for their child. No matter how tough the day, how lousy the arguments (I have tweens, remember?) the love never fades.

  3. Vinitha, so true. Your poem brought back sweet memories of my babies when they were little. Even with grown up kids, the feeling of love and warmth is the same. Loved your poem.

What do you think? Please share! :)
