When you were born and rushed off to NICU, there were a few words I could not for the life of me get out of my head. They buzzed round and round in my mind, repeating over and over again.
They were from a story that I read when I was a child. Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. A story I wish I could have read to you.
I still am not sure why they popped into my head then, but they have come to mean a lot to me.
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living,
My baby you’ll be.”
For me that is so true. You will always be my baby, my sweet little boy.
I didn’t know it at the time, but when I googled the story, originally it was a song that Robert Munsch used to sing. He and his wife had two stillborn babies.
I will always wonder what it would have been like to snuggle up in bed and read to you. And when you got a bit older, to have you read to me.
It’s just another plan that will never come to be. It breaks my heart.
I just so wish you were here.
I’ll love you forever and always,
