Too beautiful too forget...
"You don't forget the face of the person who was your last hope" ~ Suzanne Collins
My dearest Akif,
It is Ramadhan.
The month of fasting.
The month of giving.
The month of compassion.
The month of forgiveness.
For Mama, it is the month where I will see you every night without fail.
You are always dressed in green. Always smiling. Sitting on my lap. Hugging my neck.
How I cannot wait to close my eyes every night so we can meet.
How real it feels, being there with you.
Until it is time for you to leave. And I struggle to let go of your hand before you go back to where you belong.
And you look at me smiling. And I muster up every single fibre of my being, strength and courage to smile back before you disappear. And my heart breaks, even in my dreams. I crumble.
And another day has begun.
I found the love that I knew I would miss.
I miss you little one.
Thank you Almighty for giving me a chance to see my son. Thank you.
