  • When we first met it was as if the sun rose for the very first time. You held me to your breast and the rhythm of your heart was already ingrained within my own. I suckled you and I knew that I was being fed the very essence of life itself. You held me, you gazed upon me in silence, and you let your touch translate your thoughts unto me. From then on I understood that not one other soul could love me as you did. Ever. At that very instant I began to miss you even when you were before me because not having you could mean not having my own breath.

    And when they snipped me away from you, I did not weep because I already knew that nothing, not even death, could separate us. It was clear that I would return but that one day we would need to say goodbye.

    But at that moment it did not matter because I was just a mere babe enveloped by all of you and life was something that seemed like forever. You, mother, taught me all I would need to know about love the moment you first looked into my eyes.
