The One©

You were meant to be it
The One
That would give meaning to my life

Others are blessed with your being-ness
Not I

In all my childhood dreams
You would be there
To hold you

To make you feel safe
To cuddle you when you cried
To cradle you when you are hurt

We would play together
I would teach you about life and the world
Take you places far and wide

One day you would have some of your own
And they would grow so you too would be blessed
As I held them in my arms

Yet life never brought you along
Some sort of physical defect
And now I miss you all the more

You were meant to be the one
A child to love and treasure
But you never came

    My threat is always to leave mine at the doorstep of anyone thinking, dreaming of having One of their own…that should scare you. 🙂 Yet what is written would be exactly what I would feel if I didn’t have my lot. Thank you for reminding me of what I have and I shall bake many more cupcakes today for them … 🙂 Beautiful Poem which will be read to my Ones tonight.

    You are indeed blessed. It is great to know that every once in a while
    what I write is meaningful. Thank you for your sharing.
