You are going to be 8 years! and to be true it is unbelievable. I am somewhere still in denial that I have a son who is half my height and will be 10 in 2 years! Woooah !! makes me realise that I am also getting old 🙂
I still remember the day you were born. I was so scared to hold you and every moment I would glance at you just to make sure you were breathing and not crying. You were so fragile and small that I panicked and always felt, I will drop you!
I would click so many pictures of you in the same pose – only to wonder why did I click 50 pictures of you sleeping !!
I have grown with you, as a mother and as an individual. I have seen you struggle, I have seen you win. I have seen you angry and I have got annoyed at the hundreds of questions you ask daily !!
I just want to let you know that you are loved by Mumma and Papa alike. You will always be our handsome, intelligent and rocking boy – even when you turn 38 years. ( there is no way you are getting free from us any soon 😉
I will always be there for you as you enter into your teen years to help you as you struggle through your studies or when you have your first heartbreak or when you step out for your first interview or may be when you will be disappointed with your failures. May be you will not like me to hug and kiss you so often as we do now, and so I cherish all the hugs, smiles and kisses.
Be what you want to be – I don’t want you to a doctor, enginñer, a pilot or be an IAS officer. I want you to be someone who is happy and content with his career choice. Do it because you want to .. because it will make you happy.
The only thing I expect from you is to be with your sister, help her and guide her. After we are gone, don’t let her feel alone. Try to visit her on all festivals, wish her on her birthday and love her children. We all make mistakes, we are human after all – you will also do some, love all; despite all of it. Never feel bitter towards someone just because they did you bad. Be the greater one, rise above the situation.
Also, respect women. Be gentle and a caring husband and a father. Women are emotional beings and they only need someone to understand them. We women can hide our emotions very well, and so you will never know if the woman in front of you is breaking apart as she passes a smile. Learn to look beyond the beauty of the skin.
I hope when I am gone, and I look down from the heaven above – I see my Agam as a strong headed but a gentle man.
I know you will make me proud! I loved you and will always do. No matter where you go or what you become or what you do. With all my love, God bless you!
