Aishani - My Beloved Daughter

"BELOVED, YOU ARE MY SISTER,YOU ARE MY DAUGHTER,YOU ARE MY FACE,YOU ARE ME.........."Toni Morrison                    

Sweetheart, when I first came to know that you were inside me, there was excitement, an enticement; the feeling of magic and growth inside me. It was the possibility of life growing within that always haunts and delights a young girl as she grows into womanhood. Parts of my fantasy were coming true as the months of pregnancy passed by and when I first felt you move within my womb, it was the sweetest and most memorable sensation of my life. There was life within me. With God’s Grace, I had created you. I couldn't wait for your arrival as I knew that you would change my life forever. 

Aishani, when you were in my arms for the first time and I came face to face with you my little angel, I realized that not only were you my little baby, a woman to be, but also you would be my own unresolved conflicts from the past and my dreams for the future.Being a mother I felt that it’s like a promise from God quite like a spiritual umbilical cord...a link given directly from above which no other relationship can ever have. Holding you close to me, I felt there was a magical closed circle, the miraculous sense of bonding that only a mother and child can feel.  

As you are now growing up into a beautiful young lady, I know your world is different from the one in which I had at your age. I am trying my best in coming to terms with it. But always remember that even if you feel I am wrong I will understand what you want. Baby, you are my daughter, my friend by choice, a blessing for me from above. I love you with all my heart. I am your keeper till you are mature enough to keep yourself. I will hold your hand a little, but your heart, forever...

YOU ARE AN EXTENSION OF ME!   I want to give you trust and stability. You can count on me for all the things that matters most to you. I have dreams for you, great dreams.  I want you to look at the stars, for, there is one for you and I will reach out for it however hard it may be, so that you get everything you deserve in life. I will protect you, fight for you, love you, hug you, kiss you, hold you, laugh with you, cry with you. But, if you are falling, I will never let you because I will be there to hold you tight. I will always try and look for anything that disturbs you, because I want you to have a better life, a million times better than I ever had.  
Wherever life takes you, even if you don't see me around,don't ever think that I have left you alone. No matter what happens, I'll be there. They say nothing lasts forever but, where you are concerned, Aishani, I am a firm believer in the fact that that you are a gift from God to me, my most precious possession, my greatest asset. I am proud to have you as my daughter. You are the very meaning of my existence on this earth.

From your first breath till my last, I will never stop loving you!

Yes, Alpu, she is the most invaluable gift from God.
