Mothers are someone who give birth to you, after having created you in her womb, nose, eyes, legs, hands! And there are people who are your second mothers and second fathers. Who create your ideologies, philosophies, preferences, frameworks, brinks, limits and boundaries in their wombs, who mold you in their hands, from a pulp of exquisite anonymous dough to name and personality, mere movements of fingers or lips.
Aiman is one to me. My guardian angel. My second love of life. Someone who taught m,e living, smiling, and who’d take my hand and guide me always. Of whom I thought I will always stick by, this however, could not happen. She got married and went off with her prince charming to a happily ever after far far away! and then came June 9th, when Humayoun Bhai messaged me about the baby girl Aiman had just given birth to!
I rushed to see her, I remember acsending the staits, I remember rushing in corridors, I remember turning the handle of he room, hugging aimen and I remember seeing the fragile figure wrapped in blue napkin! Then it all come crashing down. The joy. The Excitement. The intensity of a feeling I cant describe!
I wouldn’t dare hold her in my arms fearng I would break her limb or something but I had looked her, I had savoured the delight of having seen her, I had cried and I had felt her by touching her cheeks with my index finger, and that minute the difference between us ceased to exist, the frail boundary where she ended and I started, blurred. Then, I was all hers. She was all mine!
She was the one child I wanted to see growing up, day by day, second by second, chunk by chunk and bit by bit!
This would never happen. Impossible does exist.
But that wont make my love for her fade away! because she is still the part of someone I so adore, And when you love someone, you just love them. Everything around you turn out to be a relative thing of your loving someone. And you end up listening to your silence with little tears brimming your eyes, reasonless tears. because you’re not sad, you’re not happy, you’re just missing someone you love! and you’re just loving them beyond anything.
May Allah bless you Namra dear!
May Allah bless you 🙂
