If only you were here


This post is written for 100 Words on Saturday at WriteTribe

The prompt, If only you were here, is provided by Kajal Kapur of Rainbow Hues.


I had selected names for you without even knowing if you were a boy or a girl.

I had purchased two dresses and a feeding bottle that are still safely locked in my wardrobe.

I used to jot down everything so you read them sometime later when I am not there with you.

Never did I know that you were not going to complete 15 weeks in my womb.

Though I miss you in every breath, the pain is much lesser now. The guilt remains though.

If only you were here, we would have celebrated your 10th birthday this month.
