Sometimes

Sometimes I cannot believe that you are mine.
Sometimes I wonder what I have done to be this fortunate to deserve you.
Sometimes when you’re asleep, I gaze at you in admiration.
Sometimes something you said makes me smile long after you have gone.
Sometimes I just long to have your arms around me and feel your cheeks against mine.
Sometimes the wisdom in your words takes me by complete surprise.
Sometimes I wonder if you really need me at all, but I know that I need you badly.
Sometimes when I don’t want to face the world, the thought of you keeps me going.
Sometimes I want to go to a place where nothing else matters and I come to you.
Sometimes when you hug me, nothing else matters but just the two of us.
Sometimes I wonder if you are an old soul living in a very young body.
Sometimes I marvel at how the years flew with you.
And just sometimes( once a year) I get to wish you a WONDERFUL Birthday.

Happy Birthday my darling Purvi. You mean more than the world to me.
(My daughter turns 8 today)
