My sweet angel. My sweet baby. I’m so sorry I let your father coerce me into getting rid of you. Every night my soul is sad. I can’t eat. I can’t sleep properly. You are on my mind all day. This Friday, 1/22/21, makes a month since you’ve been gone. And it still feels like yesterday. Daddy left me to deal with all this pain alone and even though he’s distant, has still continued to make things hell for me. I think about how much I wanted to give you a life I never had and how I still do. But you’re gone now. Daddy, his friends and his family keep telling me “You were only seven weeks.” “Plenty of other women had abortions.” “Get over it.” And so many other painful things. But it doesn’t take away the fact that you were there. I felt the changes in my body with you there I loved oh so much. I still feel you near me. I won’t ever be able to fully forgive myself for losing you. I wish you were still here. My sweet darling, I love you more than words can say. More than anyone on this earth. I’ve had dreams about you and sometimes to fill the void even for a few seconds, I’ll hold an empty blanket and close my eyes and pretend you’re there. Or I’ll close my eyes and just think that I’m walking along the shore of a dark beach, holding you. There’s so many painful words I can express and say… I’ve prayed and wanted to die for the past month just to be with you. I’m so sorry, hayati. I’m so sorry. Please forgive mommy. I love you more than words or my heart can ever express. I love you infinitely… انا احبك
