I’ve slept upright in a hospital chair next to your cot listening to your shallow breaths and I’ve held you in arms my not knowing if you’ll make it.
I’ve held you down for Doctors and Surgeons and cradled you while your heart and mine were breaking.
I’ve sat up all night with you when you couldn’t sleep through coughing and then I’ve fought to wake you up when it’s time for treatments.
I’ve held your tiny hand for hours on end when I’ve been unable to hold you and I’ve cried more tears and felt more sadness and guilt than I ever thought possible.
This isn’t how it is supposed to be and this is not the life I chose for you.
You are strong and brave and you are above all else a fighter.
No matter what life throws at you, you take it in your stride and you still manage to smile even during the toughest of times.
I want you to be free to live your life unlimited and I want you to do what makes you happy and take risks.
I will forever be in awe of you. Your strength and determination have made me a stronger person.
Never give up that fight or loose that drive and remember I am always here fighting right beside you. Your fight is mine.
You really are a true hero, and best of all you are mine and I know that whatever comes your way you will be just fine.
