Ami was not there but Dad is here! A random but important part of my life diary
My trip to US was purely a family visit. Since my mom passed away and my Dad moved to US I so wanted to see him, hug him and tell what if Ami is gone you are still there and I can feel Ami around you, I can smell her fragrance – a soft lilac scent in your old spice too, I can see her smile through your smile.
What if Ami is gone at least I have you to talk about her, to talk about us. Even when he was laughing with us , his eyes were still finding Ami. Even when he is telling us old stories about our childhood and about himself; Ami is still in all those stories, he has created a whole aura of her around him.
The moment I landed my brother’s house and I hugged Abu where he mentioned; today he’s alone to welcome me because Ami is gone for life and I wanted to tell him what if Ami is not there, you are there.
The whole trip, I was happy, to be part of small things from making his breakfast to dozing off in his bed for naps. I understand today: you are never old to sleep in your Parents’ bed. You are never old to get their one hug to soothe you.
My last day with Abu before leaving for Germany. I want to see him again soon what If Ami is gone Abu is here and I want to make most of this time together.
What is your special memory with your parents?
