A husband’s letter
Hello princess, it’s day 1241 since we had a meaningful conversation, I’m really missing them, or you, or your sweet charming and soothing voice, I’m not sure which is which, but I’m certain it has something to do with you, or it’s just that I miss you altogether.
Lately, in ur absence, everything has been crazy down here. kids are flying all over the house like Spiderman as they try out temple run, I’m playing fruit ninja with vegetables in the kitchen, I’ve also learnt how to cook, or rather I’m still learning, which makes me regret not taking your cooking lessons seriously🤭🙈
Our babies are also growing faster, can you imagine! little Ella learnt how to speak properly, she keeps on asking for you and looking at your pictures in their bedroom, she wonders what you look like now, probably an Angel.
And Valerie, well Val has always been Val, she changed a lot over the past few years, she keeps on checking at the door… the door…😞 , she’s never gotten over the fact of things as they are now, she still imagines you walking in with presents for her birthday… It’s her wish, deep down she’s hurting, Ella doesn’t feel that coz she didn’t see a lot of you, but I understand Val’s pain, it’s a pain she and I share…
You know, I recall our last date, it brings back lots of memories btw. It’s the day I realized what a baby you were, how vulnerable and fragile you’d been, and yet stood your solid ground to defend what was right.
I recall you in that red dress, all sitting majestically with a crescent smile I can never forget.
I also miss the long walks we used to take, the late night chats we used to have, and the pillow fights, to be honest, it’s not just the date, but, each moment we shared together. I recall all the days we had to ourselves.
Each day that goes by, I never ceases to imagine what life would be with you by my side. Oh, you know, there’s one thing you never got to tell me, wether I was still that hot guy with a hard confident look you met in the first place, but I believe you can’t tell me that now, at least not yet… And I’m not even sure when.
If it wasn’t for anything, for our little girls, I’d make ways to come join you, to be by your side, for 3 years away from you has been hurting… It’s been weary and I’ve never had the courage to move on, I still want to cling onto our precious moments, I know you’ll definitely be against it, it’s what you always told me, but how can I?
Once you asked me what I’ll tell them about you when they are grown, what I’ll tell them about you, and this has got me thinking a lot of late. I’ve been thinking about what response I’d have given you then when I kept quiet, when I ran out of that room in fear…
Well, this is what I’d tell them. I’d tell our daughters that their mum was a courageous woman who never faltered her stand. Their mum was an incredible woman who was willing to offer the whole world for them, for the people she loved and cared about. I’ll tell our daughters… Not a single day went by without you checking on them in their sleep, or silently waking up in the night to watch me snore my lungs out😂🙈
When I look back, I’ll tell my daughters that before heaven stole you from us, you were that lucky charm, that one Angel I met who changed your life forever. You were my one and only special woman. I’ll tell my daughters, you were my special little princess.
Yours, Prince Charming ✍
