I Will Always Remind You

I’ll always remember the mornings you crawled into my bed in the dark to hold you before school. How you would cling on and hold me back.

I know that you won’t remember as I do, but I promise to always remind you.

I’ll always remember how long it took to master teaching you how to ride a bike and how long it has taken me to teach you about being brave. Especially when it comes to riding the bike.

How patient I can be because it was you who made me brave, you who made me wait. (Seriously, youre so slow!)

I’ll hear your belly laugh someday and remember all the tickles that I gave you and be reminded of the goofy-smiling mama with a messy bun that I was, who loved to play with you, and who you so dearly loved to play with.

How changed I am forever, because it was YOU who made me fun.

I know that you won’t remember as I do, but I promise to always remind you.

I’ll always remind you of the days all you ever wanted was me, because today I understand that all I ever needed was you.

In a world where I had to grow up so quickly and work so hard to survive, I finally found someone who shows me how to make-believe.

And how to dream. How to be bigger than the circumstances that made me. I won’t forget that the first time I got to be little myself, that I got to be little with you.

I know that you won’t remember as I do, but I promise to always remind you.

I’ll always remind you about the magic we felt under the fireworks at Cinderella’s castle at Disney. Or how we held each other tight on our first ever flight through the sky to get there.

I’ll always remember how I came alive when I had you, how I have been so alive ever since.

You might not always remember like I do, but I always will, and no matter how big you get, I will always love you.

I promise to always remind you.
