The Music Within


The best ever music in my life - not something that I listened to with my ears, but it was something that I felt with my heart - when I had a little someone growing inside me. The feeling itself of bearing a tiny life within me was musical.

I felt I was warmly held in those tender fists floating in the womb because my thoughts and words were always answered by the little creature in some way. Our conversations had a rhythm that cannot be explained. Another life that fluttered inside me which tried to claw its way out, just wanting to meet the world - heights of joy and an overwhelming feeling of love! I do reminisce about those nine wonderful months and feel blissful about it.

As I write this, my little boy… I imagine you as a man, handsome and righteous, sitting on the sea shore letting the waves wash your feet while you read this age-old note. I will be there too, older and happier, sitting next to you with your dad, watching the big red sun touch the horizon as we listen to the music of togetherness on that beautiful summer evening.
