Today, you gave me a little sign from heaven. I was on my way home when that Jon Secada’s song played on the cab’s radio.
I haven’t told anyone this before but it was almost the same time this year, well maybe the exact moment, when the same thing happened.
And when I heard that song a year ago, it made me sad to the point of crying. At that time, I attributed it to pregnancy hormones. And nostalgia.
Two and a half weeks later, I lost you.
During my recovery, I was thinking.. A LOT. I guess it’s our normal instinct to make sense of everything by putting together pieces of memories leading up to an event.
And this is what I realized:
This song must have been your way of slowly saying goodbye.
I actually lost you before you hit your 11th week but the doctor’s diagnosis is you stopped growing at 8th.
Around this time last year…
It may just be a coincidence, but I feel it deep in my heart that it’s not.
Here I am a year after– hearing your song again. Our song. But this time, I take it as your way of saying,
Hello! How are you, Mama?
Mama’s doing fine, baby. I am writing this with a smile on my face because I know you’re in a better place now. I hope it’s ok if I chose the song for us. Because you really are my Angel… and your light will always shine.
