Those invisible kisses on your head

Not a day goes by that I don’t kiss your head

You won’t remember and you won’t know but it’s my little secret,

Every one of those kisses is a moment, a moment of pure innocent love that arrived the day you were born

No bath or shower can ever wash them away

The invisible kisses that form a lasting imprint, that carry with them a meaning that is uncommunicable because it’s power is too great and every day that tally on your little head increases

Every day you become heavier with the weight of love bestowed invisibly on your head

Those kisses are how I communicate when there are no words or I feel like my throat will burst with tears

Know that they made you smile even at 16 weeks old

Know that every single one of them made me feel like the luckiest person in the world

Know that each one says I love you

In the years to come know that they are always there, to protect you, to guide you, to let you know that I love you, that we love you, that you are strong, that you are clever, that you are brave, that you can achieve whatever you set your mind to, that you are powerful beyond all measure, that you are beautiful and that I will always love you

To act as a reminder of how loved you are, how blessed you are, how blessed I am as your mummy

They may be invisible but they are there and even though you won’t know, I will

When times are hard please know that your little head was so covered with love

When you feel like you can’t do it know that each little kiss landed in your heart to make it strong

When you feel like you’re not good enough know that each kiss put an arrow in your armoury

When you feel sad know that each kiss is a positive word

When you feel overwhelmed know that each kiss offered a different perspective

When you feel heartbroken know that each kiss came with a needle and thread to sew you back together

When you feel defeated know that each kiss whispered ‘try again’

When you feel weak know that each kiss says ‘keep going’

But most of all I just want you to know that each kiss came from a place that felt so exposed by love for you that no words will ever be enough

You can never know how much I love you, but I just thought I’d try.............
