A Letter to My Unborn Child

My baby, Ya habiby

I love you with all my heart,

even though you are not here yet.

But in my mind,

You have been conceived,

And have already begun your journey to greatness.

My baby, Ya habiby

I love you with all my heart,

even though you are not here yet.

I dream about all the things that I want to teach you.

All the things that you will learn,

that I will not know.

I pray that you surpass your dear old mother.

My baby, Ya habiby

I love you with all my heart,

even though you are not here yet.

I am afraid for you sometimes.

I pray that the world I live in,

you never come to experience.

I pray that the world will become a better place,

just for you.

I pray that the Lord guides me,

formulates the words in my mouth to raise you into that,

charming young man,

or that beautiful intelligent woman

that you have the potential to be.

My baby, Ya habiby

I love you with all my heart,

even though you are not here yet.

My heart hurts at the thought of you.

Will I be able to handle it?

Or will I fail terribly as a parent?

A parent’s worst nightmare is to see their child not succeed.

Will I be able to handle you?

My baby, Ya habiby

I love you with all my heart,

even though you are not here yet.

I shudder at the thought of the pain,

and heart ache that you will put me through.

But because you are a being that is brought forth from my body,

You are a piece of me.

And for that I love you,

And I am willing to risk that chance just to know you.

My baby, Ya habiby

I love you with all my heart,

even though you are not here yet.

I hope that I can give you the tools to

“run wild, but be smart” as 2Pac says.

I may feel the need to be over protective,

But I know you’ll never experience the world like that.

Nobody likes an over bearing mother.

My baby, Ya habiby

I love you with all my heart,

even though you are not here yet.

I know that I am so in love with you,

and you have yet to take your first breath.

And with every breath that you breathe,

I pray that you will always feel my love.

My baby, Ya habiby

I love you with all my heart,

even though you are not here yet.

Insha’Allah, God willing,

One day.
