I'm no longer his one and only...

He used to hug me tight and kiss me all the time. He used to miss me when I'm gone even just for a couple of hours. He used to never mis saying 'I love you,' every single day. He promised there would be no other woman. He promised I'd be his love forever. He promised he'd take care of me when I'm old and weak. If only I had recorded his promises...I knew this day would come. I told him he'd break his promise and he even insisted he wouldn't. He was only 4 years old then. My son, is now a young man.

When my son was very young like 5 until he was 9 he promised I'll forever be his only love. But I know kids are too young to make such kind of promises and I know it's something that I shouldn't. rely on. I even told him, someday, you'll find someone you'll love and I won't be your priority.
Even though we know our children aren't our possessions and even though we know we can't have them in our lives forever, it's still heartbreaking to see we stop to be their priority, their only love, and their only protector.
They are all like that . I remember seeing a mother taking her son to school, at the classroom door, she gave the 5 YO a kiss, he promptly and indignantly wiped it off, saying, 'mom, people are looking!' (She burst out laughing, while all of us giggled...)
when i and my son sleep in one bed, during his younger years until his first year high school, he had the routine of kissing me and saying, "goodnight, Ma,sweet dreams, see you in my dreams, i love you". then, he thought of sleeping alone in another bed. but he still kisses me goodnight, when i or he leave the house, or after he had his bath. our sons are already grown-up (my son) and growing up(your son).
