I knew I loved You, before I met You...

A year ago from now
You were just a thought
Between Yes and No
My mind had fought
And one fine day 
I changed my view
And that was the day
I knew I loved you 
Before I met you

The first time I saw you
You were just a tiny cell
Point one eight centimeters
The doctor would tell
But from that moment 
Believe me its true
I knew I loved you 
Before I met you

Time passed fast 
Sonography again 
I saw your blue outline 
And was amazed right then
I controlled my tears 
And hid my feelings too
But trust me when I tell you
I knew I loved you 
Before I met you

Preparations begin
For your to-be-parents
No compromises
And lots of presents
We wanted it all
Guessing between pink and blue
And No matter what you are
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

The more you kicked her
The more she'd smile
We both are so excited
You are just weeks away and a while
Every night the same dream
Every day the same talk
Your poor mom 
Could hardly walk
Yet surprisingly time just flew
Yes, my dear
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

The day isn't far
When I'll get that call
That your arrival is in moments
How will we manage it all?
But no effort will be spared
For the best, when you're due
Because by now you'd know
I knew I loved you 
Before I met you

Will you have your mothers smile?
Or your fathers eyes?
It really doesn't matter
Because you'll be 
The most beautiful child
Every parent thinks 
Theirs is the best
And we are no different from the rest
Yes, little one
We'd think that way too
I knew I loved you 
Before I met you

They say the first few months 
Are a big fright
You'll cry for various reasons
Keeping us up all night
But we will keep you clean
Everytime you pee and poo
And hug you with care because
I knew I loved you 
Before I met you


I'm waiting for the day
When you'll stand and steps you will take
But remember whats more important is,
To Stand...by the decisions you make
And that's one of the learnings
I wish you would knew
Because I knew I loved you 
Before I met you

Word by Word
You will learn the knack 
And soon you will recite 
The poetry of Jill and Jack
But in life, my dear 
Choose your words well
Because that's something 
You just can't take back
And even if you err
We will forgive you
Because I knew I loved you
Before I met you

The neighborhood and playschool
Friends will just add
Life will go on
Beyond just Mom and Dad
And remember always
Be a 'real friend' that's true
And this I say because
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

Trips to the park
And trips to the zoo
Be kind to everyone
People and Animals too
The character of a person
Is judged every moment
Through actions and words
Have intentions well meant
And though it sounds tough
Its just my point of view
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

Be sporty, be healthy
A good spirit have too
But there will be days
When God forbid, you will have a flu
Fear not, We will care
and treat you from the blue
You will be my priority because 
I knew I loved you 
Before I met you

School and College
There's so much they will teach
But its the learnings of life
That will make you rich
And some days you will spot me
At the gate waiting for you
I promise you my child
Because I knew I loved you
Before I met you

Your Demands. Your Desires
Toys, Clothes , University of Purdue
Be content with what you have 
Because of a quote that's true
Branded Footwear is of no use
For the man
With no legs for a shoe
Simple truth of life...
Because I knew I loved you
Before I met you

Your past will seem better
And tomorrow might seem  brighter
But the present is a gift
And nothings more mightier
'Live every moment'
May sound a little cliche
But today is the day when
You can fulfill you wishes
I'm ending this para
With words and a cue
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

We will grow older
And you will grow wiser
You might get a feeling 
That your friend's are nicer
I fear that day 
Would it ever come true
But even for that day 
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

Travel the world
Be rich by your eyes
Learn cultures, see landscapes
See lows, see highs
But some things are more important
Than just seeing more
Learn to discover
and Learn to explore
Once in a while
Kiss the morning dew
And remember my words 
I knew I loved you 
Before I met you

Fall in love
Give more than you take
Relationships are beautiful
Listen... before assumptions you'll make
A wonderful partner
Will complete you all new
And remember
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

Children you will have
Proud Grandparents we will be
Dream for them like we dreamed for you
and a wonderful parent I foresee
Give them a foundation 
On beliefs and value
Love is the only thing that's true
Because I loved you
Before I met you

Will you live apart?
Will you stay with us?
I wish you would never let go 
Of the love and the trust
Older and weaker
Someday we will turn too
But even that day
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

Memories and Regrets
Through all life's test
You might not think
Of me as the best
Still theres something 
I want to tell you
I always want to be
The man you'd look up to
My little child
I knew I loved you
Before I met you

Nothings lasts forever
One day I will be gone
Remember my words
No need to mourn
We will watch you from above
No, we won't ever leave you.
Because Ill never tire of saying this
I knew I loved you
Before I met you....
