Before a tear would drop from my eyes, there would be hands to brush it away and hold me close. If I felt lonely even in the middle of the night, someone would wake from the deepest slumber and cuddle me till I was alright. I could hit out at with my tiny fists towards whomever I wanted, look away when spoken to and not be reprimanded.
When someone would come after a long day, all I had to do was look at the person and they would indulge me for hours, cooing their stresses away. Every taste I tried would be new, every experience fresh! I could sit on my seat and I would be wheeled around happily by everyone for hours.
I would be protected from the evils of the world. Even before I fell, hands would reach out to cushion me. I wouldn't have to try to please people, somehow my presence would be enough to do that! I would not be alone or lonely even for a moment!
I wish I were a baby.
