And just for thought...
It is these mornings I cherish, where we have nowhere to go,
no itinerary to follow, no one to report to.
Sunny blue skies, my cup of iced coffee, and my sweet little daughter.
Through her, I always feel enough, secure in my abilities, ready to go beyond my means.
She is unaware of trials already faced in her life,
the money we struggle for, the love I walked away from to keep her safe.
One random morning, we will sit at a coffee house together,
me with my Milky Way and her with a latte instead of her bear sippy cup.
Questions will be asked that I had been waiting to answer, dreading the conversation.
She will want to know about her father, why he didn't love her like he should have,
and why she wasn't enough for him to be there.
But for now, she is still innocent to the world and I will hold onto this as long as I can.
I am still the sun that rises and the moon that sets in her eyes,
just sitting together with our laughter on a breeze.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
