And just for thought...
I hear small snores at night as I lay in her art filled walls, waiting for her to close her eyes.
One day she won't need me to sit beside her to fall asleep.
Will I cry at independence?
Will I be able to let go?
She wore underwear for the first time today,
making her first steps into little girlhood and away from the baby that grew inside me.
I melt for no other like the way I melt for her.
There's a beauty that goes beyond her skin.
Tears come when I think of the love that I have for her, a love I've never felt before.
I do my best by her, I think she knows that.
Every morning I wake up to love
and every night I go to sleep the same way.
She completes me like no one else will ever be able to,
teaches me lessons I would have never learned without her.
One day she will go to school and come back a grown woman right before my eyes.
Will I cry at the wings I always knew she would spring?
Will I be able to let her soar without me?
One day she will understand how her sweet smile gave me strength
but tonight there's just her wonderful little snores...
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.
