My dearest child the days have come
and passed and summers end is upon us.
School lingers, the mornings darken
as I fold away your uniform
let me tell you of my thoughts…
You are the calm between the beats of my
heart, the pride that swells every time I see
your smiling face.
Do not forget this.
Do not ever forget this.
This world can appear topsy turvy,
your soul is oh so sensitive but know this,
you are the product of me,
inside of you,
inside of me,
is a ferocious lioness,
let her be your strength.
And when the lights shine too bright
and the noise screams
too loud, and when everything
is too hard, remember this,
You are my proudest accomplishment,
my heart skips a beat at every breath you take,
butterflies swarm through me every time
you calm your raging heart
and let that whisper out into the universe.
You are all that you are meant to be.
You are perfect, you see.
