The fact that you know who you are is what made that birthday in the woods possible for me. That, and that you are so brave, decisive, and strong…and that you like to eat gummie bears and are particular about the brand.
You love as fast as I do. You told me it was nice to say it and to hear me say it back to you. And I still love you. I can’t imagine – I refuse to imagine – not having you somewhere in my life. I am okay with what is yours and what you give me. I am okay.
Love is yours for the taking, Sweet Bird. And most of the time, so am I.
