To my daughter—
You are lovely and fragile
In the best way possible
Falling apart at times
Is part of life
I have watched you crumble
From time to time
Only to rebuild yourself
And welcome the promise of
A new day
We are all much, much more
Than what we see
And what we think
Some days
I know you want to trust in this
Just know−
I trust in this
Especially for you
And that I am grateful
And proud
To be your mother
