We sat at the edge of the world & you asked me to tell you why & though a thousand things came to mind, underneath them all was a quiet voice saying, Because you remind me of everything there is in this world to love.
I don't know who we'll become in the days ahead. I only know the quiet voice in my heart that says we'll become it together.
When you start to crack open, don't waste a moment gathering your old self up into something like you knew before. Let your new self splash like sunlight into every dark place & laugh & cry & make sounds you never made & thank all that is holy for the gift, because now you have no choice but to let all your love spill out into the world.
Are you a princess? I said & she said I'm much more than a princess, but you don't have a name for it yet here on earth.
It only took a moment to decide to love you, wildly with my whole heart & the thing that amazes me again & again is that it really is as simple as that.
For all the thousand things we do in the world, I love it best when we sit in the sunlight together, smiling quietly with the knowing that here is the perfect place to be.
