You will face so much more than the skinned knee of today,
Stubbing your toe will still hurt, but not as much as other things.
You will always dance, unafraid.
When the rains come
And yes they will.
Do not fear the flood, for you have learned to swim.
You will shed tears that you fear will never end
But they will.
And the nightmares come in different shades of darkness, but you have learned to wake.
You are beautiful, you are wise and I am so very proud of what you have become.
Me and also you.
