six years

six years


She came in the dark of night after traveling long and far through low clouds and fog to join me. Strong, steady, unwavering. Through all of the layers. Through the darkness.


How did she find me? I think to myself.


I imagine there was some kind of light guiding her; a beam that pierced the shadows between us. A light from someone who already knew the way. Someone who knew where she belonged. Someone that knew what I needed; a jolt awake, transformation, a gift.


She came amidst the force of pushing and through burning pain, a sudden bursting flash of fire ignited. A blazing inferno; white hot, wild, glowing.


Six years later she is still ablaze. Mysterious and untamed, fiery and bright.


Her intensity inspires me, her flame warms me, and her beauty mesmerizes me as much today as on the night she rose up from with me, like a blazing Sun.


Happy Birthday amazing child.

    I can’t decide which is more breathtaking…the photo, the girl, or the words. And all three together…it is simply too beautiful for words.
    Wishing the happiest of birthdays to your fiery ray.
