Considerate Lipstick

You're beautiful, do you know that? I mean really know that. I know you talk to God every night and I know that heart of yours is bigger than anyone's that I've met.  You use movement to express yourself and the tears don't always come but I know it's because you're stronger than most.

I wish you understood the way everyone sees you because it sure is good. I mean, GOOD. I want you to believe the things people say about you. It's nothing less than incredible; what they say I mean. Hold on to your youth, darling, because it's a good one. 

I love the way that you smell like bows and summer rain. When it comes to love, it hasn't come yet because you're too strong to let someone else hold your beating heart in their hands. You're like me. Your mind races every moment when you keep it awake, and when you finally let it sleep it's running without your knowledge.

You know how shaking makes your head spin? Well, I think it's because you shake on the inside because you're too strong to let it show on the outside. It's okay to cry sometimes. I promise you that. 

You're a people pleaser, but it's not obnoxious, it's honest. You honestly know how to please everyone.

I wish I could express in words the way that everything you have suddenly become a part of has been a blessing, but I can't put my finger on the right words. 

Your presence is comforting. You push your body to its limits spend a lot of time with your family. You're finally standing up for yourself and that's what needs to happen. Your facial expressions show what's in your heart and tell the story that's scattered in your brain. You know who you are.

I love you.

"I feel fine about it."
