I Know You

 I know you
I know all about you
I know what it felt like as you grew inside me
I know what it felt like to hold you for the first time & every time that followed 
I know every fleck of color & sparkle in your eyes
I know the tears that fell from those eyes & how it felt to wipe them away
I know your smile & how it made me feel
I know your skin & every freckle 
I know your heart & how deeply it loved
I know the joy you brought to this world
I know your beauty both inside & out
I know what it was like to hear & see you for the very last time
I know what it feels like to say goodbye 
What I don’t know is how to be without all these things I know about you 


There’s a million other things I know about you too! I know you, sweet daughter.
