To the sweet girl that chose me…. 

you have spoken to the deepest part of me

believed in the core of me

connected me to a power beyond me

humbled and honored me

astounded and expanded me

caused paradox to meet within me

broken me

allowed magic to flow through me

fought for the soul of me

caused fear and grief to terrorize me

awoken me

caused mountains to move within me

chosen me

and

have become mine
