I watch you grow
Become a person with a mind of your own.
Your successes are a joy to watch.
You are amazing.
Your smile radiates as you walk in the room.
Your spirit is wise beyond your years.
Your struggles break my heart like they were my own.
Sports, friendships, and academics-
I wish I could make them all disappear.
Your sorrows are my sorrows.
Your challenges- mine too.
My hope is one day we will look back and be nostalgic over these times.
My hope is one day you will succeed in all that you choose.
My hope is one day this will all be small in the grander scheme of life.
But for now…
I am here
With love, support, and guidance.
