Dear Savannah wildflower I meant Rose, Savannah my wild rose, I love you Let me start this by saying that much. This; this is a love letter From me To you Correct the speelibg if tou nust But these words are overdue trust me, I know We both share the "procrastination" gene I need to tell you this before the world ends Before the lights go out Before you forget you are powerful! Before we are old Before I forget to call Again So before you stop reading, know that you are my favorite poetry You write my every line I hear it in Your tears Those silent sobs made me steal words from another poet because I cannot even describe The pain.
Your laugh however, The way you Let it free but keep it close And you Keep joy warped into your bloodstream Like an addict One Two Three Hits a morning Just to survive Don't sell it They kick you out of school for that, But let others know where they can find it Let me know where I can find it Because without you I can't see the stars anymore I was a star before This big city has me all kinds of messed up Too many people Too little water Too much CO2 in the air Too much sorrow from a mournful father. Breathe Savvy In And Out I hope I never made you use an oxygen tank There's a metaphor in there, I swear That I miss you That I love you That every broken piece of me Is fixed when you love me Please don't lose your dreams because love? You are a dreamer. Give me one of those sometime okay? And that abundance Of jokes so full of cheese I choke on the air (Because you know I hate cheese) because you're so corny.... That this joke doesn't make sense without you Sister, You are my greatest friend. You are fifteen roses of beautiful and wild and Golden-Gate-Bridge strong. You taught me How to protect How to dress How to stay strong How to disappoint you How to long for someone you love How to love you You taught me how to be unapologetically myself Because you know you're fabulous Like the way you sneeze glitter Like the way you like "clickety-click shoes" Because they announce your arrival I hope you know my shoes don't fit you They aren't intended to (though I always borrowed yours) We have different things in store And You are so much better at shopping Savvy Let my love protect you And don't live too quickly Let me teach you how to forgive Let me back in Sincerely yours, Klaryssa Lynn P.S. drink plenty of water so you don't wilt.
