I had unspoken hopes and expectations
when I first met and started talking to you..
but I had no idea just how incredible your
responding heart would become.
I guess, in truth.. I knew it all along--
anyone as defiant and pissy as you were
is only that way because of a "**** the world"
form of a really deep self-love..
(tho I'm sure you want to punch me in the face for saying that.)
Everything about every single thing you have done
and responded to concerning things I have said to you
or written about you throughout the years
can only come through a brilliant mind's
that it deserves, and in its core form.. expects..
nothing less than the best that the Universe
can bring forth, for you.
You have fought it within the residual insanity
that tells you that are unworthy..
or too "bad" inside..
or whatever, kiddo..
but the greater, truer side of you knows
and has always known.
Someone long ago.. when you were little, tried hard
to smother away the beautiful view of it all in you,
But your Dad fought heroically hard for you so that the view
that is now becoming more and more fully yours
would not be stifled to a place beyond retrieve.
When I first came across you in all of your
"little troublemaker-queen of HP", glory, I saw
what your father had so wonderfully done on your behalf
in what I immediately felt had been preserved in you..
even in all of your pissy, wildness.
Unfortunately, he could not stay, and you were left in shards..
devastated to the core..
now that the brokenhearted-champion of your
nearly-broken spirit was suddenly gone forever.
I still through it all, could immediately feel what he had
done for you.. and I fought hard from day one
to help you get every single part of that back in you..
And now, here you are. You are beautiful, Arlo.
You are forever Yrlo. xoxo
"And I’ve lost track
Of all the time I’ve wanted him back"
You have become his perfect dream, young lady xo
