So This Is Love

[Below is the birthday note I wrote to Edyn in the journal I keep for her]

You stir the constellations in my soul and set their stars ablaze. So this is love.

You adore the story of Cinderella and the other princesses, and so I could think of no better way to celebrate the day you entered this world than such a theme. And the words from the movie scores are nothing short of perfect, reflecting the way I think of you and motherhood.

So this is love. So this is what makes life divine. And now I know the key to heaven is all mine…I’ll touch every star in the sky, so this is the miracle I’ve been dreaming of, so this is love.

I hope to be able to teach you to be the heroine in your own story, empower you to slay your own dragons, and be there by your side when you discover the purest form of love.

Have faith in your dreams, dear daughter, and someday the dream that you wish, will come true.

To me, you are everything.

Borrowing words from another poet,

He lit the stars to be your eyes, and sent you flawless from His hand.

Happiest of birthdays to you, my sweet Edyn.
