My dear child,
Do you know how long I have held you in the palm of my hand and gazed at your form—your heart, your mind, your soul?
Your passion for justice pleases me. Your quickness to forgive and to ask forgiveness humbles me. Your path has been a long and winding one. Yet, you persevere through it all.
You enjoy seeing others when they are happy; you empathize and feel their pain when they are hurting. How long I have loved you and yearned to give you all the love you have so freely given, expecting nothing in return, but the joy it gives you.
