All For You
When you were born, I didn’t know you or how much you’d change my life but knew I loved you.
It was natural for things to be different, hard, and challenging but all was still beautiful because it was you.

Though, as you budded it hindered and hung.
Everyone said you were fine, but they don’t hear you the same way I do.
You’re no teacher, but you might as well be since you’ve taught me a thing or two including a new language that twists and even though I’ve had to learn it over the years you’ve had to learn two, textbooks not included.

Though slow, with some water you continue to grow like a magical seed that will blossom into a stronger one of a kind you. Petals may be plucked, and thorns may come out to do what they do best, but you carry a constant softness.
