I wrote this for you. For this moment. For all that tomorrow will bring.
It is nights like these I am so happy I could scream
My life is so magnificent
Need. To. catch. my. breath.
There are tears just on the border of every smile
No one ever told me HOW dreams come true
Just that they do
And so, as I overlook a city built on sin
Every inch of my being is in gratitude
For I did not know this day would come so soon
That my smile would be so young
That I would still be able to call home to share the news
I did not know success would be this humbling
Did not know for sure that if I just kept writing these poems
Of love and truth
They would find everyone they were meant to
I wasn’t sure the world would hear me
But you do
And I am left in awe
Of how of every damn day before this one is responsible for the ground I stand on now
So thank you for trusting your gut
For seeing this fire in me
For trusting and giving me the space to be completely and authentically me.
There is no place I’d rather be.
