Girl meets Boy

A girl met a boy and she loved him more than the stars in the sky,
more than woolly cardigans or jelly tots,
more than lyrics that describe her own feelings,
old records,
concert tickets,
photographs
and writing lists.

She loved everything he was,
and everything he made her believe she could be.
She loved him
through all his faults,
she even looked past his old car
that didn’t have a working heater in the winter.

She still loves that boy
who has become a man.
She still feels the butterflies he gave her
when his car would pull up on the driveway.
She still wants to be the person
HE believed she could be.

Her heart swells
so full to desire and pride for him.
Of the father he has become.
The way their little girl feels the same butterflies
she felt as his car pulls up on the driveway.
A love so pure and unconditional
A love deeper than the ocean
A first love between a father and a daughter.

Sometimes a girl can feel neglected
Everything she does automatically
is taken for granted.
Sometimes a girl feels so lonely
evenings spent alone
fighting the thoughts inside her head
battling with her inner demons,
holding on to the grief for her Son
that bubbles away silently.

A girl met a boy and she loved him more than the stars in the sky
and will do so until her last breath.
