I can see you smiling now. Of course there’ll always be the agony of life, but you are content. I hope you don’t hate me now, because when I get there I want to be full of love. No more sadness, no more pain. My time really isn’t now is it? You’ll have found a way out of the labrinyth in your mind, I won’t have to quietly whisper “everything will be alright.” People must adore you, so wonderful & beautiful. With the life yo made, I hope you can still hear dad say “Never forget where you come from.” Because you’re Lydia Ann Nicholas, even when your name changes. Always remember. All we have is who we are, so take this that I’ve written for you & know that we are one in the preseby-tense ❤︎ Everything will be alright.
