You are Perfect


                                                       One day you’ll be old enough to see this.

                                                       One day I know that you will read this.

                                                       And on that day

                                                      I hope

                                                      that your heart will know that these words are true.

                                                       Without a doubt.

You are perfect.


                                                       I pray

                                                      that we have lived so that

                                                       despite life’s inevitable ups and downs

                                                      and the lines this mother has had to hold firm

                                                       that my passion

                                                       for you

                                                       my love

                                                      for you

                                                       has never been lost

                                                       on you.

You are my heart.


                                                      I hope that you never doubt

                                                      that This Tiger

                                                      is always at your side.

                                                      I cannot protect you from every hurt.

                                                       But I hope I can help you learn to transcend that hurt

                                                       and fly again.

                                                      Because my children, each of you is meant to soar.

                                                       You are perfect.

                                                       I could never ask for more.
