I wish I could of played with you
All the times you wanted to….
But our life has been so different
since you sister came along,
we had to learn a whole new language
and sing a different life song…
I’m sorry for the times, you thought we didn’t care….
but sometimes the weight of your sisters diagnosis,
was just a little too much to bare.
Its been so hard for your dad and I,
to get the balance right…..
and we never wanted you to witness
another sleep deprived fight.
But i hope you have noticed
that sometimes there is no wrong or right,
its simply about having the courage,
to let your light shine bright…..
You have so much wisdom,
buried deep into your soul…
And you seem to already understand that in life,
some things are just out of our control.
But if there was one thing I could teach you,
as you take this giant leap…
There is one major seed… that if you sew
it will be sure to reap.
And that my little angel, is something called love
It will be your greatest ally ……
Your constant white dove.
So to my beautiful daughter, on her first school day
Know that you are fiercely loved…
in every single way.
Be brave, be bold, be gentle, be bright
For you dear Grace,
are so lovingly full of light.
So proud of you
