Nineteen ninety one
The day of rainy sunshine

I never knew it
Never felt
That feel you wont

Sitting silent
Watching love as
It sparkles through
The room.

That’s the day I grew
to love that man
That I call

Turning ten
I scratched my knee
You kissed it.
No more pain.

Now seventeen, I’m grown,
You’ll see,
But still your
Girl, the same.

And as I’ve grown
My mind has doused
Some things that
I’ll forget.

But the love that
Sparked inside my heart
In ninety-one
Stays lit.

I wrote this for my father on his birthday. He's my hero, and he inspires me more than anyone I know. He's fantastic. Dad, this one's for you.
