To the one I love

My Pearl
My Girl
Mag, Maggie, Magpie
Our Dolly, Molly

I give you this gift
As a life line  _________

Take up this pen
Like a sword

Fight for your life
Scratch lines in this paper
As if it were your skin

Pour out this ink as if it were

Write and draw and doodle and rhyme
As if your life depends on it

Because it does


And pour it out
All of it
Happy and sad
Scarred and beautiful
Broken and chipped

Because this is life
This is YOUR life
(it just is)

So shout it loud
And write it proud

And never forget, I love you
All that you are
All that you once were
All that you will become

Because, you’re my girl.
