All the hope, all the expectation.
All the worries, all the excitement.
All that came before you, everything we endured, the tears we shed, the fear to look ahead.
All of that fades with every day that I spend with you. And sometimes it all makes sense.
I used to ask myself, Why me?
Now I know the answer to that question.
I sit and watch you sleep, so perfect, and sweet and miraculous. And I know that all that has passed made my heart bigger, and softer, and open.
It made me ready to love you.
