I am forty-five and I am the big sister of my youngest self.
I defy the laws of time
to whisper in your ear
that you are not alone.
I visit your soul in moments of despair,
when you've been so hurt
that you wish you'd just disappear.
I am here to tell you how beautiful you are.
There is equal light to the darkness you witness.
Be patient, you are stronger than you can imagine.
And the day will come
when you will shine so bright
that only love will remain.
