As you are

Sit freely
And please sleep well
You’re not stealing space
I love you
I promise they’re lying

You don’t owe the world an impression,
Change, invention, or beauty
Breathe deeply

I love you, I love you
You’re more than potential
I promise. I promise.
You don’t have to become
Just be



You were a wonder,
Called me the same
But I was a shadow cut from your wing
To watch the sky;
You were made to inherit it,
To last, to lead, to leave me
