You come in
Positively radiant
I’m reminded
For the thousandth time
Just how lucky I am

Watching you grow
Over the last few years
A victory over the past
Shedding old, unneeded baggage
Emergence to self

Radiant and strong
Not shiny and new
Beautifully forged
Quenched in confident strength
Owning yourself completely

I see you
Black and green
Bring out your blue eyes
Your confidence intoxicating
I know how lucky I am
