It wasn't until I met her...and she showed me who I was...and more important she revealed to me who I wasn't!
I took my first breath...and finally lived.
She peeled back layers built up from past hurts and pains!!!
She became my shield from battles not yet won...she became my prayers at night when I couldn't vocalize my deepest desires.
My closest friend when no one was there.
Held my head high when the world dropped me so low.
My blanket of comfort in my loneliest hour.
She became my sanity after years of driving myself crazy.
She became my life.
My One True Love!
She became awesome, loving, and true.
Someone to look up to.
Someone full of purpose, and life.
She became me.
And I love her dearly.
