She has a slight fever, which is nothing and everything all at once.
It is overwhelming me because
I just can't stand to have reminders that she's human,
she's not invincible.
And god, I need her to be.
I need her to never get sick,
and I need her to never get hurt,
and I need every single one of her dreams,
the small ones and the giant ones,
to come true.
I need her to be able to live in a world
where she can speak her mind,
say whatever she needs or wants to say
without being judged.
I need her to be able to be
whoever it is that she wants to be,
and go wherever it is that
she wants to go.
I need her to be able to fall
head over heals into the deepest,
and to never experience
even a glimpse of what it feels like
to have a broken heart.
I need her to fly through life
on the wings of hope.
I need her to never shed a tear
unless she is
overwhelmed with happiness.
I need her to be okay,
more than okay,
And really, I just need her.
I need her and need her,
more than she will ever know.
