I cried this morning. I cried a little bit last night.
I talked with you. And you’re right, I could have talked for hours.
I felt safe with you. I knew you would always protect me.
I faced the terrifying notion that the future is unknown to me.
I faced the beautiful prospect that anything and all things are possible.
I slept well. I dreamt of the arms that were holding me.
I felt weak and I felt strong.
I had no guarantee that anyone else would approve of, support, or be proud of my choices.
So I decided for myself.
And the world kept turning.
