i outgrew every boy i ever loved
until i found the one who always seemed a little bigger than me.
the one who made the world seem possible.
the one that never felt too small.
he was just enough of everything
so i decided to marry him.
with him i found my voice
the means with which to speak to you
to explain to you the girl i am
the way i see the world
the way i want this life to be.
he put sound to the words in my head
life to my imagination
being to my self.
i am the greatest girl i’ve ever been.
because he helped me learn to speak.
