A boy that I’m seriously, deeply, madly, incredibly, and undeniably in love with.
And he taught me the most important thing of all…
To put the emphasis
On life .”

To just let it tell me
that the girl I met,
The beautiful, amazing, strong, resilient girl

Should only come in third
Life is trying to tell ne
That the girl I love
The girl I fell
So hard for?
There’s room for her in first.
I’m putting her first.”
