This girl is stubborn,
Wears her anger as her pride.
Her heart is so open,
She believes love is her guide.
I see her radiant smile,
And wonder how she dares,
To survive a world full of guile,
And live without any cares.
I love this girl,
Who came into our world,
A shining, luminescent pearl,
Making it whole with every word.
I want to keep her safe in a box,
Fill her soul with only good thoughts,
So heart know only to unlock,
For those who would not be frauds.
I know I have to let her fly,
To allow her to soar past my fears,
And live her dreams in the sky,
Until all these chains disappear.
