If I could choose a legacy,
it'd be for you to truly see
yourself through loving eyes
without evasions, 'but's' or 'why's' -
that you would take to heart the lesson
of gentleness and self-compassion,
and you know your supposed 'flaws'
are also worthy of your love,
that your confidence is no longer shattered,
you know each one of your heartbeats matters -
if I could breathe something to BE
it is to show you what I see:
you áre worthy, through and through:
lovable beauty - that is YOU.
