“I wanted you to know joy, so I laughed with you. I wanted you to feel safe, so I was there for you. I wanted you to accept others as they are, so I accepted you as you are. I wanted you to be unashamed of your tears, so I didn’t hide mine. I wanted you to be brave, so I let you see me conquer my fears. I wanted your heart to be tender, so I treated it with care. I wanted you to follow your dreams, so I let you see me follow mine. I wanted you to be compassionate, so I showed you kindness. I wanted you to be generous, so I shared freely all I had with you. I wanted you to live in peace with others, so I lived in peace with you. I wanted you to become who you were meant to be, so I gave you wings and set you free.”
