Dear younger me:

You dreamed so big, your wings begged to sprout.

You did not care that no one else could see them.

And when your dreams grew and grew, you built me

a hot air balloon so that I could come along with you.


And oh, this view is worth it -

Thank you for the lift.

You whisper, you've got it from here;

There's so many sights we haven't seen yet.


The grown-up clothes that you played pretend in

fit awkwardly over your wings now;

but I've got a pretty good handle on this balloon

and I'll keep us up steady.


How lucky I was to grow up with you
