I remember the first day I met you…
I didn’t like your kind.
You were sweet.
I was cautious.
Didn’t want to love you or even like you.
But you had your charm… your way of working into a heart with subtlety.
And here I am…
grateful for your patience your confidence
that I would fall in love with you…
Fifteen years later after finding you on the playground, I not only managed to love you,
but I learned to love your kind…
My dearest Recess…
you have given me hope for the world.
And I will continue in my
search for the gold.
