It took time to realize what was true happiness
what did it mean to be complete or did I need a signicant other to make me happy
did i need somenone by side in order to have an identity
I looked in the mirror all these years and not once did I like the person I saw
My reflecton is not one i like, I saw unhappiness, naive, vulnerable and scared
Today I see a new a reflection one that is 22 years younger than me
One who smiles back and hugs me
One who has showed me that happiness is real, I have someone to be proud of.
She has her own identity and I have my own now as a mother.
I am happy because she motivates me to move forward,she makes me a better person
I am proud to say she is my daughter and I am proud to be that mother.
I cherish every moment with tears, laughter and joy that all make me happy.
