I am sorry that, too often, the world is a confusing and frightening place.
I am sorry that a word out of place can make you sob till you shake.
I am sorry that every day, a million tiny things break your heart.
I am sorry that sometimes, the world will not understand why something it thinks is insignificant makes you rant and wail.
I am sorry that I could not work out what I had said wrong, that you begged me to ‘say it properly’, that whichever desperate sentence I tried was the wrong one.
But I am grateful that I could hold you tight, until you calmed.
I am grateful that I learn more about you every day.
I am grateful that, together, we will always make it alright, always wait out the storm.
And I am grateful for every perfect second that you have been, and will be, in my life.
