Her Permission


We’ve been through so much together, her and I.
Our lives thrown to the sides by circumstances neither of us could control, nor would anyone have ever asked to.
She was growing so fast, her eyes constantly searching for approval in mine. One daddy lost, today, a new one almost to be brought in.
“Do you like my dress mommy?” she asked? “You’re absolutely beautiful!” I responded, tears fighting to run my mascara.
She walked to me with her adorable smile, eyes lit up in awe of her best friend, me. “I’m ready to have a new daddy now” she says, her eyes following the smile now on her face.
The veils collided, light streamed through the windows and I kissed her in the light as we both waited for our lives to start anew.
