Baby girl

I never would have believed how much I could love someone I never met.
In loving you and losing you and loving you still, in watching that love unfurl and spread through my being like frost on a windowpane, I have learned what unconditional love means and what it sometimes requires of us.
It’s a beautiful gift. It has remade me utterly.
I’d still give it back if I could have you, alive and healthy, instead.
