I love you, I wrote.
I didnâ€™t say Iâ€™m glad youâ€™re alive, but I am.
I did not write about how I always thought this day would come.
I didnâ€™t mention all the nights Iâ€™ve laid awake worrying about you.
I definitely didnâ€™t bring up how much you scare me, or how angry youâ€™ve made me over the years. I would never admit how, without even trying, you stole the fun out of my life. I didnâ€™t mention the word trust but I also didnâ€™t call you a thief.
Instead, letâ€™s talk about how Iâ€™ve trained for this day, working out, strengthening my body and mind. Iâ€™m ready for you. Iâ€™m here for you. I love you.
