Having a Girl

Having a girl is like remembering pieces of yourself from the past, or recognizing them again.
One or the other, or maybe both.
Like watching this girl the other day.
I was reading with Benji when she came into the room like this.
Makeup on, bow in her hair, dress on.
She was dancing around.
Simple Joy. 
Feeling beautiful.

Having a girl lets you witness the tenderness in her heart.
It means watching emotion as it's raw and new.
It's watching her pretend she's 30, and knowing inside, that one day she'll get there.

Will she remember this?
Will she know the loveliness inside her?

I hope so.
