I’ve known you for six months now, but feel like I’ve been your friend forever. That’s one of the things that’s surprised me – how much I just flat out enjoy your company.
How you laugh at everything and nothing.
That little sigh you give when the gurgles die down. The eyes that watch me hungry for more affection.
It’s like you metabolize love.
You grab both my cheeks in your eager hands and pull me into your kisses.
You have taught me how to bottle joy. It bubbles out of your eyes. It streams from you. Rich, sweet, irresistible. I would write you a love song if I knew how. Instead, I wake up with you in the wee hours and feed the life that grows in you.
My Zoe. Life is your name. And oh how you live up to it.
