I cried the day you were born.
Not because I would never be the ‘only child’ again (but I wouldn’t)
Not because I fell and hurt my knee (but I did)
Not because you weren’t a girl (but you aren’t)
Not because you were the cutest baby in the whole world (but you were)
I cried the day you were born
Because I fell in love with you.
And I knew, even then, that I would never be the same again.
