I used to keep her quiet,
shushing the giggle that would erupt easily.
Making her pay attention to serious things,
but always visiting her
whenever my soul needed recharging.
The path back to the purest part of me
was always there,
I just needed to take it,
and now it is the path I choose to travel.
She, the ideal companion on this road trip,
finding inspiration wherever she looks,
seeking the positive to gilt those melancholy clouds,
doing whatever her heart desires,
because life is short
and she doesn’t want to stop tasting
at one flavor.
