You are the color of ruby red slippers, bright and fierce.
You are Lindsey and Ruben’s rose gold gemstone.
They hope you are always radiating with soft elegance.
You are soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies.
Your warm, delicate skin reminds me of the times your mom baked in high school.
You are a winter coat, the everyday kind that people keep on their coat rack near the door.
You are a Sunday afternoon, a time for lounging around the house.
I met you on this day.
You are August.
This was the beginning of your joyful existence.
