To My Future Daughter

I never told you about fairytales,

because they don’t exist.

I never told you about Santa Claus or

Los Tres Reyes Mago, because they don’t exist.

But what does exist is my love

and devotion for you

What does exist is heroism and cowardness

What does exist is a world full of chaos

Love and hate surrounds you

with every wind that blows past you

Forgive but never forget

because what does exist is betrayal and heartbreak

Forgive but never forget

that you are who you are

and not what others may say or think of you

I will love you no matter what

but how you perceive that love depends on you

You are who you are

and what does exist is the reflection in the mirror

but what doesn’t exist is the word of mouth

Forgive but never forget

if I ever hurt you

because what does exist is the strength

in your veins that will take you further

than I ever did.
