And Just Like That She Was Nineteen ...
And just like that she was nineteen. He was sure when she went to bed the night before, she was seven.
He remembers kissing her, tucking her in and saying I love you.
He remembers turning out her light, standing in her doorway and watching her eyes, those big brown eyes, gently close.
He remembers the odd rush of feelings she inspired -- peace love, tranquility and the primal rage he would unleash on anyone who tried to hurt her.
Yes, he was sure about it, she was seven the night before. And just like that, she was nineteen.
Happy birthday my beautiful little princess. I can't believe you're nineteen. I love you forever plus one.
