To my future daughter,
I want you to know that the world is beautiful.
It is here and nowhere else that butterflies are free to fly and elephants roam about.
The world is beautiful all around because it is here where you may always live in curiosity,
Because here you shall never be disappointed when you are striving to learn.
Little girl, the world is so beautiful,
Because it is here that flowers bloom every year and colorful leaves fall above you.
Baby girl, I hope you always see this beauty,
Because only here can you dance in the piazzas of Venice and stand in awe at the beauty of Paris.
My pretty girl, I will not lie, this world is not only filled with beauty.
It will hurt you, push you, kick you.
But this world is forgiving and this world is kind.
It will pick you up and encourage you to fly.
So, my beautiful girl, please listen to me now,
This world is yours to live in and yours to share.
Your beauty exists to mix with the butterflies and elephants and piazzas and create this amazing place.
To my future daughter, take what I have learned,
Dance in the rain and sing with the birds,
Because you are so beautiful and your world is too.
