♥ When I look at you
I see the woman I want to be
Strong and brave
Beautiful and free


P.S. I love you.

♥ It's no one's fault, Claire. It's just how life is sometimes. Maybe it's my fault for trying to protect you when your father and I divorced. I didn't want you to ever see that the world can be a bad place, that life is difficult, that sometimes we can't control our destinies.

This is not your fault, Claire. This is nobody's fault. Sometimes there just isn't anyone to blame.

♥ When the road bends
We'll be on it together
Taking the curve
To each other, like mother
To daughter,
To mother.
