To Iris.

You told me to smile, and I actually listened.

You took my hand and pulled me into the light.

You told me I was beautiful and my heartbeat quickened.

For the first time in my life, I didn't put up a fight.

You made me believe that I wasn't alone.

That maybe someone actually cared.

Now I'm a different person than I've ever known.

Beacause of you, I'm no longer scared.
