What Makes You Awesome

5 Years Ago

To this day I still remember

The french braid in her hair

The all black the other was wearing

Nobody told me

But I knew

Nights of crying over facetime

Laughing in the park at night like we live in a freaking movie

And I couldn't ask for anything else

Whether we're 5 minutes away or 3 hours apart,

You are always with me.

What Makes You Awesome?

Well there's so many answers I can give, but the best one i'll give is this: You are yourselves

Maddie: You continue to stay confused and I wouldn't have it any other way

Annie: You refuse to see in yourself the awesomeness that I see in you, but that's okay because I'll just keep telling it to you every day.

What Makes You Awesome?

You put up with me, and THAT is all I'll ever need
