does everyone see?

does everyone see her like i do? i wonder. can strangers on the street see the exuberant spirit inside her? the wild, funny, generous little heart that beats so quickly inside her chest? i feel like no one could ever know her like i do. the pure joy inside her. the pure love inside her. could anyone ever delight as much as i do at the peculiar shape of her mouth when she smiles? when she laughs? does anyone marvel at the way her innocent mind works? i don't think so. i feel like a genius because i see it and no one else does. people may admire her and compliment her and appreciate her sweetness. but i am lucky enough to really know her. to know a girl child who is perfect in every way. who grows by leaps and bounds. who laughs with abandon and makes me laugh from my deepest being. the one person i'd rather be with than any other. my daughter.
