MANDALA # 15/1000 

A Petal Within a Petal
07.30.18

You are a petal within a petal.
Layer by layer. Beautiful. Unique.
Never have I met someone like you.
You have
the STRENGTH of a warrior
and the KINDNESS of a butterfly

BRAVE. I didn’t know the meaning
until I met you.
I thought to be brave
was to be fearless.
You showed me to be brave
is to be filled with fears
but to never be deterred.
To carry on ALWAYS.
Comfort in the discomfort.
To try anything. EVERYTHING.
That is YOU.

STRONG. a word that doesn’t do you justice.
ADMIRABLE. You are a FIGHTER.
You are a LOVER.
Your heart is so open
It is a magnet for everyone around you.
WE LOVE YOU. WE ALL LOVE YOU.
Compassionate. Understanding. Considerate.
GENUINE. Truly you are.

Knowing you. Our friendship.
It all has made me a better person.
Blessed to be a part of your life.

To see you leave. It breaks my heart.
But it fills me with pride. All at once.
To see you move on to incredible things.
It is a GIFT.
But I speak for all of New York when I say
YOU WILL BE MISSED

But believe me
we are CHEERING you on
as you begin your new chapter.

May this mandala bring you
a piece of my heart
and a piece of New York
into your NEW home.

This isn’t goodbye,
it is simply GOODLUCK.
