I want you to share your memories of her.

I want you to feel safe to cry about losing her.

I want you to say her name.

I want you to stop being afraid to upset me.

I want you to stop trying to give me advice.

I want you to accept that this is awful and you can’t fix it for me.

I want you to say her name.

I want you to know that I understand you don’t know what to say.

People-044-Talking-BubbleI want you to stop worrying about saying the wrong thing.

I want you to stop saying nothing at all.

I want you to say her name.

I want you to accept what I need to do.

I want you to give yourself permission to do what you need to do.

I want you to be patient with me and with yourself.

I want you to say her name.

I want you to remember my daughter with a smile.

I want the love you have for her to fill you up, not knock you down.

I want you to keep loving her.

I want you to say her name.
