I Hope You'll Remember Me

I hope you'll remember me,
As the baby in your arms,
The little girl who never cried,
The picky eater,
The lazy one,
The messy one,
The independent teenager,
The girl who wanted the best for everyone else,
The girl who was learning to love,
The little girl who turned into a tall, teenager that tried her hardest at everything,
The baby, the toddler, the pre-teen, the teenager, that you've raised with such care and thoughtfulness,
The daughter you loved.

I hope you'll remember me,
As the forever happy one,
The sleepy one,
The tall girl,
The funny one,
The one that gave good advice,
The girl with the pretty clothes,
The lazy one,
The hungry one,
The girl who didn't know much,
The girl that has gone through crushes like fire through a forest,
The girl you've seen grow, physically, emotionally, intellectually,
The pre-teen that became a teenager a bit too quickly,
The friend you loved.

I hope I'll remember me,
As the forever happy one,
The picky eater,
The lazy one,
The girl who never cried,
The girl that wanted to be taller,
The girl that went through crushes like like fire through a forest,
The sleepy one,
The hungry one,
The one that gave advice but couldn't follow them herself,
The one that loved cats,
The girl who wanted the best for everyone else,
The girl that didn't know how to love but tried her hardest to learn,
The girl that tried her hardest at everything, even if other people didn't see it,
The one that noticed everything,
The girl who was confused,
The girl who was sad and happy at the same time,
The girl that thought she was hardly ever good enough,
The girl that enjoyed taking pictures and writing,
The girl who liked sleeping,
The messy one,
The girl that spent too much time on Youtube,
The one that was immensely scared of the things unseen,
The one that was scared of being physically alone,
The one who had trouble with faith,
The pre-teen that became a teenager a bit too quickly,
The girl that grew so fast, physically, emotionally and as a person, that she got lost along the way,
The girl I didn't know how to love.
