For him, her love was endless, steadily patient and boldly kind. She gave even when she needed, while still remembering herself. Her energy was warm, it gave others ease to be themselves.

Nothing was beyond her reach, still more to amaze though she had done it all. She knew who she was, yet so much magic awaited her becoming.
