I Will Always Need You



When I lie in bed at night I wonder if I ask too much of you.

Do I deserve your forgiveness on those harder days?

Did I deserve your small hand to reach up and wipe away the tears I tried to smile through?

Did I ask you to grow up too fast when my core was divided but you still needed me in yours?

I see your small face every night as I close my eyes.

But I’m learning to be gentle with myself.

How can I possibly make you understand that you’ve been the only teacher that’s awakened me.

The universe and all its wonders have nothing on you.

When I hold you close

and you hold me back

I grow in every space that was empty before you.

My weary soul becomes beautiful once more.

You may never understand how much I love you.

One day you will learn this truth,

I will always need you

more than you will need me.
