I want you.

Not the frills and things, you offer me.

I want you.

Not your money


Yes, your time.

Yes, your presence.

Yes, your smile.

Yes, your whole being!


I want you to inhabit the moment.

Share your brokenness, your mistakes.

I want you to show me how to laugh at myself when I fail.

Share your discouragement and comeback moments, after failing.


Teach me how to love me.

I learn when I see the way you love yourself.

I see it in the way you interact with me.

So, be entirely and naturally you.


That way, dear parent,  I will finally be me.
