I wish you saw me for who I am
Not for the mistakes I have made
Not for the hardships we’ve been though
but for the love and respect I’ve given you.
For what I’ve done to make things better for our future,
For the part of me that wants to do better.
I wish I could see you smile, laugh, and enjoy life.
I miss the jokes you told
The way we could talk about anything
Even though you were quiet and calm along side me.
I need you love and trust back in my life,
To both complete me and steady my life.
I hope one day my eyes will hear you say,
I believe in you.
