There is often a disparity between what I want and what I need
I want to hold onto you and never let you go,
I need to let you go and stop holding on.
I want to go back in time and undo all my mistakes,
I need to move forward, learning from mistakes I can’t undo.
I want to hear you say I love you,
I need to love myself enough that it doesn’t matter.
I want to make love to you every day,
I need to stop dreaming about making love to you.
I want to be able to lean on you as you tell me it’ll all be ok,
I need to know it’ll all be ok even without anyone to lean on.
