What I need from You
I desperately need you to show me wisdom.
I need you to show me what true beauty is,
A fierce kind of beauty.
I need you to show me that high heels aren’t always worth it.
I need you to be an example of virtue
And to tell me that life isn’t always what it seems,
That the past doesn’t dictate my future.
I need you to distinguish what just isn’t right, but wise.
You can’t let me compromise,
I need you to champion me into my inheritance,
I need you to show me courage through all circumstance.
I want you to show me how to smile, through my eyes.
I need you here to tell me that beauty is timeless,
That as you increase in age, you can increase in beauty.
I need you to make me laugh until my stomach hurts,
To keep me smiling at the days to come.
I need you to show me how to really eat chocolate,
And I need you to teach me to listen with my heart.
I need you here so you can take my hand and lead me.
You have to remind me not to just live but to live deeply in Christ.
I need you to dress me with strength and dignity.
And I need you here with me to walk through each day with confidence and boldness.
I desperately need you to show me the value in purity.
Never let me live without a relentless pursuit of god.
And most of all,
The thing I need from you most, to do most,
Is to live your life with a vigorous purpose,
Because my life depends on it.
From my heart to yours,
