Need You?

Need you?
Baby, I don't need you?
I want you.

I want the softness
Of your lips as they
Tattoo kisses on my skin.

I want your embrace
At the start of the day,
In the middle of the day
And at the end of the day.

I want your strength
When I'm weak
And the world
Feels too heavy.

I want your name
So that the world knows
That I am yours
And you are mine.

So, do I need you?
No, Papi! I want you,
And I hope
You want me, too.

Important point...wanting versus needing.

And sometimes the want is the need.

What a beautiful poem.
