A Letter to You

I am not meant to
Fly as high
as you want me to
Fly as far
as you want me to
Race as fast
as you want me to
Race to win
as you want me to
Dance in synch
as you want me to
Dance to awe
as you want me to

Rather I am here to
Fly with my own wings
and do it in my own sky
Race with my own speed
and do it in my own shoes
Dance for myself
and do it to my own beat

Because I know that
I am me and you are you
And I know that:

You are not meant to
Fly as high
as I want you to
Fly as far
as I want you to
Race as fast
as I want you to
Race to win
as I want you to
Dance in synch
as I want you to
Dance to awe
as I want you to

Rather you are here to
Fly with your own wings
and do it in your own sky
Race with your own speed
and do it in your own shoes
Dance for yourself
and do it to your own beat

And for all this
You are beautiful
You are a miracle
You are the sun and the moon
But not because you want to be
and not because you deserve to be
But because I was meant to
love you for who you are
And you were meant to
love me for who I am
Too

That is true love, the ideal, not expecting or hoping for change, but instead loving him because of his shortcomings because that is what makes him special, and him loving you for your idiosyncracies because they set you apart as unique.  Very mature and I hope your dream comes true.
