Heart Cry

I was five when I first met you
you gave me a stuffed dog
that I never put down
You were so far ahead of me
yet I struggled to catch up
I never saw you very much
you were always gone
And when you were with me
I was a bit shy with you

Desperately wanting validation from you
but somehow always falling short
I finally matured and grew to like myself
inspite of not knowing who I was
No longer needing you to approve of me
I finally knew freedom from the loneliness
I had always carried with me

And now that I am older
my heart cries out for you
Not because of the emptiness
you never filled for me
But because of the love
you never accepted
