Necessary Dependence

I need you
but I don’t want to.
Guidance, comfort, love are mine
if I allow.

I stay busy
because it’s what I know.
Rushing, giving, and doing
keep me distracted.

You wait for me
patiently, with grace and mercy.
Desperation and exhaustion
bring us together.

You don’t judge,
but accept me the way I am.
You hope that someday
I will learn.

Happiness is found
in rest and reflection.
In the silence you can give,
and I am open to receive.
