Now What Do You Need?
In all fairness, tell me what you need,
It’s a valid question, in life agreed.
What are your goals and how will you thrive?
How can your passions flow in this life?
As a couple in our sphere
Together we must steer,
Help each other stay afloat
In togetherness, we’ll promote.
We must become one in common goals
For every victory, together we’ll extol.
Fly through turbulence and keep it straight
Keep those channels open to communicate.
Be one another’s sounding board
As an island will never be unexplored.
Give me advice and thoughts when I ask,
To help me tend to my current task.
Support me in my newest endeavors
The whys, the whethers, and sometimes whenevers.
Help me see light by the end of the day,
Keep me in line today, tomorrow, and always.
Be by my side in fair days and storms,
My port in the harbor that never conforms
And as I lie down on this unusual night
May the cusp of the moon hold us both tight.
For I want to be here one more night if I can
To propel us in fortitude in a worthy catamaran.
You know what I need and I must hear from you
Your own thoughts on the topic for me to conclude.
It is not meant to be mystery of thought it is true
It’s all back to basics in life to pursue.
Unless this is futile right from the start,
A lack of indemnity failed to impart.
Come to terms with your head, heart, and soul
Take it deep, let me know how you roll.
Such are what matters to keep us alive,
The mold is cast in order to survive.
Don’t fear me now, just be honest, please,
In the game of life there’s no guarantees.
Rely on your vitality, vigor, and sense
Every decision holds its own consequence.
Are you in this with me to pave a path where we stand?
Or will you keep on walking on another command?
These are the questions we must ask every day
To prepare us for life, to keep that task underway.
Keep those decisions steadfast and true
Make them all sound, with proper review.
Sometimes they’re wrong, and later we find
Our thoughts were elsewhere, not always aligned.
This is your life, child of mine, angel belle,
As I bid you a final long-winded farewell.
Today I go back to the dust from whence I came
May you be privy to the utmost in blessings and fame.
