I Need My Parents

Initially I needed you for everything

Nutrition, safety, hygiene

Mobility, language, learning

Everyday my dependence on you changing

Slowly able to get around

Quickly understanding my environment

Learning new lessons

Adding to everyone’s well being

Until one days it’s different

I think I don’t need you anymore

Didn’t I learn to value your advice?

Or am I too busy to notice

That maybe you needed me

Eventually our roles will flip

And you’ll need me kinda like

I needed you in the beginning

I don’t want to wait until then

To realize I needed you all along
