I do want to change you

I don’t want to change you, not really. I don’t want to change who you are, your beliefs, the things that make you you. It is who you are that makes me want to be with you. It’s your personality, your character, that I am drawn to. If I wanted to change that why bother being with you at all? Don’t change who you are.

I do want to change something though. Before you met me you never gave me a thought. I want you to think about me now. Change that.

When you are happy I want you to share your happiness with me. I wasn’t in your life when you celebrated before, let me celebrate with you now. Change that. 

When you are upset or worried or down, when things aren’t going quite the way you’d like, I want you to let me in. You never had me to lean on before. Lean on me now. Change that.

When you dream of your future include me in those dreams. I wasn’t in them before. Change that. 

Don’t change who you are, just change…
