Love Me For Me

Dear Mom and Dad, My hands are little,
I don’t mean to spill my milk.
My legs are short,
Please slow down so I can keep up with you.
When I touch something bright and shiny,
Please don’t slap my hands.
Please look at me when I talk to you.
I just need to know you’re listening.
Let me make mistakes without feeling stupid.
My feelings are delicate.
Please don’t expect the bed I made to be perfect,  
Just Love me for trying.
Remember, I am a child not an adult.
Sometimes I don’t understand the things you say.
Please just love me for being me,
Not for the things I can do.
I love you mom and dad. You’re all I have.
