I want You Now

I don’t want you when you’ve figured it all out. I want you now. I want you when you’re naïve and young and lost. I want to be beside you while you struggle to stand on your feet. When you’re still stumbling and losing your way.
I don’t want you when you’ve mastered the basics and established your path. I want to hold your hand when you can’t seem to figure things out. I want to stand by you when the world thinks little or nothing of you. I want to be there when you decide which way to go. I want to cheer you on as you slowly climb up the ragged hill. When you walk in the darkness and fill for the path with your hands, I want to be there to pull you through. I want to be the one you lean on when you think you’ve got no strength left in you.
I don’t want you to want me when you’ve made it. I don’t want you when you’re fulfilled. I don’t want you to narrate to me the stories of your success. I want to have experienced them with you. So that when you’re looking back to those dark tough times, I know what it was like. I was there and I felt it too.
I want to be a part of it all. I don’t want to be an audience that listens and masters the tales of your struggles, of your hardships and of your victory. I don’t want to enjoy the fruits of your efforts without having known them. I don’t want to congratulate you for past successes without having celebrated them with you. I want them to be our struggles, our efforts, our success, together.
I want you now, not when you’ve figured it all out. I want you now, not when you’ve experienced it all. I want you to succeed. I, want to succeed. But I want us to get there together.
