March SOL Challenge #10
I need you to be patient with me when I am feeling sad
I need you to ignore me when I get upset because you bought onions that are too big or pears with too many marks or a t-shirt that is the wrong color
I need you to help me find that word I’m looking for when I’m confused
I need you to hold my hand when we walk. Not because you have to, but because you want to
I need you to let me do it on my own when I can, but don’t go too far
I need you to be understanding when yesterday I thought I didn’t need milk and today I realize that I need milk
I need you to help make my apartment as close as humanly possible to the home I once had
I need you to tuck me into bed and rub my arm once in a while. Just like I used to do when you were young.
I need you to teach me new things. When I am ready.
I need you to remind me of the positives and help me ignore the negatives
I need you to call me around the same time each day because you know I will have a panic attack if you don’t.
I need you tell me about your day because my day was pretty empty and lonely until you got here
I need you to empathize with me. Remember that I’ve never been good with change.
I need you to allow me to cook dinner for you. Please pretend to like it, even if it’s not very good.
While you do all these things I will try my very best to love my new home and be happy that I live so close to you. I really do appreciate you.
