Sixteen years ago today
when you first looked into my baby blue eyes
what did you see for my future?
Did you think I'd grow up to be happy?
Did you think I'd become something important?
Did you want me to be kind?
Did you think I could be beautiful?
Have I exceeded your expectations?
Or just fallen short?
Sometimes I feel as if I never do anything right
like I am to screwed up
like I am worthless
like I am evil
like I'm the ugly duckling
as if I am never going to be good enough
but maybe it's all in my head
maybe I'm everything you ever wanted
maybe I have surpassed all your dreams
Does it really matter though?
If I am perfect or not?
Would you love me no matter what?
Have you loved me since you saw me
since you held me your arms?
Will you always be there
to steer me to the right path
when I go astray
and congratulate me
if I accomplish something?
Will you always love me
no matter what I do?
