As I Am

As I Am

I cannot be who you want me to be when you want me to be someone else,
You must accept and appreciate what talents come with the person that I am.
When you hear my voice, look at my face, touch my soul, I am the truth,
Never will I be the person you dream about if you cannot see I am not a fake.

My heart beats to the rhythm of your vipes and you have to hear my impulses,
If beauty is skin deep than my love for you has to be the greatest you find.
Deep inside of me where you cannot see is the most beautiful person to see,
And to get there you must believe that who I am is the only person to seek.

I cannot look like the person you want if you cannot see that I am only me,
The person that holds you in his arms and believes how wonderful you are.
Take me for the person you see holding you tight and never wanting to let go,
Because my strength will reach across the continents to save your life.

The way I look, act, respond, and respects your emotions in needs of the times,
Is the person that stands before you and admires your own beauty for what it is.
I don’t pretend to love you because my eyes should already tell you how I feel,
And those emotions of testimony is to embrace my love for you as I am.
