When I walk into your life,
I never expect you to try to change who I am.
Even when I am a broken heart,
All I expect is to be patched up.
I never want to be changed into a different being
That will fit your will.
Patch me up with a smile,
With a kind heart and a soft mind,
With love and tenderness.
Patch me up and help me be my true self again,
That’s Love.
And if in the process, I encounter my better self,
Then we will agree on a new path towards enlightenment.
