Wanting vs Needing

I need to want you
Not want to need you,
Now that I’ve grown,
And can handle alone,
It took me so long,
To stand here so strong,
Not used to missing,
The holding and kissing,
So don’t think I’m weak,
Just for wanting your cheek,
Be very aware,
If I decide to share,
My life and my heart,
Know right from the start,
It’s a decision made,
From not being afraid,
By thinking bravely,
Doing what’s best for me,
By knowing I want you,
And not that I need you.
