As I Am

By Eric Y. Theriault

Look at me now
Look
Then you say that things are changing
Please accept me as I am
Look at me again
You should see
that I have finally seen you now.
Don't stab me in the heart
Accept me as I am today
And take me in that heart of yours
What can I do
You know things are changing
Changing before you and I
Love me as I am
Please accept what I have slowly become
And I will do the same for you
Please let me show you all I know
Please accept me as I am
Things are changing
So fast yet so slowly
Accept me as I am

A few years ago
I would never had guessed
That things would be as they are today
But things are changing
so fast that I'm afraid of tomorrow
Afraid that you will stab me in the heart
Please forgive what I have done in the past
And take me as I am
Accept me as I am
And take me into your heart
Things are changing
So please
Accept me as I am

Please accept me as I am
And be aware that things are changing
Look at me again
Help me believe
in tomorrow.
