I'd Like to Be Baby to You

Though some call it a capital offense
Couldn't I drop the casual pretense
And cuddle close to you tender and sweet?
I just need to feel that your love's concrete -
Not based on thinking I'm infallible,
For I am, like anyone, fallible
And sometimes need loving validation
When this crazy life causes frustration;
A feeling, once felt, that's so sublime - 
Knowing that you'll love me for all time
No matter how weak or strong, right or wrong,
And that I can always be baby to you
Even if the world deems it taboo.
