I need a man to comfort me when things are bad,
I need a man to make me feel secure when I am sad,
I need a man to make me see the positive side of my misery,
I need a man who truly loves me, who doesn’t just say it to try and control me.
I need a man who is emotionally available for us to move on.
I need a man, who knows when to be weak and when to be strong,
I need a man to tell me that he loves me and means it from his heart,
I need a man who can surprise me, who is always honest from the start.
I want a man to hold me and tell me it’ll be OK,
I want a man to wake up with me, as we get ready to face each day,
I want a man to inspire me to write more poetry from my soul,
I want a man to spend time with me like I am the only person he’ll hold.
I need and I want all this in a man,
the problem lies in where I’ll find him,
if he exists and if he can…fulfill my needs and wants.
