Yearnings

YEARNINGS
Men, listen to what woman say,
there are some things that you might learn.
About the things that women want,
and for the things we yearn.

We want a man who’s faithful,
gentle, kind and strong.
Someone who will believe in us,
even when he knows we’re wrong.

We want someone who is not afraid,
to let his love shine bright.
Someone we can depend upon,
every day and every night.

We want a man who will love us,
if we are skinny or grown wide.
Someone who will be delighted,
to hold us closely by his side.

We want someone who is not ashamed,
to show his lady some romance.
Who will make us feel how loved we are,
with every gesture, smile and glance.

We want someone to grow old with,
rocking grand babies on our knees.
While sitting on the front porch,
shaded by saplings now grown to trees.

As we hold him close to us,
as he slips silently into death.
We will know that we were cherished,
till he drew his final breath.
