give me a lover…….

give me a lover that will warm my heart not my bed

she doesn’t want to be led

and a follower

she won’t need me to be

side by side we will walk

heart to heart we will talk

soul to soul making love

this is the lover I dream of

knows when to be strong,

not afraid to show her vulnerability

will even weep with me

this lover will smile while looking into my eyes

will kiss me gently not always reaching for my thighs

she’ll treasure what is inside my mind not how I look

will remember just what it took to get me and will always do it to keep me

this lover knows I’m not looking for a cheap thrill

not looking for her mansion sitting on a hill

knows that all I need is her love that’s true

and for my love anything she will do

she’ll tell me he loves me at least once a day

fearing that if she doesn’t my desire will fade

she’ll care about the little things

like how important a hug can be

she’ll let me know that she respects me

she’ll take the time to remind me just how special I am

and how much she needs me

if this is the kind of lover that you are

then right now I’m wishing on a star

to guide you my way

by “the souls’ poet”
