Do you want to be the one that I adore?
Do you want to be the one whose heart I explore?
If you do, can you let me know?
This way I can make it so.
But if your answer is yes --
Than to you I must confess:
That you should always keep in mind
That I cannot be simply wined and dined.
I need many things that can result from your love --
Do you think you can provide them to me (granted with help from heaven above?)
I need your kindness, consideration, caring, and patience --
Do you think you can help me when I feel I've lost all sense?
You already seem to possess the trick to provide these needs to me --
I just want you to be sure that you can remain as strong a man as I need you to be!


 If you love something, set it free, if it comes back to you, its meant to be...

This poem holds much wisdom  

 I can live with the idea
That we are merely actors
Playing a part
But I do wish
Whoever is writing my script
Would learn to use
A few more Happy Endings

Thanx you two -- glad you liked it.  And yes, Hoot it does hold much wisdom -- its a vision into me that I felt needed to be expressed.

This is a good check list to go by when considering a new "man for the job"...this one should be printed and kept in a purse for future reference.  Sounds as though this comes from a very sure footed individual.  "Dont' interview for a position acting as if you need the job, but instead, act as if the employer needs you".  I like this.

Beri-
This is very nicely said.
I like the strength and confidence.

Thank you all for your comments.  And thanks for seeing me as strong and confident -- it wasn't until recently that I became this way, and honestly those two traits do not always shine through -- it seems to have been a rare moment, but I think to myself, "Hey, at least I know there is strength and confidence definitely in there inside of me somewhere!"  And Devina -- I hope the answer is yes also...we'll see...
