What I Want

A life surrounded by freedom

With joy touching every moment.

Serenity when I need it;

Chaos when I don’t.

What I want is someone to come along

Promise nothing

Yet give everything.

Wrap me in a cocoon of his tenderness

Washing the past from my mind

With words that never fail him.

Honesty from step one

Loyalty I never have to question.

Parents that sit proud

Of an educated woman

That took the hard road

Because the easy one sucked.

Since I’ve never gotten it

I doubt life will give me

What I want.
