I Need This Man

I don’t want a man who
Solves my problems for me,
I want one who
Solves my problems with me.
I don’t want a man who
Shows me how to get things done,
I want one who gives me space
To figure it out on my own.
I don’t need a man to buy me bling,
I need a man who
Compliments my taste.
I don’t need a man who puts
Food on my table, wine in my glass.
I want him to appreciate what I cook,
Be a drinking buddy to a drunken lass.
I don’t want a man
Who promises me the sun and the stars,
I want a man who tells me
They are mine for the taking.
I don’t need a shield against the world.
I need a buttress to my wall.
I don’t need a protector,
What I need is a friend who tells me
I’m strong enough to brave it all.

  1. Bonjour mon Ami Amie
    C’est l’heure pour moi de passer
    Dans ton bel univers déposer un petit
    Commentaire d’amitié te dire que
    Si chacune de mes pensées
    Se transformeraient en fleurs
    Chaque jour un bouquet
    Viendrait embellir ta demeure
    C’ est toute la douceur de leurs parfums
    Que je t’envoie!!!!
    Une agréable journée ou soirée

    Gros bisous. Bernard

  2. Very well penned. This is of different taste which is why this poem is a gem… The three lines are awesome:

    I don’t need a protector,
    What I need is a friend who tells me
    I’m strong enough to brave it all.

    Well written… Liked it. 🙂

  3. Bonjour ou bonsoir mon Ami AMIE
    Je te souhaite plein de bonnes choses
    La beauté du silence
    La gloire de la lumière
    Le mystère de la pénombre
    La force de la flamme
    Le pouvoir de l’eau
    La douceur de l’air
    La force tranquille de la terre
    L’amour qui se trouve
    aux racines des choses
    Je te souhaite de passer une agréable journée
    Riche de joie et de bonheur et du soleil dans le cœur
    Reçois ce petit câlin……et ce bisou ce matin
    Et aussi ce soir
    Bonne journée et bonne soirée douce nuit
    BERNARD
