What I Want



I want a boy who can make me laugh,

a boy who can read my mind

and make me feel better with one look.

I want a boy who I can cuddle with,

a boy I can talk to whenever

and who I know will never leave my side.

I want a boy who I can learn from,

a boy who want to and will take care of me,

but will also let me pursue my own ambitions.

I want a boy I can trust,

a boy I can love

and grow old with.

I want a boy who will love me,

a boy who is mine

and I am his.

This is everything that I want in a boy,

but the funny thing is,

with everything that’s been said,

it’s not a boy I’m describing.

It’s a man that I want.
