Like Kings and Queens

Standard

.

Every little girl dreams of a man

who never lets her forget her beauty,

her ability to make him stutter,

and her effortless sex appeal.

A man who puts her at ease,

yet sends her stomach into a ticklish whirlwind.

.

Every little girl wishes for a man

who will make all other boys incomparable,

every decision so simple,

and each detail so precious.

A man who let’s her climb high,

but, if need be, will always break her fall.

.

Every little girl searches for her perfect man.

The man who will be her king

and who will always live for his queen.
