Like Kings and Queens



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.
