What Every Woman Wants

by - Saturday, August 19, 2017

Dear Diary,

I just want what every woman wants
Warm arms on a cold night
Promises of forever
And wonderful todays
Silent understanding 
And kisses that leave me breathless....

I want what every woman wants
Soft words in hard times
Someone to read my heart
And touch my mind...
I want a co-conspirator
A treasure chest to hold my secrets

I want a firm hold
When I am losing my grip...
Someone to call me in from the rain...
To be my shield
My pillow my river
My mountain my rock...

I want a raven to feed me in the wilderness...
I want to be rescued 
Lost in an embrace and found not wanting...

What do I want?
What every woman wants...
To find her way home...
