I stood alone, smiling to myself

The very thought was so preposterous

As if.... even I was not so naive

There could not exist a man like that

You are better off with books, I said

A man of conscience, thoughts, pure

A man who could love and give generously

A man whose smile would feel like heaven

Of graceful notions and noble cheer

A man whose temper could make me cry

With its justness or manly ardour

Fierce and strong to follow his own heart

But humble enough to acknowledge goodness

A man who could make me feel he was more than just that

A man who could enjoy and respect me

A man polite and kind and better than me

My knight in shining armour

A man who would go to any length to attain my love

Though I entrusted my all to him and him alone

A man of values and virtues

Who had his own faults but rarely pointed out mine

A man so dear my life and I became whole with him

Whom I could admire, my master and sweetheart

Nope... still ridiculous!

Go and watch some TV something before you go mad, Christy!

I'm still laughing although I remember meeting such a man in my mirror. My wife however, claims it was an illusion. I would go and check again, but, she has locked herself in there and won't come out. Maybe, he is in there and she prefers the illusion. Anyway, wonderful writing. Be well.

Awesome and up. The final line was the clincher! The oddest thing is what we admire most is not found with what is should be...
