Woman ........Man.......

"A man wants to be a womans first
love .....thats what the people say
A woman wants to be a mans last romance
right to his dying day"

*Oscar Wilde....knew it all ....
said it too ......in one line
But over and over and again
love makes up it's own mind

I don't pretend to know .....I don't
know what to feel
But I do know this ..........we are very good
at reinventing the wheel


But I ........I always put
a woman's wants ahead of mine..... first
Probably why I stood next to a wishing well
dying of perpetual thirst

Oh Ahorseback, just as I would share my chocolate (and only with you, mind!!) I would also share my water with you any day. This is a wonderful poem of the sacrfices we make for others and of then being taken for granted. Light, but as deep as that well.

Hi Samiaali , I was so far behind the curve as a young man , I would have had an empty canteen! Or a leaky one , I was a slow witted boy in love , always ten steps behind......:-}
