I need a man...A poem

Updated on December 13, 2012
Source


Dear God I need a man…


1. Make him rich, but comfortable will do

2. Every word out of his mouth must be true


3. A perfect man must know how to kiss

4. And tall would make him hard to miss


5. Must be funny and make me laugh

6. And always pay on my behalf


Source


7. Make him handsome with nice eyes

8. But on faithfulness I just won’t comprise


9. Successful and of course ambitious

10. A man who is never ever jealous


I know this list goes on tonight

But lord I want to make sure you get it right

So just before you go

There are a more things I want you to know


Source

11. I need a man who knows how to listen

12. A genetic disease free father for my children


13. Someone I can totally trust

14. A man with a will I won’t completely crush


15. The perfect man is strong of mind and body

16. Someone who never ever gets angry

Source


17. I need a man with at least half a brain

18. That can be relied on to keep me sane


19. The perfect man must know how to fix my car

20. And will always treat me like a star


Dear god I know you do all things

So please give my love swift wings

I am so sick and tired of useless dating

I can feel that old maternal clock ticking


21. I need a man with great credit

22. Someone with the heart of a poet


23. A man who knows I am always right

24. And never has to win the fight


25. A man whose family I adore

26. Far from being an eyesore


Source


27. I need a man free with money

28. Who loves more than just my great body


29. A man who knows how to dress

30. That effortlessly knows how to impress


Dear god I know you understand

How badly I need that ring on my hand

How just any man won’t do

I need a prince to make my dreams come true


Source

So as I rest my perfect head tonight

I know you will send to me my knight

To sweep all my troubles away

Giving me a new life on my wedding day

      I have to admit I had a lot of fun writing this one, when it comes to waiting for mr perfect, many of us seem to have high expectations!

      Without ever taking the time to look in the mirror

      So very glad you enjoyed and yes I too love the pic at the end

      Thank you!!!

      Hi Nightwagg:

      Am just setting some music to this hub and being silly carn't help it:

      No dare I comment on such a hub

      It’s awesome and then I ponder

      Need and want are they the same

      We men are but Orangeades

      Out of the forest and exploring life

      And what do we MEAT by just another

      Orangeade who has a great brain

      Oh dang what am I going to do but say

      Booo

      A Tasmanian thing to do

      Cause we are both old and beyond the blue

      Ocean to be exact

      A soft swim to sanity infact

      A man is not worth much

      A human , humble and contained

      May want just drain away

      Into a green, green forest worthy

      Of many Okanagan’s who might……

      Ah who can deny the allure of mozart!

      Anytime my dear friend, I meant every word as you truly are a word smith extraordinaire and so many of us are just in awe of the art that you can create everyday.

      I truly hope this year brings you many many good things,

      I don't work on cars any more, but I do have AAA and enough money to just pay for it. I'm only average height, but I wear cowboy boots...Oh, what's the bother? I'm taken anyway : )

      Thanks for the chuckle. The picture at the end was just the icing on the cake...perfect!

      To have life a little easier is something I think we all dream about, be it by finding our perfect partner or finding a new path for ourselves

      Something I have always thought when it comes to your very gifted poetry is that you should compile some of your personal favourites and place them into an ebook

      I am sure that this could be a great start of a whole new writing journey for our hubpages poet of the year

      You my dearest hub friend are far from a failure, your writing, words of friendship and encouragement have lifted many a writer ( myself included) to greater heights

      And if you ever shared some of your vast knowledge and love of the written word in a few articles they would be very popular

      As we all wonder at how you stay inspired with fresh marvellous works every single day

      Thank you as always for your visit it is such a pleasure every time to see a comment from you on my pages

      Be well my friend

      I am so glad you have found your Mr perfect :)

      It can be hard to sometimes believe that such men truly exist, yet I think that when a man meets his miss right he can often want to be such a man to sweep his princess off her feet

      Thanks so much for the votes and the tweet

      I am thrilled that you enjoyed it :)

      ...well I need a man too ... if he promised to pay the bills and take care of me financially - because I've been a failure in life so maybe it's time to turn the other cheek , so to speak , and see what's out there - I am tired of being on the poverty level and I don't make any money here at the Hub - love your writing here though - and I really love your horror stuff - a heartfelt congratulations on your perfect 100 score - you deserve it - sending you warm wishes from lake erie time canada 10:54pm

      So glad to see your on the list for the perfect man, with your poets heart you get my vote for sure!!

      It has always amazed me what can be considered a deal breaker for some women when looking for their mr right, and how shocked they are when asked if they can meet the same standards .

      I am so glad that you liked my poem, it is most defiantly off the path from usual vampire/gothic style

      I'm here but all those things required from her Prince must also be available from the Princess:-) I will remain a poet, a bachelor and a dreamer. Your very right there are some very demanding very unrealistic standards required for some, I'm not one of them. I just watch all those Rippled faces hiding behind masks and riches, who sadly go through life forever searching for the perfect person. LoL I loved your poem, quite a stray from your usual vampirish work, we all need to refresh our minds sometimes with something totally off the wall from what we usually scribe. Voted Up and shared.

      I too have met my perfect match and married him, but not all my friends are so lucky and with standards that not even prince charming could meet I can only shake my head...
