I Want A Real Lover

I want a real lover. The kind of lover who doesn’t just want to touch his lips to mine, but wants to press his lips on my forehead for a minute of comfort.

I want a real lover. The kind of lover who doesn’t just want to have sex with me, but wants to lie in bed with me, and listen to me talk for hours on end about my worries.

I want a real lover. The kind of lover that won’t only want to hug me when I’m down, but will want to kiss my tired cheeks, look me in the eyes, and tell me that he believes in me. And tell me that he won’t give up on me.

I want a real lover. The kind of lover who not only will soothe me when I have panic attacks, but will make sure I get the help that I need.

I want a real lover. The type of lover who not only will help me write to-do lists each day, but will also make sure the house is clean and the groceries are bought when I’m having a bad day.

I want a real lover. The kind of lover who will not only cook dinner with me, but who will insist on surprising me with breakfast on the weekends.

I want a real lover. The type of lover who will not only look me in the eyes when I tell him problems that we need to work on together, but will nod his head in agreement and communicate to me problems from his point of view.

I want a real lover. The kind of lover who never takes me for granted. Who never forgets why he chose me in the first place. Who never underestimates my intelligence.

Who not only calls me beautiful and sexy, but calls me smart.

I want a real lover. The type of lover who won’t stop fighting for us. Who won’t stop loving me, when it’s hard to do. Who won’t stop falling for me even after fifty years. Who won’t let me go, even if I try to let him. Who won’t turn his back on me even when I turn my back on his.

I want a real lover. Who has real intentions. Who has real values. Who isn’t going to pretend. Who isn’t going to fake it. Who loves me for me and nothing else. Who loves who I am, inside and out. Who loves my heart, my soul and my mind equally.

I want a real lover who doesn’t leave.

Who doesn’t change his mind and thinks he made a mistake. And I want a real lover who never questions our love. TC mark
