Longing for love

I long for something that I wouldn’t buy,
An aching desire from a lonely soul;
A love that’s pure and will never die;
A beauty beyond notice by the common eye.

I seek one of similar mind,
A warm kindness that melts cold hearts;
A sincere generosity that’s rare to find;
A perfect complement to help me shine.

I give in return all that I own,
A lot of intangibles, that most ignore;
A little pauper in our shallow town;
A love so deep, you would never be alone.

All you ask for in a love that’s true,
A lover that will penetrate your soul
A husband that provides for two;
A man to protect and care for you.
