love a man who listens...

love a man who listens
your worries, your silence, your dreams
love a man who knows
what having you means

hold and kiss his rusty hands
they will build you a castle so big
his sweat and love will shine through
brick by brick

love a man who speaks
his feelings, his pain, his fears
love a man who wants to be with you
years after years

soothe his parched soul gently
weave a silken knot-free bond
your relation will sail high tides
be ever so strong

love a man who sees
through your fake smile
love a man who cares
to hold your hand for a while

no riches will tempt you
glittery-shiny-gold-white
he will be there for you
morning, noon and night

  11. Don't know.

    I thought I was like that. Then I got married. Now I don't even listen to what my conscience says. Hahahah.

    Very beautiful! And, as Amit said... Wish all women (read my wife in my case) thought that!

  13. Love advice in verse.
    So sweet.

    My favourite stanza :
    love a man who sees
    through your fake smile
    love a man who cares
    to hold your hand for a while

    Love that part!

    Nice, Saru. :)
