A Temporary Man

A temporary man
can
be a good distraction
when filled with action
of the physical sort,
a real sporty sport.
Any port in a storm,
so they say.

But

a permanent man
can
be a true mate,
her best friend
who's willing to lend
a helping hand
day or night,
do what's right,
hold her tight
and just love her,
and love her,
and love her.........forever.

    Most of my women friends have this dream, that they will meet the.perfect' man. When you find him tell me who and where he is as I need a pair of old walking boots mending...

    This life is temporal. So do not look for a permanent partner. Very good expression.

    The observation here suggests the temporary man is endowed with certain attributes considered favorable. I see no evident plan of elimination. My question is.....could there possibly be more here than you're sharing? ? ? ? Whatever.....it's a 10....... Thanks...

    How very true Francesca but also applies t the fair sex, If one is extremely lucky one finds a true soul mate in fact ones other half as it were. ivor
