All I Ever Wanted


All i ever wanted
Was love from someone true
All i ever needed
Was someone to hold and care for me
All i ever asked for
Was a man who could know me
All i ever wanted
All i ever needed
All i ever asked for
Was you


Hold me tight
Kiss me slow
Place your hands on me
Show me love
Show me trust
Teach me all these things
Show me
What you could be

All i ever wanted
Was love from someone true
All i ever needed
Was someone to hold and care for me
All i ever asked for
Was a man who could know me
All i ever wanted
All i ever needed
All i ever asked for
Was you

Love is a small thing
Yet it is what is craved
All through out the world
Its what we want
Its what we need
A four letter word
Could tear us apart
Isn't it ironic
Love and hate
Same letters long
Its just a simple thing
To set it apart
Yet we all crave it

All i ever wanted
Was love from someone true
All i ever needed
Was someone to hold and care for me
All i ever asked for
Was a man who could know me
All i ever wanted
All i ever needed
All i ever asked for
Was you

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
