My Ideal Someone - Poem by William J. (Skip) Henderson Jr.

I’m looking for some to love live and die for
Someone I can trust to the very end
Someone who’ll be much more than a life long friend
Someone who will give as well as receive
Someone who is not so apt to deceive
Someone who is loving, warm and kind
Someone who is crazy but sound of mind
Someone who is healthy, not so wealthy but wise
Someone who is witty but wears no disquise
Someone who enjoys good clean fun in the mid of night or hot noon sun,
Someone who is attractive not only to me, but to others as well for the sake of envy
Someone who has personality and poise
Someone who loves four year old boys
Someone who is not just along for the ride, but
Someone who’ll forever be by my side.

Authors Note: This is the first poem I ever wrote, in Sept 1968 and was a description of the woman I would be married to for 38 years... so far so good!

    So tender and descriptive, one must envy what you have found. Cling to it my friend... it is so very hard to find..... Beautiful William, beautiful! (Report) Reply
