I Want The Old Him


I want the old him.

The one that would stare at me almost in awe--like maybe I was magic.

 The one that would effortlessly make me laugh, and genuinely make me smile.

 The playful guy who would slap my butt and pleasantly surprise me.

The person who would hold me tight through the night, as if he’d lose me if he let go.

 This man constantly wanted to be near me and inside me.

We would speak about real things, as well as kid things.

He loved everything I was, and everything I wasn’t.

He was patient and kind, when others didn't understand it.

By looking me in the eyes he'd somehow grasp me completely.

That is the man I wish for, that is the man I pray for.

To return to me a little older, a little wiser.

With a new kind of conviction for our future.

He’d be excited for what’s to come and speak of building and growing, together, forever.

He’d finally be mine.

And suddenly, all the pain of waiting would simply vanish.

I’d have the best him.

    Awwww I feel u


    CARA WELCOME TO MPS ~ Thanks for your first and very descriptive Poem. I love the loving playful reminiscences of your opening lines. Some of us have experienced true love just like that ! I speak as a Man and the Love of Ladies I have experienced over the last 16 years (I'm 33 !). Then we come to line 12 "This is the Man I wish for ~ that is the Man I pray for. Your mood changes from the day by day (and night by night) enjoyment of your Man ~ To ~ wanting him to return ~ THE SAME OLD MAN ~ and all the pain of waiting to be over ! The first 11 lines made me Happy for You ~ The last 8 made me sad. I know from experience it Happens ~ GF's of mine have gone away to Study & Work etc ~ and sometimes sadly ~ THEY NEVER COME BACK ! Thanks for caring & sharing ~ Please check my Poems ~ Thinking of you ~ Yours BRIAN (UK)
