I want someone who'd stand with me -
The day I lose my degree,
The day I lose my teen.
I want someone who'd hold me close -
Despite the skills, I've always lacked,
Despite the dark days, I have treaded past.
I want someone who'd love me true!
Not for my charm, nor the curves,
Not for my cleavage, nor the verve.
I want someone who'd wish me luck -
Even if it would take me away,
Even if my return delayed.
I want someone who'd kiss me to sleep -
Who would, for me, stay awake
Who would never, to me, be fake.
I want someone who'd wipe my sweat -
Before asking for the money I'd kept,
Before reminding me of unpaid debts.
I want someone who'd see my soul right through -
Who had loved me before I was born,
Who would love me when I'm gone.
I have found that soul, that someone in you!
I find the solace you offer, a boon!
I'd be blessed to be born again, in your womb!
