yes, I have a want

I want to be with a man
who loves me as much as I love him
who wants to share joy, laughter, fun
creativity and business
with me in the same way I want to with him
who wants to share his time, thoughts and ideas with me
and is happy to be in my presence
a man who responds to, loves and is fulfilled by
 my giving and my passionate nature 
who is my friend as much as my lover
my partner
my companion
 a man whose awareness of the transitory nature
of life enables him to live life with me to the fullest

I am claiming this want today
I have never said it aloud
or admitted it even to myself
that it is just as important to me
as my self-expression
 as important as my dreams
of fulfilling my creativity
