Stand by me and hold my hand


You don’t always have to understand me –
You don’t always have to wipe my tears –
You don’t always have to talk of trust, my dear –
Sometimes I just want to feel your warmth near!!

You don’t always have to bring me flowers –
You don’t have to capture towers –
You don’t always have to come bearing gifts –
Sometimes my heart just wants a loving lift!!

You don’t always have to keep a smiling face –
You don’t always have to wipe all sorrow’s traces –
You don’t always have to be the stronger one –
Sometimes I want to tie the bow for you with love’s laces!!

Why do you always have to be so perfect ..
Why can’t you be like me at times and fret!
Why can’t we be brave and face threats together ….
Do you think I’m as fluffy as a feather?

You don’t have to fight my battles for me –
You don’t have to slay any dragons and set me free -
You don’t have to be The Mr. Right –
You just have to be right for me!

What , my love, I’m trying to say,
In my roundabout and twisted way -
Is only that -
For me to feel perfect, beautiful, loved and grand -
All you have to do is ….
Stand by me and hold my hand!!

Well said! However, men are just wired differently; they see a problem and their hard-drive goes into overdrive trying to find a solution.
