Who I'm Looking For
…but not just any girl.
Find one who’s idealistic,
generous with her smile and laugh.
A girl who’s adventurous,
and contemplative, and curious.
A girl who knows how to be a lady
and a child and a man, too.
A girl who’s smart and knows about
some of the things I know about and
some of the things I don’t.
A girl who dances, because she needs to.
A girl who remembers how to imagine,
so she can remind me when I forget.
(Do the same for her.)
A girl whose heart explodes to a
One who craves music and movement,
and people to share with.
But also, a girl with gumption.
A girl with self-respect,
A girl who knows when it’s time to be real.
A girl who knows nothing is permanent,
and tries not to take things for granted.
A girl who works hard and for a reason.
A girl who has a reason.
Is that who you’ve found? Is it who you’re looking for?
