I NEED A MAN By Akande Iqmat

Written by Editor

      Yes I do,

I’m tired of frogs, I need a prince

I want a man like a lid to my tin

I want a partner in all form

Always ready to listen

Giving meaning to every minute

           A man I need,

A man who will care for me like his only

Who will value me like I’m indispensable?

Who knows my worth and regard me as irreplaceable

 Whose encouragement will keep me going?

Who will achieve with me my dreams?

A man who will always make me smile and never to cry

Making other women jealous

 He would mean all to me.

           Have you heard of him?

 A man who commands respect

 What less did you expect?

 Generous and full of velour

I want the man I dream of

 Cos I need him not only in the dream world
