What I Want

I don't just miss you.
I miss the way you loved me.
I woke up this morning without you by my side.
Did not have no tears today.
They have all been cried.
Just the lingering feeling of something missing.
And then I realized I missed more than you.
I missed the way you loved me.
The feeling of being able to just be.
No one wanting to change little ol' me.
Not looking at the cover of this book.
Instead opening it and taking a good look.
There is more to me to see than the outside.
I am not willing to settle for less than what I had.
People say a love like that will not be found.
But I am willing to wait a life time if that is what it takes.
I want settle for less than and I don't want no fakes.
I want someone to love me with all his heart.
To light up when I walk into the room.
Someone who still believes in old fashioned romance.
Someone who wants to be my finial dance.

About this poem:
Definitions of finial:

noun: an ornament at the top of a spire or gable; usually a foliated fleur-de-lis…

I did not want someone to think that I made a typo with the word finial. I actually meant it to be as an ornament. The icing on the cake so to speak. If I have caused a misunderstanding I do apologize.

Hi, Happygolucky4u,
Oh, to have experienced such a love is truly a blessing. It's good to know what you want and what allows you to experience true happiness. And, love's lightening can strike the same place twice!

Ladybee I will wait a life time if that is what it takes.

gnj4u Yes once you have experianced a good relationship for as many year as I, taking less than would be out of the question.

Thank you Gashly for your comments. I believe there are a lot of good men out there. We will see if there is one out there for me. And if not....I will be ok. I have the love of my family. And that will be enough.
