Wait for Him

circa 2021

Wait for the man that will carry you to bed when you fall asleep on the couch.

Wait for the man who will stay up with you and your scary thoughts, while the rest of the world is sleeping.

Wait for the man who will let you have the last piece of cake.

Wait for the man who will always kiss you on your forehead at 6am, when he is leaving for work.

Wait for the man who makes you crack a smile, even when you are so mad at him.

Wait for the man who sees your mental health going back down, and pushes you to do things for yourself.

Wait for the man who tells you to have a day to yourself, when you are having a rough day.

Wait for the man who cuddles you, and it makes you feel safe. You never want to let go.

Wait for the man that you would be proud of, if your daughter was with him.

Wait for the man who does not like scary movies, but will stay up watching them with you because he knows you love them.

Wait for the man who has to fall asleep touching you, even if it is just his feet.

Wait for the man who will randomly bring home your favourite snack, just because he saw it and thought of you.

Wait for the man who goes out with his guy friends, but calls to check in every hour, and tells you he misses you.

Wait for the man who is so tired from working all day, but comes home with energy to take the kids out, and to spend time with you.

Wait for the man who sees you cooking dinner, walks up to hug you from behind, and says “you cooked, I’ll clean.”

Wait for the man who will not only change your car oil for you, but will show you, patiently, how to do it yourself.

Wait for the man who will sit on the same side of the booth as you at a restaurant, just to be closer to you.

Wait for the man who always does what he says he is going to do.

Wait for the man who will drive the long road trips, because highways give you anxiety.

Wait for the man who does not complete you.

Wait for the man that inspires you to complete yourself, with his support and guidance.

Wait for the man, who you think may not exist, because you are “asking for too much”.

circa 2010

When you wait for the right man, you will realize, you were never asking for too much.

When you wait for the right man, all of the fights and rough days, are just small bumps along the road.

When you wait for the right man, he will show you how warm, safe, and beautiful love really is.

Wait for it.

Wait for him.

It is worth it in every way.
