    I want a friend
    Someone who I can easily talk to freely
    That will go shopping with me
    And give me their opinion honestly
    Who’s laced with intelligence
    And knows that having his head on straight is of relevance
    Someone from whom I can learn a thing or 2
    Cause I’m telling you any ole’ man just won’t do
    One who’s funny and fun to be with
    And not too laid back, but still cool as sh- -
    Who sometimes rather laugh than argue
    But not afraid to disagree if he wants to
    Who gladly assumes his position as “King of the Castle”
    Or “Head of the Household”, but
    At the same time knows
    That because he’s the “superior” of the home
    Does not make me “inferior” to him
    One who possesses the right kind of compatibility
    Who knows the importance of relationship stability
    And who has the ability
    To balance these qualities
    In a dam near perfect harmony
    One who is affectionate which is a must
    Who can moisten me with just the right touch
    Who can make GOOD love to
    My heart, soul, and mind
    I’m talking about the kind of love that is divine
    - - yeah, that’s fine
    Now, he can’t be afraid of romance
    And avoid it like the plague
    He has to acknowledge it’s worth
    And in romance willingly engage
    One who understands that its’ not Me
    But God who makes him happy
    For I can only enhance that happiness
    One who knows that my need to
    Feel special to him is a special need
    And the importance of him fulfilling that need
    Is important indeed!
    One who knows that when these feelings
    are reciprocated by me towards him
    he won’t ever have to doubt
    for they are sincere
    And who won’t mistake my genuine concern
    As being controlling or dominant
    And when I give suggestions, he
    Won’t get self-righteous or belligerent
    And who won’t mistake my wanting to
    Please him in all of his needs
    As being a pushover, easy or weak
    Because I am a Strong Black Sista’
    Rooted with pride
    In search of a man not to
    Be over or beneath me
    But by my side
    Are you out there?
    Do you hear me?
    Do you understand?
    Or is this too much to ask for
    In A Man?
