    When you asked me what was I looking for?
    I didn't have a real reply so I shoose to ignore

    But as time past I couldn’t get it out my mind
    How could I easily say good men are hard to find?

    When I had no concrete answer to what made one?
    Without any basis how could I say there were none

    So I took time out to decipher what makes a good man
    So when I say they are hard to find you’ll understand

    I begun first with I what could see on the surface
    And I realized it had to be more than a pretty face

    Some said he had to be tall, dark, and handsome to get dates
    But I’ve seen some good men that possess none of these traits

    So I had to looker a little deeper to find the attribute
    For I wanted to give all the good men a sincere tribute

    I found that it had a lot to do with what was inside his head
    Not how he could make me melt and climb the walls in bed

    He had to have a little known quality call integrity
    It is doing the right thing no matter what’s the reality

    I discover that it had to about more than a pretty smile
    It had to be about would he go with me to the last mile

    He had to be completely honest and honorable in nature
    Not necessarily arrived, but some clue for the future

    I uncover that sensitivity did not equate with femininity
    It’s possession emphasized his inherent masculinity

    He had to have a cause that was bigger then his immediate
    Something that would show me he could be considerate

    I also observe that true loyalty to his friends and family was a plus
    For he would already know that dedication and commitment are a must

    There are just so many things that make a good man
    That I’d never be able to list his qualities in one lifespan

    However as listed the qualities of what I was looking for
    I realize that I may have been too a little hasty before

    I turn you away because I didn’t know what was looking for
    But if you came my way again I promise not to ignore

    Great qualities of a man can range from da heart
    to the depth of his soul
    from his nature to what he molds
    into his mental of mindset
    to his common love
    even his commitment of honor and loyality
    a good man can be found
    in places you will never think of
    and often passed by ..................................

    Next Time besure to let him in
    don't ignore his worth and love.

    Tyte drop !
