sentimental journey

( more women will read this then men )

have you ever seen a very elderly couple walking down the street, or walking
on the beach, or on a path in the park or forest holding hands?
did you ever wonder : what do they have that we don’t have ?
nowadays the word LOVE is used so freely but without any feelings or meanings.
take a look around at the rich or the famous that get so involved in their careers
or the greed for money that they have never learned or have forgotten what love is.
when a man such as myself can look at the woman in that relationship and see that
with all that she has in her life, that she is still lonely and empty inside.
she may never have walked hand in hand with a man, or out of the clear blue
he presents her with a single flower, or has called unexpectedly and said
i’m just calling to tell you ” that I love you ” and then hangs up.
( that feeling Is something that stays in your heart and mind )
what about that man who has nothing to offer you since you have riches or fame
or both and says the only thing he has to offer is his heart and undying love.
a man who loves to walk in the rain holding your hand and smiling and laughing and talking
about anything and everything.
a man who will look into your eyes and find your soul and tells you that
you are the only one he wants to hold.
one who understands your needs and desires, and can still light your fire.
one who knows the difference between sex and lovemaking and always makes it beautiful
and not vulgar or animalistic.
one who loves you for you and not for what others want you to become.
one who still has a little chivalry left in him to open up a car door
and walk on the outside facing the street to protect you from danger.
a man who will help you to follow your dreams and support all your endeavors
even if he feels that it may not be right for you , but will also warn
you of dangers and obstacles that may lie ahead.
one who knows that women are very sentimental and can cry at the drop of a hat
and can put their head on your shoulder and let the tears flow.
