About the Poem

Some people wander aimlessly through life and never recognize their needs. They're lucky. Some people recognize their needs and wander aimlessly through life searching to fulfill them, but never seem to find what it is they desire so much, to be loved.


I need someone to care for me,
Deepest desires share with me.
I need someone to hold me tight,
Shelter me from the cold of night.

I need someone with kisses warm-
To softly guide me through the storm.
I need someone gentle and mild,
Carefree and innocent as a child.

I need someone to laugh and smile,
Strong as stone and yet fragile.
I need someone tender and true-
To decorate my nights in shades of blue.

I need someone who'll understand-
I need someone to hold my hand.
Yet someone with a shadow not so long,
They could never fully appreciate my song.

Someone who's eyes I can stare into,
Who's heart I could reach forever through.
Someone who can see all the needs I dream of,
And realize I only dream of their love.

Hi, great poem it really tell how people need different thingd in life. Keep up the good work.
LOVE is a NEED. It can never be a 'want'. It is the basic necessity of everyone. someone to talk to, someone to live with, someone to share life with..
