About the Poem
This is a poem that I wrote today (April 15, 1999). this poem is to my boyfriend. he is always telling me that I'm too young to be the woman that he wants me to be. I am always telling him that just because I am young doesn't mean that I can't love him the way he needs to be loved. I believe that I can love him just the way he wants as long as he is the man to me, that I need him to be. I need someone that will take care of me and understand and love me excepting me for all that I am and all that I will become in the future.
The Woman You Want Me To Be
|Yes, baby, I can be the woman you want me to be.
But, the question is, can you be the man that I need.
I can give you everything you're asking for,
But are you really sure.
You question my ability and ponder over my youthfulness,
Baby, the question hasn't been answered yet?
Don't worry, I'll stick around for a while,
Even if it's just to look at your smile.
'Cause I love you, baby, even though I'm young.
The woman you want me to be- - I'll be that one.
You can mold and shape me the way you please.
Just be the man that I need!
