I Want

I want someone

To intertwine our fingers

Instead of just palm-to-palm

To talk me to sleep at night

And wake me with a “good morning”

To kiss me hello

Instead of just saying “hey”

To put their arm around my waist

So I can rest my head on their shoulder

To watch a sunset with

And the rain and the snow

No

You’re not what I want

But you helped me realize what I do

And for that

I hope you get what you want
