I'll look for a woman in a wife, not a child,
Someone who has seen life, not hid from it,
I'll look for someone who has seen heartbreaks,
Someone who knows betrayal.
I won't look for someone whose life was sorrounded by soft faces and shielded from the cold side of life,
Someone who knows not the emptiness that silence brings,
Someone who made decisions because they were instilled in her,
I'll look for someone wild, someone who once said yes,
And regretted doing it,
Someone who learnt from mistakes.
I won't marry someone who will want a comfort zone,
Someone who won't understand when I'm not there for her birthday,
I won't marry a princess who won't clean unless the maid is sick,
I won't marry someone who knows not how to make stew,
For it's the chain she's supposed to hold me with.
I won't marry someone who knows not the days of the month,
Someone who knows not the cruelty of smiles,
I'll marry someone who can say 'no',
Not because I said no, but because she knows yes is wrong,
I'll look for someone who knows wrong from right,
Left from right, dark from light, dependence from responsibility,
I'll marry someone who'll still smile after a decade together,
Because she knows I appreciate more than I love her,
And that marriage isn't a fairy tale with princes and princesses,
I'll marry someone who'll still talk to me when I prove the fool in me,
Not converse with the wall and delve into my phone,
I won't marry someone who will see me as her first teacher,
But someone who'll raise her hand to challenge the faults therein,
I'll marry, not because of love or age,
But because of knowledge and maturity,
I won't marry a virgin of life.
