Hold me gently, and yet, not so gently that I become bored;
Make me feel safe, though do not deny me on occasion, danger;
Allow me my freedom, but do not become blind;
Engage me in real love and still fulfill my fantasies;
Look upon me with halo, yet accept me with faults;
I am woman, I am love, I am complicated…Trust.
Permit me to carry you, though do not forget how to stand;
Count on me as your protector, but do not need protecting;
Allow me my freedom, but do not become disinterested;
Love me for what I can become, and still, love me for me;
Look upon me as your hero, yet accept my inadequacies;
I am man, I am strength, I am complicated…Trust.
