Every Night for a Lifetime

She asked me if I would read to her
so she could feel like a child;
I told her I would read to her
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me if I would pleasure her
so she could feel like a woman;
I told her I would pleasure her
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me if I would rub her back
so she could be free of her pain;
I told her I would take her pain away
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me if I would stay the night
so she could feel like my true spouse;
I told her I would hold her close
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me if I would make her laugh
so she could feel like my best friend;
I told her I would make her cackle
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me if I would love her daughter
so she could feel like my own blood;
I told her I would love and guide her
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me if I would accept her flaws
so she could accept mine in return;
I told her I’d cherish her bad side and good
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me if I would hear her issues
so she could vent and ask for advice;
I told her I’d listen and help as I can
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me why I kept holding the door
and I told her it’s because I respect her;
I told her I’d open the car door for her
every night for a lifetime.

She asked me if I’d spend a lifetime with her
and I told her I’d love nothing more;
yet she said goodbye, when she could have had me
every night for a lifetime.
