It Takes A Man


It takes a strong man to love an independent woman.

When she’s been single almost all her life
When she never bats her lashes when she repairs her clogged sink
When she makes decisions on her on
And forget to consider your thoughts about it
When she is already happy with the life she has now
When it seems she never needed a man on her side

Love her and never let her go
She has become who she is because life demands her to
Because she needs to survive on her own
Because she has to stand up on her decisions
Because she has to learn to be happy, to be truly happy with her life
Because she has no idea that you will eventually come to her life.

It takes a persistent man to love a stubborn woman.

When she’s so used to always having her way on things
When she stubbornly stand up for what she believed in
When she refuses to bend the principles she always uphold
And chooses to let go of you than to lose herself
When she fights against you over petty things
When it seems difficult for her to accept your ways

Love her and never let her go
She has become who she is because life demands her to
Because she’s always been the master of her own life
Because she’s used to having no one to stand up for her but herself
Because these beliefs and principles make her who she is, a beautiful and strong woman
Because sometimes, petty things aren’t petty for her at all.

It takes a humble man to love strong-willed woman.

When she become workaholic and over-achiever
When she usually goes out of her way just to get things
When sometimes, her smartness and intelligence overpower yours
And her achievements seem greater than what you attain
When it seems everything she has and all that she achieved is intimidating
When her aura radiates power and dominance

Love her and never let her go
She has become who she is because life demands her to
Because she has to work her ass out just to survive this dog-eat-dog world alone
Because she believes that an extra step goes a long way
Because she has to embody intelligence and confidence to gain respect
And prove that even if she’s an XX-specie, she’s not weak
Because sometimes these achievements give her validation
Because she has to prove to everyone that she can take care of herself.

It takes a selfless man to truly love a complicated (sometimes selfish) woman.

When she is so independent that sometimes it seems she doesn’t need you
When she has become so stubborn and hardheaded
And those fights over petty things seems endless
When her will is so strong, it clashes with yours
And nagging become part of her daily routine
When you feel like she’s so full of herself
When you feel like giving up on her

Love her and never let her go
She needs love and affection too
She needs someone to take care of her
Someone who’ll hug her amidst her fears
Someone who’ll tell her I love you
Someone she can say “I love you too”
Someone who can stand her quirks
And kisses her supple cheeks
And when she’s down, will hold her hand
And lovingly help her to stand
Someone who will see beyond
Her achievements and accomplishments
Beyond her intellect or independence
Beyond her stubbornness
Beyond all of her flaws
Love her, just love her
And never let her go.

Stay in love! Stay in God’s love!

  1. i cannot disagree with this.
    it takes a real man to love a complicated woman.
    a man that can forget himself, swallow his ego, be persistent and consistent.

    you need a messiah, lady…
    just kidding. 😉
