My friend Mary wished that "a certain, real-life man would find me
That he would be looking for someone to call his Favorite Person"
He says he looked for a long time
And so have I
I think there is a magnet inside both of us
That finally activated
She wished "this real-life man would not look to me
To fix any hurt he himself finds unfixable in his deep psychology"
We both worked on fixing those hurts ourselves
In a lifetime learning how to love the one inside
Sharing our philosophies brings the calm
That all of those who came to us to be fixed
Could never find
She wished "that he would know how to adore me
In the ways I want to be adored
And that I would have the same knack for him"
This seems so easy now as it flows from both our hearts
Loving, adoring, cherishing the body, mind and spirit we have before us
She wished there would be "a delicious freedom between the two of us
Freedom to play – Freedom to set the parameters of intimacy"
Feeling that freedom as we play and frolic and romp our way
Through each moment
Laughing and smiling as we bond and deepen our intimacy
Appreciating how much fun it can be to have someone who understands
Who we really are
She wished us " the freedom to be loyal (not out of fear but out of respect)"
We are both free spirits and appreciate the loyalty
That comes from respecting our love and honoring its beauty
She wished us "the freedom to receive the gift of each other’s imperfections"
How glorious the day when this real-man asked me to be his wife
Acknowledging that neither of us are perfect
Releasing us from the burden of trying to be something we can never be
Realizing that those imperfections make us who we are
And that we will support each other with effortless love
Fulfilling our purpose
As man and woman
