The more men I meet, the better I like my horse!!!

Boys

A heart is not a play thing,

a heart is not a toy,

but if you want it broken,

just give it to a boy.

Boys, they like to play with things

To see what makes them run,

But when it comes to kissing,

They do it just for fun.

Boys never give their hearts away

They play us girls for fools,

They wait until we give our hearts

And then they play it cool.

You will wonder where he is at night

You will wonder if he's true,

One moment you will be happy,

one moment you will be blue.

If you get a chance to see him

Your heart begins to dance

Your life revolves around him,

There's nothing like romance.

And then it starts to happen,

You worry day and night

You see, my friend, you're loosing him

It never turns out right.

Boys are great, though immature

The price you pay is high,

He may seem sweet and gorgeous

But remember, he's a guy.

Don't fall in love with just a boy

That takes a lot of nerve.

You see, my friend, you need a man

to get what you deserve.

So when you think that you're in love,

Be careful if you can

Before you give your heart away

Make sure that he's a man.

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE...

...one old love she can imagine going back to,
and one who reminds her of how far she has come...
...enough money within her control to move out and rent
a place of her own even if she never wants to and needs to...
...something perfect to wear if the employer or date
of her dreams wants to see her in an hour...
...a youth she's content to leave behind...
...a past juicy enough that she's looking
forward to retelling it in her old age...
...the realization that she is actually going to have
an old age and some money set aside to fund it...
...a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill,
and a black lace bra...
...one friend who always makes her laugh,
and one who lets her cry...
...a good piece of furniture not previously owned
by anyone else in her family...
...eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems,
and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored...
...a resume that is not even the slightest big padded...
...a feeling of control over her destiny...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...how to fall in love without loosing herself...
...how to quit a job, break up with a lover,
and confront a friend without ruining the relationship...
...when to try harder and when to walk away...
...how to have a good time at a party she'd never choese to attend...
...how to ask for what she wants in a way
that makes it most likely she'll get it...
...that she can't change the length of her calves,
the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents...
...that her childhood may not have been perfect, but it's over...
...what she would and wouldn't do for love or more...
...how to live alone, even if she doesn't like it...
...whom she can trust, whom she can't,
and why she shouldn't take it personally...
...where to go, wether it be a best friend's
kitchen table or a charming inn in the woods,
when her sould needs soothing...
...what she can and can't accomplish in a day,
a month, and a year...

After a While

After a while you learn
the subtle difference between
holding a hand and chaining a soul
and you learn
that love doesn't mean leaning
and company doesn't always mean security.
And you begin to learn
that kisses aren't contracts
and present aren't promises
and you being to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead
with the grace of a women,
not the grief of a child
and you learn
to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is
too uncertain for plans
and futures have a way of falling down
in mid-flight
After a while you learn
that even sunshine burns
if you get too much
so you plant your own garden
and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone
to bring you flowers
and you learn that you really can endure
you really are strong
you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn
with every goodbye, you learn...
