Missing You

This meme was made up by Russ , and it really is great!  You are all tagged!!! 

Imagine that your spouse/partner/boy-or-girlfriend, lover  suddenly disappeared...and you want an exact duplicate to replace him or her.  Write a personal ad to accomplish this.

Okay... here is mine to replace my Hubby with my Hubby:

SWF looking for SWM, non-smoker, non-drinker, must be 6 foot 3, pushing 290 lbs, and with 54 inch shoulders and huge hands.  Must have chestnut brown, thick hair, with a teeny sprinkle of greys starting to peek through.  Must have beautiful green eyes, with flecks of light brown and yellow.  Must be scary strong, and scary smart. 

Must have once walked the wild side, but is now a hard core family man!  Must be willing to put the kids first in all you do.  Must be willing to coach any and every sport, love sci-fi, physics, educational tv, history, and willing to wear butterfly clips in your hair and nail polish at your daughter's whim.  Must be willing to be a Boy Scout (which is what you are trained to be as a Scoutmaster) at 41 years of age!

Must be able to sleep through a nuclear disaster, but never let the child/baby fall out of your arms, off the couch, or daybed. Must also be willing to forgo sleep, so your wife can sleep.

Must always be horny, and ready to 'go' at the drop of a hat.  Must find me incredibly sexy and beautiful, in spite of the fact that I have gained 80 lbs since our wedding day.  Must have a great sense of humor and make me laugh.  A lot.  Must also find yourself hysterical.  Must love pets, dogs and cats... oh, alright, just tolerate the cats, please.  You must be my best friend and lover, and somehow always there when I need you.

Most importantly, must love me.  A lot.  Must be willing to ignore/put up with my 'moments'.  Must be able to adapt to the fact that our lives are not what we thought they would be thanks to Lupus, RA, MS, a brain thingy and whatever else may, or may not, pop up in the future.

Most of all, You Must Love Me.

As per the Madonna song of the same name from Evita:

Where do we go from here?
This isn't where we intended to be
We had it all, you believed in me
I believed in you

Certainties disappear
What do we do for our dream to survive?
How do we keep all our passions alive,
As we used to do?

[Bridge:]

Deep in my heart I'm concealing
Things that I'm longing to say
Scared to confess what I'm feeling
Frightened you'll slip away

[Chorus:]

You must love me
You must love me

Why are you at my side?
How can I be any use to you now?
Give me a chance and I'll let you see how
Nothing has changed

[bridge]
[chorus]


You must love me

[end]

Yes, that is it, exactly. 

be well,
Dawn

Love, love, love Evita! Then again I love a lot of Broadway musicals and I can't help singing along that my kids dread going to one with me.  This missing you meme is really enticing but I do not know if I can do it without it being too funny. What can I say, things like this meme makes me silly.
