The emotions, the routines no longer the same The feeling of delight when I hear her name The anticipation of what will be said The joy derived from the thoughts in my head Once upon a time it felt so cold Once upon a time with no one to hold How things changed in the blink of an eye How things changed for you and I Now I see the light is not far away Now I see the path, which leads your way Wonderful how this all came to be Wonderful, what your replies do to me So much to give and willing to share So much into you, can't wait to get there My eyes await you, as I create this My eyes await yours I do not debate this These words are as real as they seem These words from me, more than a sweet dream
It was so good in the beginning; I rarely took my eyes off of him. One day he dared to speak; he made me feel like a gem. Too good to be true is what I thought from the start. He gained undeserved trust and soon enough he had my heart. The long walks, the deep talks, and it felt so right. Bandages of artificial love caused me to lose sight. He made the sun brighter; and then he calmed my storm. He made me smile again; he kept my bed warm. All that was important was soon put on hold. I uttered the word commitment and then he turned cold. No more late night calls, no more walks in the park. My sun has been eclipsed, and now it is so dark. Why did it change? Did I forget the golden rule? To never fall in love; tunnel visioned was this fool. Lonely days have returned; I'm still alone on holidays. Was there really love between us, or just a sexual faze? My friends tried to tell me; the warning signs were always there. I'd accuse them of being jealous and say for me they didn't care. Deep inside I knew the truth; I was living a counterfeit life. To my dismay, the rumors were true, in fact he does have a wife!
Allow me a moment to speak these words to you Before the days pass away, before the night is through To be the reason for your smile, to be worth your while To be your friend and be your good child To be your uncle, to be your big and little brother To be your confidant, to be your greatest lover Extend myself beyond expectations and lift your aspirations Never succumb to temptations, take you beyond limitations I’ve represented as your man, your fan, and as a son Your peer, your student, your teammate, your hun Your teacher, your preacher, and even adversary Your supporter, your ally; the one you chose to marry Your co-worker, your classmate, your boy, your date Why we ever crossed paths I can only say fate I wish for the strength to carry us through I wish for the knowledge to know what to do I wish for the charisma to spark your flame For the memories to always know your name I wish for the means to support us all I wish to matter no matter how small Lift my spirits by doing me this favor Just take time to acknowledge your neighbor Greet them, meet them, spread joy, inspire I must say to you, I’ll pray for you; that’s my desire
