    On his birthday I wrote....and laid this on top of satin sheets covered with rose pedals....

    No one will do for you what I do
    I am irreplaceable
    No one will care for you like I do
    My feelings for you are strong and insatiable
    Take my hand
    And walk through life with me,
    On this night I ask
    That you be my partner, lover, and friend
    Every time I feel your heartbeat pounding next to mine
    My mind moves and resides in a timeless state
    Unable to distinguish, early, on time, or late
    Only knowing that to feel the next beat,
    I can’t wait.
    Pick me up and hold me inside of you
    Be my protector and shield against this world.
    From this day forth
    I am heaven to you, when you are with me
    Your mind, body, and spirit shall be transported
    Above and beyond the conditions of this world
    To a heavenly state of mind as it is my duty
    As your woman to be a strong, and definitive black woman
    On your arm, by your side, supporting your thoughts, ideas, your mind
    I am yours, you are mine
    And towards you I am
    Patient and kind, bearing no jealousy or envy of any kind
    But eternal loyalty and no matter what
    I’ll always believe in you, always expecting nothing less than the best of you
    I am the layer above your foundation and promise to stand ground in defending you. I am,
    Your princess until I reach my destination in life
    Then I will be your back bone, your strength, your encouragement,
    Your queen, and whatever else you want me to be
    Tonight, I give myself to you
    And you must believe
    That what I’m about to say is nothing less
    Than the truth
    From every inch and part of my entity and heart
    D..... E........
    I declare that I’ve fallen and that

    I love you

    (c)2000

    These are the types of scribes that make a man remember when it was offered just like this, and regret he didn't accept it, just like that.

    Bittersweat piece for me. Thank you for sharing.
