    I told him he was enough for me by day
    to walk the same bright earth with him...

    It was enough that over us by night
    the same roof of stars was dim....

    I have no care to bind the wind
    or even to set a fetter on the sea

    But I told him it was enough to feel his love
    blow by like music over me

    I told him these things although he never
    could accept my sincerity...

    Sista -- that is the million dollar question!
    I don't know why exactly, but you know I've
    got my own conclusions mapped out on this, and one of
    my thoughts is that there is some 'insecurity'
    there...also, some men just don't know how
    to accept 'true' feelings of love and I think
    it scares the **** out of them to know that a
    sista is comin' at them with some 'for real' ****??
    Maybe it's too overwhelming - not sure, but there
    are always some other issues to look at!

    Thanks my sista for reading & flowin' with me
    on this piece!

    I accept your sincerity,
    yet find it hard you could settle for me
    you are outshines all the stars above
    whose touch is that of a gentle dove
    you have been a queen since the dawn of time
    yet its so hard to believe you wish to be mine
    honored I am for I don't deserve thee
    never in my wildest dreams did I see myself worthy
    I could never be enough for you because you beyond a man's dreams
    therefore I must strive to do better, for its you I live to please
