    Star gazin' as I think of
    You and I....
    Thinkin' about how we use
    To be, so happy and free
    You were my peace on a
    Stormy, raving night
    You were my sun on a
    Cloudy, gray day
    You were my rock when
    I needed strength
    You were my reality when
    I needed to climb down
    And find my common
    Ground....
    You were my hope when I
    Needed guidance
    I needed you like I need
    The blood that runs
    Through my veins
    I gave you all that I
    Had to give
    I gave you my heart,
    Mind, and soul
    I sit here star gazin'
    Wondering, how could
    You do this to me?
    How could you not love
    Me?
    What did I do to make you
    Sleep with her?
    What did I do to make
    You not want me?
    The one that you call
    Your lady?
    Please, help me to
    Understand, as I sit here
    Star gazin'....

    I HAVE NO CLUE NO WORDS NOR WHAT TO DO
    BUT YA FLOW IS ON POINT AND HE WHO SLEEP
    IN ENDLESS NIGHT WITH SHE IS ABOUT TO GET A
    RUDE AWAKING ......LET YA HEART BE NOT TROUBLED
    UNDERSTANDING SUCH IS NOT TO BE YET U KNOW YA
    HEART BY FAR
    THE ANSWER LAY IN WISDOM OF KNOWLEDGE
    OF GREAT PRAYERS .....****! HOW COULD HE..
