    Hot Grits

    I stand here knees shaking from nerves that are weak
    Motionless I stay, afraid to speak.
    It’s the effect that you have on me, without even trying
    Thinking of a life without you starts uncontrolable crying.
    I figure If I keep it real, you know, do my part.
    Then you will always have a spot for me,
    In your heart.
    Stuck, just like
    Hot grits, at the bottom of the pan.
    That’s who I am,
    The one smiling all the time,
    Your man.
    I pinch my arm to see if life’s dream has happened to me.
    Did I really find the perfect match, the answer to my fantasy?
    I only pray that your love equals mine
    That you share the same strength of commitment
    That I have in my mind.
    To me you represent my Heaven on earth.
    Platinum, chains, and bracelets can never equal your worth,
    I hear your words before they embrace the air.
    Your deep thoughts you hold within, I long to share.
    Your elegant stature, along with your undeniable beauty….
    speaks loud.
    I lie on the grass…..and see your angelic face when I look at the clouds,
    God gave you, spirit, and beauty for me to behold,
    Without you in my life my chest is empty
    where there was a heart, is now a hole,
    I cherish the ground you walk,
    I melt everytime you talk.
    Because you are my ice tea on a hot summers day.
    The reason why I thank HIM for you, when I kneel down and pray.
    I’m stuck on you just like Hot grits at the bottom of the pan,
    And I’ll cherrish everyday spent, as the one who has your hand…..

    Re: when ya love

    Wow, what a feeling, and your words are so revealing!
    To feel what your feeling, that womans head has to be
    reeling....
