    Like the song..."how did you get here"
    I never expected to see you standing in front of me.

    All 5`5` of you listening to me whine and cry about how love did me wrong

    Can’t find a good woman and all along
    there you were just taking it all in and being my friend

    I bet you there was nights you laid up thinking about us and wondering

    Whether we could just be but not taking that step because

    I said that all I wanted was just friends

    Me never realizing that the woman I was searching for

    Was right in front of me the whole time

    Just being patient and kind
    Waiting for me to get over the pain in my life
    And become healthy again
    Healthy enough to give her all of me without the baggage
    She was just waiting and smiling silently listening
    To my past hurts and haunts my ambitions my dreams
    And like the ray of sun that she is she slowly turned my life around
    I looked up one day
    And couldn’t believe that I had the love I had been looking for standing in front of me

    ~Rico~

    I had been patiently waiting..
    For the day when I would look up
    And see all 6,2 of you
    Standing in front of me…
    Grinning hard..
    Brushing your hair back with your right hand..
    Like you told me you did once
    When you got nervous
    I never dreamed that I would find him…
    In another color
    but this ain’t
    Jungle Fever…
    I am prepared to be his lover,
    His soft spot, his wife even
    For I came to him as a friend..
    Someone who just wrote poetry
    But now I stand as his shoulder
    I uplift him with my simple words
    And my patience
    Because when his tears stop falling..
    The pools of his eyes shine brightly
    So., as a girl, I shared my ambitions and dreams
    As a woman, I let him into my heart now
