    When your spirit was down
    …self esteem drooping low
    when your mind kept telling you
    ‘gurl, you gotta let go’
    I SAW THE WOMAN IN YOU
    When it appeared your world
    Had fallen away
    When opportunity came knocking
    And you had nothing to say
    I SAW THE WOMAN IN YOU
    When your family turned their back
    …talked about you like a dog
    when you lost your ride
    your crib
    and your job
    when your bank ran out
    and your homies too
    you fell to your knees
    you didn’t know what else to do
    GOD SAW THE WOMAN IN YOU
    HE touched my heart
    And pointed the way
    Instructed my lips
    On the good I could say
    Still, you were hesitant
    When I gave you my name
    You wondered about baller
    And the rest of my game
    YOU’VE
    Forgotten that a brutha
    Sometimes come correct
    No games
    No lies
    And delivering RESPECT
    Didn’t believe that GOD
    Had delivered unto you
    An answer to your prayers
    In the form of ME, boo.

    STILL, I SEE THE WOMAN IN YOU.

    You've peered into my soul
    Beneath the outer cloak I'd wear
    Of smiles and gestures of "being-ok"
    Yet, Still a woman...You saw there
    Led by HIS grace, you came along
    With kind words, given from HE
    ~Reluctance in the Air~
    Still, a woman you saw in me

    This is a beautiful piece baller...Me liking this!
