    I sit and wait.....

    For my baby sister....

    16 years old and thinks shes knows it all
    From the moves a man will make
    To nuccas tryin to holla at the mall....

    She wears a long ponytail and a type of sass
    And to my horror, shes startin to grown an ***

    I sit and wait...

    To see what kind of woman she will become
    She's surrounded by good mentors
    I hope her future standards don't turn wrong

    She stopped listening to rap and now pumps india arie
    I sit and shake my head cuz shes acting like me

    I sit and wait....

    My sista has the type of glow no one can touch
    It brings so many big-headed boys
    But to her beauty, none of them can clutch

    I want to tell my sister that I can teach her all the don'ts
    But by tellin her I'll lose her respect--so I won't

    I sit and wait...

    For the time we can talk like grown women
    But I already know that she's smart
    Cuz she's never been introduced to Mr Semen

    I hope and pray she stays pure until marriage
    If not, I don't wanna see her push a baby carriage

    I sit and wait.....

    For my lovely sister to blossom to the world


    :love:

    she will be just fine
    wit a sister so devine
    her motions is of u
    so her rites of virginity
    will remain
    she's ya sister
    da bond is claim
    she know the choice
    not in guys voice
    her young womanly
    wholesome will blossome
    to a full bloom

    worry not forth just wait
    as tyme takes it place
    tyte
