    Baby.. it's good to see you.
    I have been calling and
    you haven't answered your phone.

    What is going on?

    Are you nervous about being seen with me.
    I must ask how serious are you about a relationship with me?
    The normal reaction of an honest woman is to be very pleased
    and honored to be seen with her man.

    You should be willing to show me off and
    introduce me to your friends and
    love walking in public with me.

    But you always want to meet in dark places.
    I want to travel with you.
    Take you places you have never been.
    Places I have dreamed about, heard about.

    Am I just someone you’re stringing along?

    Forgive me for bringing this out up front.
    I’m going to be frank.
    If we click this could be the best experience of our lives.

    Don’t just look to me for money,
    singing a sweet and silly song.
    Every problem we have had
    can be traced back to you not being honest.
    Your doing me wrong.

    Maybe this is a bit harsh but I need to know.
    Being honest has to be a part of our understanding.

    We began as close friends.
    I should be able to trust you.
    Let’s talk about this and not leave anything out for later.
    Or when we get to know each other better.
    Trust is pivotal.

    Are you seeing another man?

    Give me every reason to trust you.
    And don't play with my feelings.


    We have to stay real.
    I am an honest and caring man
    who will take care of you
    and I will love, nurture and
    devote myself to you.

    I just need to know. Are you willing to do the same?

    I'm sorry, I know these are hard words to hear,
    but the problem is.You make it hard for me
    to continue to care about you.

    No I won’t just say what you want to hear.
    This is serious and if we ever had a chance
    for a real relationship there has to be true and honest romance.

    This is an opportunity for us to learn so much about each other.
    So I want to make it clear.

    This doesn't mean.
    I don't care about you.
    It means that I care about us.

    If I give you all of me.
    I should never have to wonder.

    to hodee

    you are my man but like Usher I must confess
    its time i tell the truth and avoid this test

    when we first met i was in love with you
    didnt have the strength or a clue

    to tell you i was in a relationship
    all was forgotten when i kissed your lips

    when i'm with you there are no troubles
    sometimes we laugh not in single but triples, doubles

    when i'm with you, you make me smile
    being with you is worthwhile

    i never intended for this to happen this way
    i tell ya your the one that makes my day

    he dont treat me like a queen
    thats why when we together i treat you like a king

    baby i promise it will be over between me and him
    i want your understanding please daddy don't condemn (me)

    and walk away from all what we shared
    i know you couldn't because you care

    i can show you better than i can tell ya
    you know i still want to be with cha

    so baby hold on to me cause you are my man
    you best to believe your my number 1 fan

    I love you

    I hear what you are saying.

    The words they don’t sound true.
    I can get over my doubt we can
    work this out I do have faith in you
    With me standing here the words I hear.
    You’re saying I love you.

    If you felt for me when I kissed you.
    And he faded from your mind.
    How come he is still getting your time?

    Call him now, let me
    hear you say the words.

    If you rather not I understand.
    When you see that cat please
    tell him that now I'm your only man!

    I need you to find that strength to tell
    him you’re finished with him and it’s
    all about me and you.

    In a man it’s called courage;
    in a woman it is called will.

    I can take the truth.
    Because it is all I plan
    on bringing to you.

    You know we have some good times.
    Laughing about some funny things and
    some things we know are wrong.

    I know you Nevar would leave me lonely.
    I know also that you will Nevar leave me blue.
    Nevar leave me darling.
    He isn’t good to you.

    Baby I’m going have to place my
    heart in your hands.

    I trust it’s worth it
    to be your only man.
    I’m gonna hold on to you my love.

    I know we can change the world and
    stand this town on its head.

    Come here let me hold you.
    I know I would Nevar
    be happy without you.
    I love you too.

    Lets do this.

    Well Hodee, I think the main thing I like about this is it's genuine quality, this indeed felt like part of an actual conversation. And the last two lines just brought the entire piece home. I loved this.

    to hodee

    Hodee my love is that the way you feel
    I promise to love only you conditionally

    I'm sorry I had put you through all this hell
    With me is where you need to dwell

    My house is not a home unless your there
    to wake up beside you running your fingers through my hair

    I hate even that we had to get to this point
    Baby I'm leaving him now your all I want

    And need to fulfill your every desire
    Your my Earth, the Wind and my fire

    Baby as these tears fall from my face
    I'm asking you to forgive me for my deception and not
    let me fall from grace

    Because I realize that you was always the one
    That my love for you now weighs a ton

    I could neva no neva hurt you this way again
    This why I want to mend

    The broken heart I had left you with
    I cant believe I was willing to continue this lie
    when he wasn't worth spit

    Your my light Hodee don't ever let me go
    Your my world and all I need to know

    I promise to be faithful to you and only you
    There's nothing in the world I wouldn't do for you

    Your my soulmate, my lover
    the only thing left for me is to discover

    That my King,my love, my man stand before me now
    We gonna take this day by day and get through this some how

    Baby I'm on my knees begging you daddy don't ever take your love away
    Because if you did I couln't, wouldn't make it through the day

    Your my strength, my rock Hodee love me like it was our first
    I promise to neva let you remain face down in the dirt

    Cause like a Phoenix we will rise above the ashes
    It's time we run to each other see who the fastest

    The fastest to run into your awaiting arms
    To once again feel your prescence your charms

    Baby the only thing for me to say at this point is

    Hodee since the day you came into my world has been nothing but joy
    I'm asking from the bottem of my heart to put the past behind
    and lets be all what we can be
    I know its a man job to ask this question but i feel at this point
    I should have the honor of saying this

    Will you marry me?
