    your picture was almost stuck
    in a drawer
    somewhere

    the poems i wrote about u
    were almost stuck
    in the same drawer

    the love i felt for you almost faded
    the tears i shed were almost evaporated
    my soul was getting used to the pain

    and then you called

    proving to me that you care
    disproving my beliefs
    that there was someone prettier
    that there was someone better
    that there was someone who was more
    perfect for you
    than me

    i almost started the process
    of letting go
    releasing you
    getting used to not loving you
    a few more tears
    a few more heart wrenching cries
    a few more screams
    from the bottom of my
    almost fading spirit
    and the phone call would have meant
    nothing

    but it did mean something
    it proves
    that i was wrong
    because
    i thought you were gone
    but thank God
    you're here
    to make me the woman i need to be
    to give me focus
    to make my life beautiful
    you're here
    for me to love
    you're here
    to remind me
    that there is a God
    and he loves me
    because
    i thought you were gone
    but i was wrong
    just like He's here all the time
    so are you.
    and i love you.

    great piece! girl... i am feelin' you on this to the third degree. i've been through this so many times before... my man and i live an hour apart so we usually talk on the phone during the week. but last week was different, he started workin' more and calling less. i was paranoid, not sure if it was work or somethin' else. but then he called last night and everything is cool. so... it's a coincidence that you posted this.
