    In his Book

    As the sun sets in the West, and I prepare for my nightly rest.
    I can’t help but think about the moment when my eyes first met,
    yours, and how they changed the process of my thinking for the better. So I decided
    to express those thoughts in this poetic letter.
    Seems like it was yesterday, but It’s been a while back…1989 to be exact.
    When famous faces were painted on blue jeans, Hi top fades, was the in thing
    But in 89, I found something that was always mine.
    Cause it was written in His Book.
    From across the room ,I first saw her from the back.
    I remember them jeans were fitting like that, that Nubian Queen’s image I did catch
    remembering them pockets with the leather patch.
    And at that moment I knew,
    One day it would be me and you.
    Cause it was written in His Book.
    Your Vibe took me by surprise,
    maybe it was your soul, that I saw when I looked in your eyes.
    But you were on another level, a place where I wanted to be but couldn’t.
    Representing a once in a lifetime treasure, so mess it up I wouldn’t.
    So I took a step back until I got my head on straight. Opportunity knocks only when you listen
    and my ears were open, and I was hopin you were thinkin like I was thinkin, and rescue me from myself,
    Cause my ship was sinking.
    Little did we know that the Plan of Man, matters none to he who resides above of the sun.
    God has it Written in His book, so that page I read…and I took, to heart
    Knew you were the one from the very start, of our
    union that spring of 91, My life long search was done. Because in 94 instead of two
    We became one.
    And now we are blessed with a daughter and a son.
    On my knees I thank Him cause I know that’s where my blessing has come from.
    From different parts of the world we came to each other following the same
    street, my street had a lot of curves so sometimes I had to swerve.
    And I don’t deserve, to be with someone like you who completes me, and Turn my dreams to reality.
    I wish I would have known that for my Life long partner, I never ever had to look.
    Because Our union was meant to be, after all.it’s Written in his book.

    thanks to all for the read, I figured that I needed to do something for the person who inspires my life, and I needed to share that with you all.
