    leaving post-it notes all over the **** place
    (weell!)
    uh
    that love now
    (mmm...)
    that love that makes you jump up in tha mornin
    dancin like you ain't got a care in the world
    feelin free kinda love
    ya'll don't hear me in here today
    (weeell!)
    uh
    now i won't say that everything is perfect
    (take yo time)
    uh
    cause we all have our discomfort and dismays
    (mmm...)
    but i want to tell you this mornin
    when ya feelin down love can save ya today
    it can save ya
    (weeell)
    it can save ya
    (weeell)
    uh

    never turn away
    uh
    love will save ya today
    (weell)

    car done tore up
    that man or woman done left
    loss yo job
    down to yo last dime and got to feed the family
    uh
    but don't let those things turn yo love into frustration
    (weell)
    aggravation
    (weell)
    hesitation
    (weell)
    inebriation

    brothas and sistas i'm telling you ta hold on
    cause love is here today
    here in so many ways
    answering every day we pray
    and it will work it out for ya
    uh

    cause its all about love ya'll
    its about love
    let the world say amen

    ...and now we'll have a selection from our choir

    Destee: Your MLK church fan!!! I laughed out loud at that! Major flashback from my childhood!

    Derrick: You are so multi-dimensional in your writing. I love the way you change up your style from piece to piece. Much of your stuff is thought provoking, other pieces are incredibly erotic, and then you show us your playful side with something like The Sermon. Such flexibility is the sign of a poet who truly respects the craft.
