    Celebrating your anniversary
    Should be a joyous
    And memorable time
    Marking the day that you said
    I do
    To
    Your
    Boo
    But that’s not the case
    Instead you are alone
    Not the way you planned it
    Just the way it is
    You console yourself in the fact
    That the problem is not you
    But he
    Who denies that you both
    Should be we
    Wished to be taken
    in his arms
    is his love
    in his passion
    You’ll even settle being taken for granted
    If it means he’ll give himself
    Totally to you…

    You begin to think
    What is he thinking
    When he looks at you?
    Does he do it
    With those naughty thoughts
    He used to have?
    Does he wonder what it would be like
    To wine you and dine you
    And then anticipate whatever comes next?
    Does he want to
    Kiss you
    Hold you
    Stroke you
    Make love to you
    Because you make him hot
    Or because he has nothing else to do?

    Yet you move on
    Like the strong black woman you are
    Planning your life
    With or without him
    Moving forward
    While he moves backward
    Knowing that somebody out there
    Still likes the way you walk
    the way you talk
    The way you kiss
    And wonders about the way you…

    It’s your anniversary
    Enjoy it because not only
    Does it mark the day
    That you said I do
    To your boo
    It marks the day
    When you decided
    It’s time for a change.

    oooooooooooooooooooooweeeeee!

    You write with such empathy towards women, I know you must have an innate ability to understand both sides of human nature to be such a consumate writer of love poems and matters of the heart.

    Blessings On ya House!
