    Love Me!
    Some kids want Lego’s
    And Tommy Tonka’s transformers
    And I wanted was your heart
    I had Malibu Barbie
    And winne the pooh this and
    Mickey and Minnie new my first name
    But could you possibly know
    That all I wanted was for you to have teatime with me
    Sometime before you started dinner
    In between the yelling @ Big P
    And after you ate
    I wanted you to be my friend
    We relocated to seclusion for you serendipity
    What about mine
    Enthusiastically I jumped in the front seat and we began our journey
    When we left you were
    My foreign friend
    Five and half-hours later I knew you
    We were forever bonded
    Something was missing from my Cinderella story
    Felt like gumbo soup with
    With out the rue?
    Or the Collards with out the greens
    Who would have known it was love.
    By the time we unpacked 13 years flew by and we had seen
    Courtroom after courtroom
    And Judge after judge
    Psychotherapy was worse than physical therapy
    And there still was no love
    Some kids want monopoly, life and shoots and ladders
    All I wanted
    Was a small amount of your time?
    The sound of your voice used to calm
    Mi Alma
    Ahora, el mismo a la lion camiando, paser different lugeres
    You held me before Jah when I was born
    And said this child is yours
    Along my path I’ve claimed what you’ve deimed
    And you can’t recognize love
    Some kids want things and all I ever wanted was for you to hear me
    That has been like blood down my spine
    And pain
    Etched in stone
    Not even you have the power to erase
    So I’m asking you can you at least try
    Before you take your shoes off and turn the T.V. on
    Can you try to just

    LOVE ME.
