    Hmm
    Seems as if they should just be a blur
    Yet the more I think of the memories
    The more vivid they are as if it was just yesterday
    The crush
    That I had
    And thought was past
    Keeps
    Infiltrating my mind
    Causing confusion
    Making my heart awaken to thoughts of you
    When we were young
    But in my mind the memories
    That I see are not of us in our youth
    But we are very grown
    And grown enough
    To do what
    grown folks do…

    you see that crush
    has turned to passion
    causing me to envision
    loving you
    beyond how you have been loved before
    for my desire to love you
    is not bound in the physical
    no..anyone can love you that way
    but I want to love you
    mentally
    emotionally
    spiritually

    for if I can love your soul
    then I can truly love your body
    Loving you
    In a special way
    That causes time to stand still
    The kind of love in which
    The season of Summer
    Asks to borrow
    The heat of our passion fire

    Yes I want to love you
    Even though I realize
    I have no right
    Yet my heart
    Has created a chamber
    In its recesses
    Reserved with your name on it
    I know
    That you may have other suitors
    And that is not my desire
    For suitors come and go
    But soul ties are forever

    And so my memories
    Have forged ahead through the annals of time
    And have burst forth through the present
    Letting me know that
    They are a part of me
    Forever and always
    And therefore I let them
    Never looking back
    Never regretting
    Just moving forth
    Being honest
    With what my heart
    Craves

    And what does it crave?
    Look into a mirror
    And you shall see the reason
    My heart continues to beat…

    And, in my head, all I could hear was the Chi-Lites>>>.
