    From Stevie Wonder's "Rocket Love":

    You got me riding in your rocket
    gave me a star, but at a half a mile
    from heaven you dropped me back down
    to this cold, cold, world....

    *********************

    Like the wonder of rocket love
    your love took me out of this stratosphere
    to touch the stars above
    and I've told you a zillion times my dear
    just how high we soared, and at times we still
    do become airborne as you capture me...
    You're like a poetic meteor that lands on my windowsill
    just waiting for my head to touch the pillow
    and the moment it does, the embers from your sky
    set a fire within my spirit, igniting it into flight
    It is there that I see you, smiling on a cloud, as you lie
    in wait, unbelievably, for the likes of, me
    You take my hand, and we trip the lights fantastic
    visiting the unknown dimensions of our minds
    of what could be...and the possibilities, simply orgasmic
    as our souls surrender to mutual eclipses of love.
    The north star covers us with a blanket of golden star dust
    shielding us from the other planets, as you lay me down upon
    one of Saturn's rings. My nebula receives you, and I trust
    that you will be gentle with each cosmic thrust
    And you are...like a fiery comet gently wrapped in a cloud
    And the universe surely hears our cries
    as our bliss screams out loud
    I know that you feel me
    Surely, I feel you
    Certainly this time, you will allow me to touch
    you after I awake, touch the dream I desire so much...
    But then
    Once again
    You release me
    causing me fall
    allowing all...the hopes, reasons, passion,
    and love...
    to come crashing down with me.
    Now earthbound
    I somberly piece together, all the
    broken pieces that lie scattered on the ground...
    I know you love me, and I love you
    But this is no fairy tale, and what if the next time
    even all the king's horses and all the kings men
    can't even put me back together again?
    What will become of me, then?
    This rocket love
    How I love you so
    And you can land here again
    but only after you definitely know
    your love won't lose it's grasp of my hand
    and suddenly, let me go...

    Hi sista watiz
    this is a heartfelt flow
    it like being taken to that next level
    and just let go
    but once you reach that level again
    you gotta hold on
    Very deep drop sis

    Peace
