    She was a dream, dream she had to be
    She was the last thought, to enter my head at night.
    First thought I woke to, in morning light
    Though she was the one I preferred, She became my dream deferred.
    How could I have let her leave my side? Why was I full of such pride?
    How could I forget her eyes?
    To look within them is to see clear to eternity.
    Her eyes any man would be privileged to drown in the sea of her tears
    Now it’s my fear not to ever have her near.
    To look once more upon her eyes those precious jewels.
    That reflects her radiance for all to see.
    See I guess you just don’t know, no I guess you just don’t see
    She was beyond physical beauty, yet Beauty she was, to her bone marrow.
    But eternity with her was not in the tarot cards
    Why is it so hard, to be with one you really care for?
    The one you truly adore. I guess you don’t yet know what I mean.
    She was my “Thelma” from Goodtimes without the Afro-sheen
    She was my Nefertiti she was my Kemetic Queen.
    She was my Angela Bassett before “Stella Got Her Grove Back”
    She was my drug more addictive than Crack.
    Mark Anthony if he had met her, would’ve dropped Cleopatra.
    Moses would’ve split seven seas, just to get closer to her divinity.
    To spend time with her at a days length, Samson would’ve given away his strength.
    I swear Solomon would’ve spent every single last piece of his Gold,
    Just to spend two minutes with her soul.
    But me? Foolish I!! I let this virgin go to see a world that she had never known.
    I wish she could now know, my heart she still owns
    Guess by now you’ve figured out, that I loved her. Though she is ten years in my past.
    I really wish our love did last. Because I did love her
    But I guess the only way I can have her now is the thirty-minute glimpses I see of her within nocturnal imageries
    I swear, I would right her a new poem, change my old ways to new ones, buy her the world if I thought it would bring her back to me
    But for now she will always be a dream a dream she will always be.
    But I hope not for eternity.

    she was my cherry upon my sundae...
    she could make a homo go straight...
    help the faithless to have faith
    but for me I am afraid it's too late...
    to another she shares her fate...
    so for now I must patiently wait...
    for the one I can call my own...
