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 Good Times with or without the Afro-Sheen She was my Nefertiti, She was my Nubian Queen She was my Angela Bassett before “Stella Got Her Groove 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 beauty To spend time with her at days length, Sampson 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 know how long my heart She owned Guess by now you’ve figured out, that I loved her, though She is many 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 fifteen-minute glimpses I see of her Within my nocturnal imageries I swear, I would write her new poems change my old ways to new ones Buy her the world if I thought it would bring her back to me But she will always be a dream, a dream she will always be But I hope not for eternity!!!
