    So Deep
    (aka No Woman Blues II)

    Over four thousand years ago, Ptahhotep
    ancient African wise man
    with the keys to eternal wisdom in his hand
    counseled against the negative side- effects
    that accompany impatience
    when he wrote, quote
    “what God gives comes by itself”

    So with patience
    I wait, anticipate
    The mate of my fate
    With faith
    I contemplate
    Wonder about the date
    When satisfaction will come
    For my taste
    For sweetness
    My appetite for affection
    For the touch of softness
    For the sight of closeness
    For the sound of pounding hearts in passion
    For the smell of the flavorful fragrance
    of beautiful Black womanhood
    I wait on…

    High-level spiritual principles proclaim
    That reality exists in a place
    That transcends space and time
    So that which will be already is
    Just isn’t manifest in the flesh yet
    So no need to fret
    Wishing you could get
    What’s coming your way
    It’s already there
    If you can get deep enough
    To realize it

    What God gives comes by itself
    And already exists
    So I’m enjoying my fate
    And my mate to be
    Because she is
    So close
    So sweet
    So soft
    So passionate
    So beautiful
    And my love
    With her
    Is
    So deep

    The love
    Of my life
    Is
    So deep

    Life
    Is
    So deep
