    l need to know that...
    you undoubtedly love me.
    you frequently say,
    "i love you"
    l need to know that...
    it's more than words and
    not just a routine you've
    gotten into.

    the good morning &
    good night kisses
    are they as sweet as
    in the beginning?
    can you feel me
    ...without
    a single touch and
    vividly see me with
    your eyes shut?

    l need to know that...
    you absolutely love me.
    can you inhale and
    smell the scent of me
    without me in the vicinity?
    can you completely sense
    when l need to be made love to
    or simply cuddled and listened to?

    l need to know that
    you genuinely...love me.


    l feel you

    l need to know that you feel me near..
    when l'm away setting our path
    for the future
    with you on my mind everyday..
    know that l do love you genuinely
    more than "i love you's" can say and actions can convey..

    l need to know if through life's changes you will stay the same.
    they say you can fall out of love
    l don't know..
    maybe it's fortune and fame, the intimate shame.
    i need to know that to love me sacredly is your aim
    so can i take you to that place
    where our spark became a flame?

    what are you thinking when at night as we lay, you stare
    as i try to interpret the poetry in your glare?
    can the hands that massage me still drift my mental through the air?

    i have to know...

    i need to know if we
    can take hold of the rod
    and part our red seas
    in the name of God and walk a clear path to destiny
    to the promises of you and i
    which lie ahead of me
    l need to know that
    you love me...infinitely.

    if so, let it be...

    so what's the answer

    allow me to fall in line with my bruthas and sistahs. this piece provokes a thought that begs for an answer to that EVERYONE question...
    is our love the way it used to be?
    are you still down with YOU and ME?
    as time moves on through the sunset's haze
    will you be there tomorrow
    and the other days

    loving the collaboration...and the flow of this.

    THANKS.
