    I want to write the lyrics of your song
    And sing them off your lips
    I want to be the softness of your cheeks
    And the warmth of your mouth
    Mmmmmmmmmm
    I wonder if this is what loving you should be
    Like eating hot sweet potato pie and you loving it
    Tell me
    Does the smoothness of satin rest in your kiss
    Is your whisper soft and alluring
    Like waves that drift ashore
    Does your hand hold the pressure of solitude
    I was just wondering down the hallways of my imagination
    Tonight I will teach you a scripture
    The verses are very simple.
    It is in her nature to chase after her feelings
    If you asked her she couldn’t explain it
    Except to say
    I was created to walk under the shades of his palm trees
    To be covered by him
    And rest in his embrace
    I must sit with him
    He keeps me cool
    I must trace the marks of his root
    I am fulfilled in his arch
    Without him
    There would be no need to want
    Now I settle in the thought of you
    My arms wrapped tightly
    Yet gently around you
    You are relaxed in my embrace
    Asleep, secure in the future
    So at peace with it all…….
    I searched for you to today
    In the footsteps of others
    Hoping it would lead me to your feet
    I am content to love you from afar
    And to trace your footprints
    Quietly and softly

    Softly
    I want to whisper da gentle breeze
    as i lace my soul upon ya spirit
    and kiss the winds of thy lips
    and walk unto the path u laid
    in the roads of sweetness
    each footnote made like melodies
    singing in my heart
    i want to embrace you everlasting
    where it cascade abuntely
    upon this golden journey
    within my doorway of many morrows
    i stand before u gracefully
    for our temple gates open in rejoice
    for the love untamed
    see i walked looking for u in hope
    that i see u through my own slumber
    when i know not of you but feel u
    from da orbs of ya self inner acts
    i know u there to be held
    on every breath i hear aloud
    on da distance shores .
