    For a moment I lost my sense of time and space
    I forgot that the Master had created me a place

    Instead I was looking for someone else to give me validation
    As if my very existence need some kind of Justification

    I was handing out pie like my name was Miss Sarah Lee
    Hoping that some night someone would truly love me

    Not just take the goodies offered to every trick or treater
    Thankful there's one reading the manuel provided by the creator

    Looking beyond all my faults, seeing my overwhelming need
    An amazing king that was living by such a different creed

    Refusing to lay with me in the dark hours of the night
    Proclaiming instead that I was to be loved in the light

    When I question him of his purpose and reason
    He took the time to school me for a season

    Whispering that your worth as a women is untold
    You're worth more than any treasure of silver and gold

    You're beautiful, intelligent, multi-talented, multi-dimensional,
    Sumptuous, sensual, mind-blowing and completely sensational

    At some point, you allowed someone to trample upon your esteem
    But i'm here to tell you that you are the completeness of my dream

    I was humbled by his reply and all I could do was bust in tears
    For I been reminded of a lesson that I forgotten over the years

    A woman's worth can never be measured
