I looked for you today, although I knew you were not here. As I sat and watched the people walk by, my mind kept floating, And the memories ached my soul. Every direction I turned reminded me of you. And all the times we stood out here sharing good conversation. I Remembered the smile that engulfed my face from the sight of you. As I sat and waited for someone, I knew it would not be you. My eyes welled up with tears wishing you would just appear. Like you use to. Downtown wont be the same for me. A place I once could not wait to be. Baby, You put the thrill in it for me. Although I know you had no say. Those corporate suits took that away. Leaving me here all alone, looking for my comfort zone. Oh, what I would give to turn back time. To when we first met and I was so mesmerized. By the tall sexy brotha with the beautiful brown eyes. Strolling the sidewalk looking mega fine. I never wanted to see this day, when I could not call you office, And hear you say, “Baby I’m on my way”. I guess I m being selfish in my on little selfish way. Because now work is just work. Not some where we can play. I hope with time the sadness goes away. And I won’t get mad when I see your crew, Strolling the walkway without you. Wondering why it had to be you. Wondering how they could just take away, A mans livelihood. Like you don't have responsibilities and bills to pay. It’s ****** up, but I guess that’s just the American way.
