    How will I know if it's you
    if you were sent for me
    to claim your prize
    your eternal win
    Am I your helpmate
    your rib, your Eve
    How do I know that I am The One
    The One you were meant to love
    before you relalized what it was?
    When you played with toy cars and trucks
    and I believed that Barbie was living the life
    that all little black girls wanted to live
    Did you know that I was out there
    searching for you
    as you were for me?
    As I grow older. I try and figure out
    what my type of man is,
    the color of his skin
    the shape of his face and eyes
    his hair
    his lips and hands
    there is nothing but an outline there
    a collage of all the men before
    of what I've liked, what made me purr like a kitten
    and the neglect which caused venom to seep within me
    like rainwater into the ground
    While you stayed busy, haphazardly pollinating flowers
    too delicate to touch or too high maintenance
    needing too much care or perhaps too little
    I was waiting in the garden for my caretaker
    but he never came, until now
    my roots are firmly planted in your earth
    you nourish and nurture me
    Planting seeds that only you and I
    can harvest
    Most times, love is too weak a word
    to explain this emotion I feel for you
    You are my Adam
    Promised to you before we were born
    You are my love, my lover
    my friend, my protector
    The Bible says that a woman is not
    to look for a man
    that she should be still
    and he will find her
    I praise HIM that you found me
    what a funny story this will be
    to tell our grandchildren
    the day I was linked forever
    to My Man
    The one who makes my nipples stand firm
    without a single touch
    the one who makes my love come down
    without physically entering me at all
    The One
    the One
    My body craves you as you've said
    like blood or water

    The One

    Thank you, 7th. But these are tales from my past and ideals that I still hold to the present day. I'm holding out for him to find me. :fairy:

    Anyone who could do this, sounds like the one to me. Loved the depictions of being made for one another, heaven sent as it were....very nice.
