    To have and to hold as we walk through this life arm in arm
    How did I get to this divorce platform?
    He was what I thought was right for me
    Everybody said that we were meant to be

    Like Cliff and Clair Huxtable and Martin and Gina
    What started out sweet ended up corrupt like Ike and Tina
    Never in a million years could I have forseen this fate
    But LovesDestiny I remain because Luther says for love just wait

    Although I’ve been living in what seemed to everyone the perfect life
    Going from friend, to girlfriend, to fiancé, to wife
    Young and scared accepting whatever was thrown my way
    All I wanted was No More Drama in a world that thrives on it everyday

    But nevertheless, here I stand…
    Yes, as weak as I am, I still stand!
    The winds of neglect and the storms of emotional strife
    almost took me down in one swoop…almost destroyed my life

    Guilt, pain, and heartache all loom mighty in my heart
    But this strong ebony queen knows that ahead of me is a new start
    Alicia says the past is the past so I’ll take the battle scars that I’ve earned
    and turn them into lines of love chalking it up to another lesson learned.

    I will leave my old baggage at the door ready to start anew
    The negativity doesn’t get to come on this journey with me and you
    Who is you? Dare you ask that question?
    Ok, ok, I’ll tell it…I’ll make the confession.

    “You” are the one that my heart is looking for somewhere out there in this place
    I don’t think we’ve ever met before or maybe we have and you’re standing right here in my face
    “You” close the gap and succeed at filling the empty void
    “You” solve that puzzling maze in my heart just like a modern day Freud

    I seek you, desire you, yearn for you and crave you
    One day I’ll find you standing right here in plain view
    But for now I must be content to be patient for my belove
    Never been a better time than this to hold fast and wait for love.

    I can relate to so much in the piece, for I was once one half of what was considered a couple who would forever hold. We didn't. But, I still stand, and yes, if we just wait, our complement awaits us as well. Superb write.

    YG: Thank you for the love!

    Sis Watz: I know exactly what you mean and maybe sometimes we "hold" on longer than we should.

    DSS: You are always so encouraging. Thank you!

    I can't express the realism i feel
    when it comes to love and the deal
    so i sit and wonder about true fate
    will it come or will it be to late
    as i search deeper and strong
    i realize there was no need to keep holding on
    so i journey out into tyme
    to fine what's really mines

    closing my eyes and taking it all in wow !! sis u set the stage
