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.
