    Wait For Me
    By: afroprincess

    Long before I made this decision
    I was sure I’d find a man to honor my wishes
    To be the one who kept it all together
    Even through hard times and the better
    I kept my words and never did they waiver
    Not until you stepped up and made me want to change in your favor
    But you reminded me that it wasn’t time for that to be
    And not to worry cause you would wait for me

    A temptation knocking strong on my door
    We could’ve been either here, there or even one the floor
    All you had to do was give the word
    A lust for you so strong it was absurd
    You could make the temperature rise with a sigh or a look
    But my decision you never took
    Held on to my senses even when I lost them
    No matter what was said we never took it past a PG- 13 film

    Determined not to make me change my mind
    You didn’t enter into this relationship blind
    I was upfront and honest about my wishes
    Not to give my love away until I became a Mrs.
    You never made me feel bad like the ones before
    That was cause you said you wanted more
    More than I had ever given another man
    Loving my soul as well as my body was your plan

    Long after I made my decision
    I was blessed to really find a man that honored my wishes
    I wasn’t the one who always kept it all together
    He was, even through the hard times and the better
    He kept my word at all times, even when they wavered
    He never tried to manipulate them; he didn’t, not even in his favor
    All the while whispering to me that one day that time it will be
    But until then he’d always wait for me

    To find a man who will wait for you, who will not try to sway you especially when you are feeling pressured, is a man worth his weight in gold. What a blessing. This flowed like a breath of fresh air poetess.

    He knows, what some men don't...that he found the rearest Gold. Something he can cherish and nurture divinely.
    He saw a "Blessing" and took it.
    Great write poet.

    Thank You

    Thank you for your comments. You are definitely right, my man knows he got a good woman... but I know that I was blessed with a fantastic man. I mean everything I write, I get most of my material from personal experience. And this piece is no different, but I didn't write it for me only. I wrote it for my niece who thinks, that for some reason the way she chooses to live her life will destine her to be alone. I wrote this to make her and hopefully other girls, who have made the same decision, know that there is a man out there that will appreciate her and the boundaries she has set for herself as well as her relationships. Thank you again for your comments.:kiss:
