    I don’t have much

    But know

    ….I have love to give


    I will be your blanket

    To keep you warm

    Be that shoulder you

    Can cry on…

    I will kiss

    ……your tears away

    and wipe away the pain

    I may not have much

    But I can promise

    I can be that

    ….friend you can count on

    A lover to you

    And hold your secrets


    I don’t have much

    But know

    ….I have love to give

    I will….

    Hold you when you feel lost

    Share in your happiness

    And be there in your sadness

    Pick you up when you are down


    I don’t have much

    But know

    ….I have love to give


    Love you like a King

    Not looking for perfect

    We can work it out as we go

    I don’t have much

    But I am willing to share

    …what I have


    so we can become one…….

    Oh, now, this was a warm fuzzy!


    This piece made me think of Aretha...."It's a shame..a shame if you don't share some of your love with me."

    Cuz, Sista, anybody who wouldn't take what you've got to offer must be a fool.

    MzBlkAngel2,
