    yes i see you
    mmph, lawd hav mercy
    there is nothing in this world more beautiful
    than my sistas smile
    i saw you just the other day
    standing gracefully in line buying groceries
    hot as hell all around
    but you were still fresh as spring rain
    smiling at your child playing carelessly
    assuredness in soft mocha brown
    eyes that carry the domain of my secrets
    and all is right with the world
    i'll push your cart to the car
    place the bags inside
    no thanks are necessary my sista
    my service to you is unquestionable
    as i walk away i want to leave with you
    the memory you make life worth living

    yes i did see you
    holding a stack of books in those delicate arms
    allow me to help you with that load
    as a brotha i'm here to carry the weight for you
    dark chocolate essence
    natural too
    that smile takes my breath away everytime
    i don't know what to do
    let me share in the knowledge you aquire
    in fact, i should pick up more books too
    we shall read on the magic of our union
    from yesterdays goodbye to tomorrows kiss
    this will prevent our undoing
    you question my intentions silently
    don't worry my sista, this is not the regular
    a few moments are more than enough
    to feel the glory of your presence
    i walk away happily
    while whispering to my ancestors about our meeting

    yes i see you
    working hard today
    stamping prices and delegating responsibility
    my sista do your thang
    honey toasted almond
    with authority that doesn't come from the wrong desire
    helping me fine exactly what i need
    while setting my heart on fire
    i know you're tired right now
    but it doesn't show in the smile you give me
    makes things warm and cozy
    reminds me of home
    yes i'll take this...and this...and put this on layaway
    no, i won't ask for your number
    just to be near you is enough
    to know there is hope for my childrens future
    taking my bags i turn back and look
    see your smile just once more
    you wave in a way that lets me know
    loving you is unconditional

    yes i see you
    everyday in all kinds of ways
    for those i didn't mention don't think i forgot
    i see you too
    making the peace in loves imagination
    i bow my head to you
    mmph...lawd hav mercy
    i see you right now
    and there is nothing in this world more beautiful
    than my sistas smile
