Love's Ache

As I walk I watch from the corner of my eye hoping to see you running after me,
Hoping that you will scream out to me saying that you can't let me leave.
I visualize you grabbing me by the arm and then holding me tightly forbidding my escape,
But no matter how far I walked there wasn't even a hint of a shadow belonging to your shape.

Why...why must people consist on standing between happiness that isn't dramatizing no one,
And what is wrong when two people become so fond to each other that they naturally form a
connection that's bigger than the sun?
My heart hurts...not because of us...but because they won't leave us alone,
My soul aches because it knows there is no longer an "us" that use to brighten my tone.

I tried to fix the problem like a man and admit to my misunderstanding of what was said,
Though no one believes black men no more because the majority only thinks with their head.
(think about it)
I fought for what I have let find me so I can hold on to it eternally,
It was this love that transformed my violent thinking to something more gracefully.

All I want is the angel God blessed me with back to my side so I can smile again,
Return my rib to me so I can live the life I came to cherish so we can make amends.
I will always love you...that's what she said to me before I had to break away,
I will always love you even after the end of time...that's what she heard me say.

It's have to do what you must to rebuild your family,
That I respect and would rather happen instead of us being selfish quite frankly.
Seeing those tears brought tears that I thought no longer existed,
At that moment of time the light that was hidden away in my heart revisited.

I pray one day all the drama...confusion...and everything else will pass so we can be
together once more,
Because I can't remember a time when I've meet a woman that I truly adored.
