To My Black Pearl

In a world filled with lost black girls
I found my cultured pearl
highly respectable
and very intellectual

with beauty that extends beyond the skin
to me she is far beyond a 10
in life the best blessing

I have ever encountered 
through the Lord I found her

angel with no wings
that plays my heart strings
and gets me so excited
until finally I had to write it
this is my heart where you are cordially invited

to stake your claim
plant your flag,write your name
for eternity you will course through my veins

your the ying to my yang
the name my heart sang
everything is you are my everything

I love you is a understatement none can take your place
your my oxygen without you I would suffocate

We moved so rapidly
became a family
you bought out the man in me
even had my little man for me

love of my life completely free from drama
worthy of being my wife, I did it right not just a babies mama
so I will honor
you forever shatada


To my wife Shatada who loved me unconditionally. SEPT 4 2008 MAKES 9 YEARS.
