As I grow into the women I was created to be I stumbled upon the man that I felt was made
for me… I have to admit my flaws was the reason this union could never be but it could
never hide the love I felt for thee
Now that I’m stronger, wiser, and no longer spiritually bankrupted I still pray that one
day this man could muster the words that I long to hear…
Love he stated I knew nothing about….
Silly girl you should never love with expectations, limitations but with an open heart
full of acceptance…and unselfishness
As my heart sank deeper into this harden shell of rejection and despair I stand screaming
to the top of my lungs I DO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS…
But unfortunately he does not notice or hear me… when I pray at night that my soul will
win this fight SO I CAN finally get this walk of salvation right…
But precious KING of mine I do know what LOVE IS: unselfish loyal and benevolent concern
for the good of another
Never have I ever wished you any harm my precious KING or that you lack any of GODS FAVOR
LOVE WILL MAKE YOU DO THAT… PRAY FOR SOMEONE NO MATTER WHAT…
But as I always do my KING I will go back and start this sketch yet again maybe next time
I will get the color scheme right that when you look into my eyes you can see and know
that you are loved
LOVE WILL MAKE YOU ENDURE…. EVEN WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WILL NEVER……..
REMEMBER I’M YOUR BIGGEST FAN……….
