Can A Love Change?

Updated on December 23, 2018

When you take chance at love, is it subject to change?

Do the words I love you mean anything? Do they hold any weight?

Can hearts drift away from one another?

Can love be strong enough to turn the once enemy into an again lover?

Is the marriage paper something to savor?

Do the wedding rings

mean a thing?

Is matrimony real or phony?

Does wedlock keep things tighter than a dreadlock?

Can second best become first place?

Can the promises of a lover be fulfilled, on what pretenses are they based?

How does one define a relationship to be everything hoped for?

How does one pick themselves up off of the cold floor?

To prepare themselves to love again after being scorned

Because I've had too many signs to be forewarned

I've fell in love & then back out

I've been depressed, lost, it was love i would doubt

Why should I give this another try?

Maybe it's not so bad to be single & die

Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be

Maybe I wasn't meant to have a true love or to taste something so sweet

Love doesn't necessarily guarantee happiness or contentment

Women aren't there to gratify me sexually or for me to be complimented

I've been married & divorced

Would I do it again? It can't be forced

I gotta take my time & do me for right now

When she's the one I'll know because God will show me how

So why do marriages fail after 5, 10, 20, & multiple years

It's because people are selfish & chase orgasms or give into their fears

The only things that can mend & heal a marriage are God, church, prayer, & therapy

Taking time out for yourselves individually & trusting that things will be prepared, see

To have someone to love, someone to hold

Someone different than the rest & someone so bold

Who's willing to take a chance for you & you for them

The love that presents itself when you're not trying to pretend

You're not trying to make another jealous, you're not trying to front

You're just raw & real & you stop your hunt

When you're not looking for anything & it falls in your lap

That's the love I want & you have the heart but I have the map

Look for me to come in & change your life

Because one day who knows, maybe you will be my wife.....
