Can A Love Change?
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.....
