It's clear you've done no evil,
you've only done what's right.
But often times
you'll come to find
that its never quite enough.

You gave her half your world,
the other half to fight.
But every day
you'll hear her say
"I pray men like you should come my way."

You smile nonetheless
but it pains you to accept,
that you'll never be the man,
to give her the crown,
the crown she so desperately desires to wear.
I'd pull up in an old white Chevrolet,
promptly placed in park.
Stepping out to see your brilliance,
your face as pure as your heart.

I'd rush around the car,
run to sweet embrace.
Eye locked with eye,
putting lovers in their place.

I'd stumble for the handle,
to open up your door - locked?
Peering through the window,
I'd see them on the floor.

I'd turn around to tell you,
to see your smirking snare.
I'd ask you what's so funny?
You'd say, "I have a spare!"

In my mind I paint a picture,
there is no Chevrolet.
but as for that fair beauty,
perhaps I'll find her today.
Behind your teeth,
an unsure smile?
You radiate a joy.
A joy inconceivable to some.
This joy, a joy desired by many.
Speak and pray tell,
the responsibility behind such happiness,
does it drain your soul?
Or fill it all the more.
I pray,
Should this excess become strenuous,
Lay down upon my shoulders.
Because I see you over there.
You're smiling,
and I like that.

You fear you've lost,
Your love at last.
That your full heart,
has come to pass.
The time well spent,
Was not in vain.
The memories made,
Will now sustain.
Hearts will heal,
Mend and restore.
In God, at last,
Do not ignore.

Pick up a type writer,
to become a type fighter.
A soldier for the right,
truths hurt,
but lies bite.
Place pen to paper,
to guard, trim, and taper,
cut down the transgressions,
invoke love and confessions.
Speak out in loud tone,
Speak words into stone.
Hold voice on a platter,
Climb choice like a ladder.
Be strong now to influence,
give up for no instance.
Hold fast and stay strong,
sing clear your song.
Doubt not who you are...
...For your voice is heard far!

Oh Lord,
the days you'll spend,
With a vision of hope,
and love's extend.
Oh Lord,
the hours will pass,
The scope of time,
in heart will clash.
Oh Lord,
the years elapsed
With soul on fire,
and mind collapsed.
Take into heart,
the soul and mind,
In logic's place,
your heart will find,
a love that's pure
and big and bold...
...within lovers hand,
your hand might hold.

Esperándola,
siempre esperando.
Cuyo corazón esta abierto.
Cuyo corazón esta listo.
Esperándola,
Estoy esperando.
Ella es la mujer de mis sueños,
Ella es la sangre de mis venas.
Esperándola,
Esperando a Dios,
para enviarme este dama,
este dama de mis sueños.
