I can never forget you, I cherish every memory that we share.
No matter what happened, you will forever be special to me
My heart delighted in your presence, my smile never left my face
I understand that it’s best for us not to be together
But I always have a flicker of hope
One day, the time will be right, your helpmate in me you will find
You will be a man completed in God, with your rib nested inside of me
So I will leave the light on, hoping it will guide you right to me
I have yet to lose the fire, the small flame dwindles in my heart
I understand that maybe you were meant to be a lesson, nothing more
Perhaps you were sent to show me that the relationship I desire
The one I have yet to see a real life example of, is possible
So instead if being a staple, you are simple a lesson in love
a prototype of the man created to compliment me, perfectly
Only God knows the answer to the question inside of me
And I trust this process that I don’t always understand.
But until then, I will continue to leave the light on for you
Hoping that one day, just maybe, the knock on my door will finally come
And I will open up myself to you again, and dim this light inside of me.
