When we first met, I knew you were the one. I told my momma and all my friends. They all said I'm so happy for you. I said yea me too. It's been a long road trying to find the one who could be patient to not call me her potential but called me her King while turning my potential from a dream to my reality. I prayed for you. I begged God for you. I cried late nights, mid-days and mornings because I was yearning for your love.
I was a broken man and I knew that. I told you from the beginning and you said I got you. Never once did you judge me but yet you chose to cover me and enhance me. I felt like heaven for a bit. You never made me question your love or loyalty. People said go and you said no you go to the people that tried to get you not to believe in me. You lost friends because they said I can't believe you settled for a bum. Sometimes you paid my bills and I was embarrassed but you built me up and made me feel like it was my own money.
I seen your tears for years but yet you clung to faith. You started to pray and say I know this man is my husband and God the man you showed me was wealthy in his mind and would take our family to some amazing places. Because of what God showed you, you helped me developed. You became my Michelle because I knew I couldn't become Obama without you. We submitted to one another. We prayed together. You became the detail to my vision. Where I had no structure you said because you gave me foundation I can build on that. And you did even when I couldn't see how were you gonna build with what looked like an empty canvas at times!
One day I woke up. and i realized I had fallen madly in love, but...it wasn't with you.
You see, all that I described I wanted you to be. You made love so complicated and I said trust me but yet you didn't. I started dreaming you can become this woman to me and you never did. I lost hope and faith. You were the love of my life but you broke me down and never built me back up. With all my scars and pain God sent an angel that became all that I described. She took my wounds even the lashes you gave me and stitched me up. Everything I have I wanted it with you but you couldn't see the King in me. See you were my first love but God gave me a true love and because of her, I now know the meaning of L.O.V.E.
Thank you for breaking me down so that she could build me back up. If you had not done what you did, I would have never been able to appreciate what she did and doing. Thank you to my first love for putting me in the position to fall in love. You made me appreciate something I would have once taken for granted. Oh wait, you took me for granted and now you want me back but its too late because "I fell in love' and I'm glad that it wasn't with you.
