‘So it seemed, that it was cool, So cool, for everyone to
be in a relationship but me..
So I took matters into my own hands and ended up
with him
Who displayed the characteristics of a CHEAT, a
So.. why was I surprised when he broke into my heart?
Cause it was ME who let him in.
Claiming we were “just friends”..
It was already decided for me by the first date, that
even if he wasn’t, I was gonna make him The One.


You know I was tired of being alone,
And I simply made up in my mind, that it was about
that time, so I decided to drag him along for the ride.
Cause I was always the bridesmaid & never the bride,
A virgin in the physical, but mentally just a grown
woman on the corner in heat!
Who was tired of the wait!
So I was gonna make him The One.
He seemed to have a form of Godliness but not much..
But hey, I can change him! So (honey) I’ll TAKE
him, I mean he’s close enough.
I was ready to sell my aorta for a quarter, not knowing the
value of its use to me


This all ended up in clogging with MY will, but it blocked HIS Will from
flowing through me.
So, I thank Christ that His blood pressure gave this
heart an attack,
That flat lined my obscured vision and put me flat on my
Through my ignorance He sawed,
Through my desires He worked & cracked open my
TO transplant Psalm 51:10
A new heart & a renewed right spirit within!
So now I fully understand,
Better yet I thoroughly comprehend,
How much I NEED to wait for You.


See, the bad thing is that I knew he wasn’t you from
the beginning..
Cause in the beginning was the Word
And he didn’t even sound or shine like Your Son
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks,
And all he could whisper was sweet, empty nothings
Which meant NOTHING.
He couldn’t even pray when I NEEDED him to
Asking him to fast would be absurd!
So forget about him being cleansed & washed with water
through the Word


But I know You..
You were already praying for me
Even never having met me.
Now, let me assure you, I will wait for you.
I will no longer date, socialize or communicate with
carbon copies of you,
Just to appease my boredom or to quench my thirstiness I
have for attention
And short-lived compliments from a sorta kinda, You know.


He is sorta kinda right, but sorta kinda
His first name LUKE,
His last name WARM.
I won’t settle for false companionship
I won’t lay in the embrace of his arms,
Attempting to find some closeness,
But never feeling so far apart cause, I just wanna be
held Cause all I gotta do is Say No!
NO more sessions of almost coming “that” close
Passing winks & buying drinks,
I’ma, I’ma, I’ma flirt!
Well, Who flirts with this ideology?
Can you just tell me how much I can get away with this &
still be truly saved?
Well, NO more.


I’ll stay in my bed alone, and write poems, about how
I will wait for you
He won’t even come close,
Our fingers won’t even interlock
We won’t even exchange breath
Cause I have thoughts that I’ve saved as in a file that
God has only equipped you to open.
I will no longer get weighted down,
From so-called friends & family talks,
About the concern for my biological clock
When I serve the Author of Time.
Who is NOT subject to time,
But I’M subject to Him,
He has the ability to STOP, FAST FORWARD, PAUSE, or
REWIND at any given time


So if we could role play,
You would be Abraham & I would be Sara
Or you can be Isaac & I can be Rebecca; a servant’s
answered prayer
I am bone of your bone, flesh of your flesh,
Made up of your rib Adam!
And once we meet, like electrons
I will be bound to your nucleus, completely indivisible
We even speak the same math: 1 + 1 + 1 = 3, which
really equals 1 if you add HIM.
We were all created in His image,
But you have the ability to reflect, project & even
detect the Son.


If I were to explain what you looked like,
You would have to look like a star,
A son of the Son..
I would gain energy simply from the light on me.
I would need you , in order to complete my photosynthesis
I await your revelation, but once again from the
genesis, I will wait for you.
And I will know you, because when you speak I will be
reminded of Solomon’s wisdom,
Your ability to lead will remind me of Moses,
Your faith will remind me of Abraham,
Your confidence in God’s Word will remind me of Daniel,
Your inspiration will remind me of Paul,
Your heart for God will remind me of David,
Your attention to detail will remind me of Noah,
Your integrity will remind me of Joseph,
And your ability to abandon your own will, will remind
me of the disciples,
Still, your ability to love selflessly and unconditionally will
remind me of Christ.
And I wont need to identify you by any special Matthews or
any special Marks,
Cause His word will be tatted all over your heart.


And as for me, you will know me, and you will find me,
Where the boldness of Esther meets the warm
closeness of Ruth.
Where the hospitality of Lydia is aligned with the
submission of Mary,
Which is engulfed in the tears of a praying Hanna.
I will be the one, drenched in Proverbs 31 waiting for you.


And now to my Father, my Father who has known me before
I was birthed into this earth,
Only if you should see thisĀ¦
I desire Your will above mine,
So even if you call me to a life of singleness,
My heart is content with YOU; the One who was sent.
YOU are the greatest love story ever told,
The greatest story ever known
You are forever my judge & Im forever Your witness
And I pray that Im always found on a mission about my Father’s business
Oh, I will always be Yours!
And I will always wait for You Lord, more than the
watchmen wait for the morning,
More than the watchmen wait for the morning; Ladies, let us WAIT.
