We must communicate our needs explicitly in relationships if there's any chance of happiness!

Can U/

stand in the gap for me/

when my body, soul & spirit's on "E"



relieve me?

shield & protect me from undue/



& danger?

Can U?

Can U/

wipe away my tears/

allay my fears/

hold me close/

tell me U'll never let go/

encourage & nurture my/


honor the oath/

we've made to hold each other down/

in the bright Sunshine/

Or when monsoon rains erode the ground?

Can U?

Can U/

send me flowers freshly picked/

comfort me when I'm sick/

& tired of the rat/



smiling face/

cez......that lie/

sometimes &/

don't tell the truth?

Can U?

Can U/

lift me up/

back me/

up &/

lay it down/

just right/

igniting longings within/

& without/

a doubt

make me shout?

turn this mutha' out?

Can U?

Can U/

be the man I need U to be/

the one U want to be/

in totality/

my King/

reigning supreme/

a dream/



Can U?

Can U/

crown me ur Queen/

then by all means/


take advantage of EVERY/


to show me/

that I am ur woman/

& U R/



my man?

Can U/

be that all around/

holistic soothing balm/


under pressure/

with strength, courage & integrity/


beyond measure/

able to defend me/

if need be/

in totality?

Can U?

Can U/

be the one/

U profess to be?

U appear to/


what my heart/


In time/

I'm sure/

we'll see/

Can U/

be the he/

for me?!
