Your eyes they tie me down so hard/ I’ll never learn to put up a guard/ So keep my love, my candle bright/ Learn me hard, oh learn me right

This ain’t no sham/ I am what I am/ I leave no time/ For a cynic’s mind

We will run and scream/ You will dance with me/ Fulfill our dreams and we’ll be free

We will be who we are/ And they’ll heal our scars/ Sadness will be far away

Do not let my fickle flesh go to waste/ As it keeps my heart and soul in its place/ And I will love with urgency but not with haste

there is a difference between loving with urgency and loving with haste. urgency suggests importance and forethought. haste suggests recklessness.  come find me with urgency but not with haste.

dear future husband,

please teach our sons the art of romance. teach them to court and charm.  teach them to call when they say they will.  teach them respect for themselves and for their dates.  teach them that how they dress reflects how they respect themselves and others. teach them to win and lose with dignity (no usain bolt level of ego).  teach them to have direction, ambition and a work ethic.  teach them to pray and hope. teach them sympathy and how to serve.

i am so tired of guys not hitting this standard. we women have cried, pulled our hair and wasted so much time on boys who couldn’t be men.

teach our sons to be men. in essence, teach them to be you.

dear future husband:

i constantly am having to remind myself to move on from my past.  i have a few pesky ghosts there, that i need to forget about and enjoy the present.  i would be so upset with myself if i let my baggage get in the way of us working.
