Waitin 4 D 1

by Daniel Mendes

What can I say?
What can I do?
About the reason I be stressing
I'm missing a female in my world
To enjoy lifes blessing

Where's she at?
I pray God sends her quick
Until then I have only myself to confide with
So what am I to do with this love I refuse to throw away
What if I meet my future wife?
I may need it that day
It's like pulling back a dog and he just wants you to let go
Or a dam that's restricting the water flow
What it feels like to have unconditonal love for someone
I've got to know

Wish it was as easy as lighting a candle
Making a wish
Then blow
If so
I'd wish for a perfect wife and to watch my seeds grow...
Gaze into my wife's eyes amazed and say:
"Look, look what we've done
God has blessed us with a beautiful daughter and son"
