Was it love at first sight?
I don’t know,.but it was something, to be sure.
Others treated me like trash
You treated me like class..
I’ve traded my beer for champagne
My faded jeans and tops
For designer clothes from Rodeo Drive
My old VW beater for a red Ferrari
Wal-Mart panties for Victoria’s Secret
Payless shoes for Ferragamos
Fake pearls for Harry Winston diamonds
Then you gave me you.
I had been alone for so long
Desperate and needy
Callous and greedy
You taught me when to laugh
When others were silent..
You taught me to dance
When others wouldn’t
You taught me to love the unlovable
Turn from the haters
And not judge them
For I have not walked in their shoes.
You gave me hope when
Things looked hopeless
I learned how to make love
Instead of fucking.
You said to not feel shame for my past
But to embrace it and move on
No more catcalls from crotch grabbing jerks
A smile and a nod from rich, powerful men greets me now.
I am what I am today because of you.
Yes, you gave me a new life
Love, hope, and adventures around the world.
Most of all, you gave me our sons
I’m now infused with your grace and charm.
Your wit and your stylish words
Roll of my tongue now with ease.
My heart soars at the very mention of your name.
And sinks when I turn around
And you’re not there.
It was paradise, brief, but paradise
Yes, baby, it was paradise
And now, you’re gone
Where are you, honey?
The only reason I’m smiling
Instead of crying
Is because I know that
Wherever you are baby
You’re going to be okay.
Because I gave you me
The heart of a lioness
The fangs of a Cobra
And the strength to go on
