I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN
I met him in the city of angels Fresh out of school, he was taking a course His smile so divine, I was glad when he became mine… Then I let him go… I should have known it was you The formal introduction, was so simple my corporate guy, loved the way he rocked that suit and tie. The one whose eyes smile when around me The one who is there when naysayers surround me I was naive, maybe a bit foolish I trusted in words was a bit impatient I should have waited for his next move As time went by it just happened Got carried away by the sweet words of another Now you are gone but definitely not in the arms of another Your heart now guarded, I sit and ponder I should have known it was you Your soft voice when you address me Your warm touch when you undress me The taste of your lips, when we kiss Those are some things I really miss Sincerity in words and also in action Compassionate u are, caring, attentive U wanted the best for me Supported my hustle I should have known it was you But I was carried away, Carried away by what seemed like a happier life without you. but I never did find that peace without you Overtime I began to reason I saw the truth after many seasons The sweet words failed me The promises denied me Now I’m feeling all alone Wishing I started my life with you I know with you I would have a happy home Though you were never really gone You kept in touch But not that much You let me know that u still cared I avoided it cos I was scared Years gone by we meet again Desire still apparent in your eyes We sit and talk You hold my hand You make me smile You make me laugh You kiss my lips While grabbing my hips We make sweet love It feels amazing You catch me gazing Thinking to myself Cud u be back in my life This journey has been so rife Cos now I fully realize In my element I need u At my best I crave u With all my soul I respect u With every breathe I take I love u. I should have known it was you. It couldn’t have been anybody but you.
