Lived to love you

She lived to love you
Used to eat, sleep, dream, and breath you
Used to wake up in the middle of the night and smile just because her heart fluttered thoughts of the night before.
She used to pray for you
She stayed
But your love wasn't true
And her heart broke 'cause of you
Damn, Black Man, why can't you see
That when a GREAT black queen, yes the one you've always seen
Shining through her eyes, her smile a sunrise
Her heart pure platinum and jewels
Your home girl from the old school
The one who has your back
Through thick, thin, white, or black
Putting her on the back burner
Like she's yesterday's news
But, Black Man, you just don't know
You ain't got a clue
She's the best you've ever had
The one who loves you
And if you fuck this thing up
You'll be the one that will lose
See...she's smarter than most
She's the TRUTH-but she don't boast
She ain't got to front
It's evident in her stunt
She's not some hoe
That you got from the club
She's the best thing since sliced bread
But you can't get that through your thick head
She ain't about the bling
Or the lame game 'dem other dudes sing
She don't need nothing from no one
She's got it all through God's love
And if you didn't know it till now
Then pay attention today
Any niggah could get any broad
But it takes a real man to be true and to do the right thang.
