Hey…So I’ve been through the blender emotionally over the last 21 months and I realise a side of me has been numbed by my experiences.
There’s now a cynic where the romantic used to reside, but you know you can’t keep a good man down (pun intended, you dumpster-minded humans LOL! )
SO! This is basically a post-dated message to the Woman God has set aside for me.
I won’t sweat it, I won’t bother to force it.
Heaven knows I don’t have the time anyway.
Imma just do me, focus on my career and be good to my mom while He sorts that out. Anyway, here goes. This one is for You…
Words will never do ‘Us’ justice
But I’m willing to do the best I can
I don’t have a lot to work with, but what’s left of my heart has something to say…
I feel like you’re crazy for loving me and I’m out of my mind for letting you risk being here
But with you, even when I lose I’m winning
Who cares what the final score is,
I’ve already got the trophy mounted in your heart
You’re the reason I give my everything, all of me
I look at you and I don’t regret our humble beginning
You are the mischievous glint in my eye, the chuckle in my heart
What would I do without your smile egging me on
Telling me often that God isn’t with me done
Pulling me into your hug, pushing me to chase my dreams
Keeping me full of hope, bursting at the seams
You’re my muse, my sounding board, my choice of affectionate affliction
You’re perfect for my imperfections, the glue for the broken me
Imagine where I was, or where I could have been
Take my hand, let me show you what I’m building for us from the rubble you found me
You say you already are proud of me,
But Darling, save a little pride for when I’m done getting back to being the real Onimisi
I can’t wait to be whole enough for you.
But I’ll take my time, work with God, build you a worthy Boo…
