And if you got one, love one You're lucky just to have just one One mother, one sister, one daughter, one wife Once lost in the darkness, blessed by sunlight Once blind to the bounties of livin'? Lord, surround Me with four women To symbolize life, I'm born twice For forty days and nights weathered the storm's tug My mother's fear of the water taught me how to swim Above I fought waves as she prayed and never gave up Her faith saved me, and I just wanna say "thank you for Your love" My memories of childhood are like dreams I'm a drifter ? thinkin' of my sister's like scenes Of a movie; me screamin' "you're not my mom," set to Swing You holdin' me yellin' to me "I'm the next best thing" Six years of separation's damn near a generation But you never stopped trying to understand my Motivation And you always had my back when push came to shove We're the same blood, through the rain's floods ? "thank you for your love" I've said it before, I'll say it to my death I will never fully comprehend just why God left you In my hands, when I could hardly stand, I guess It was significant that you and I would take our first Steps In stride ? me as a follower, you as a guide Revealer of the way as you explain I play the scribe Leader of the tribe ? reason that Abeo came alive My name, my pride, I take time to "thank you for your Love" Who would have ever thought we'd come this far? Two renegades who finally made their way to the stars Built a bridge over the river of doubt and made "sound" The foundation on which we would build this house And aint that what matrimony's about; a shared vision? We draw on the strengths of intellect and intuition You're the symbolism of liberated women, the definition Of What a companion does ? "thank you for your love" Thank you all for your support in my times of need Your belief in me empowers me to lead And they wonder how I stand this firm to transgressions Y'all taught to me the lessons every man must learn Mother showed me how to fold my hands and thank God Through my sister's eyes ? compromise was not hard My daughter teaches me honesty and honestly My wife teaches love for my mother, now my cipher's Complete (That's one love...) One mother, one sister, one daughter, one wife Once lost in the darkness; blessed by sunlight Once blind to the bounties of livin' ? Lord, surround Me with four women To symbolize life; I'm born twice And lucky enough to have known a love like this My dedication ? the inspiration to write this We're consolidatin' the family ties ? we're drawn tight Knowin' things are gonna be alright...
