What I Thought I Wanted?

 

What I wanted I truly thought it was you.

Someone who loves to be with me,

Someone who’s love was strong and true.

What I wanted was becoming a reality

You said you never wanted to leave me alone

What I wanted was love, and to see it grow,

Having a home with love, while calling it our own.

 

What I wanted was to be number one or even the fifth in your life.

What I wanted was the person I love, to become my wife.

Someone to take the time, to understand how loving I am.

Someone that knew when it comes to being a man, “that I am.”

Know that there’s nothing I am materialistic attached.

Someone that knows when disputing not attacked

 

What I wanted I saw in you.

Sadden by the clock of time it became untrue.

So many things I heard that came from your voice

That made me believe the person I wanted was you,

But when time passed on by

I realize, what I wanted was not you.

 

What I wanted was an image, an image you made.

Of a woman that you were not.

I think it’s called being played.

Funny how people paint a picture of life.

Then it’s up to you to see the colors of truth and lies.

Not an easy task, and at times impossible too.

I thank god to this day

That what I truly wanted I realized it was not you.
