Oh my darling, tell me; if I held back some of my love, would others call me stingy, with love? If I ripped off my shirt, threw it to the ground; would you believe I did that, after looking at the price tag? I know that real love, isn’t about the price tag; that just cheapens the experience. I was just demonstrating, that I’m absolutely willing; to give you the very shirt off my back. But if I took it back up, put it back on; because I thought it would be, a good… bye, bye. This love is not a song and dance, it’s not even about being NSYNC. A good bye, is a goodbye; if the love is half off, the agreed upon amount of love!
So let’s go for a walk, but not in the park; there’s this one angry bird. The bird saw me throw down the shirt, now every time I walk through; all I keep hearing is, cheap, cheap. Let’s hold hands, gaze into each other’s eyes; forgo the talking points. Talk is cheap; if not ultimately followed up, with substantive actions. That’s the time to put up, because my heart will never shut up. Over the years my love has seemed a bit frugal, but I never ever wanted you to believe; that I thought your heart was ever cheap. Let me raise my hand, I want to ask my heart a question; are you ready to put your money where your mouth is? To show that this love, has never been a cheap thrill.
People see me as being picky, the love within is a sticky situation. I’m stuck on you; crazy, will forever be the glue. So, say what you will, just don’t ever get it twisted; the love within my heart, has never been anything less than genuine. Loving me is not easy, but I will never give cheap love; the cost, my everything. Your love and God’s love, is what makes my heart rich, and truly profitable. The world offers a cheap substitute, and still wants to call it; “love!” I would do you, and everyone a true disservice; if the love was so cheap, that you could never feel it deep within your bones!
So my sweet darling, if I showed you a hundred dollar bill; then told you that I can’t give it to you. Would you call me a prankster, a cheapskate; or maybe just El Cheapo? That wouldn’t be my hearts reality, tell me; how can you truly measure, A Woman’s Worth? I could give ten thousand reasons; why your love is truly one in a million. When I have that kind of money, darling, it’s all yours; all I need, is just your love. The blessings are running me down, poised to overtake me. I will never give cheap love, to anyone in need. When love is a true richness, for every heart to behold. True love, is worth more; then all the riches in the world!
So, let me state for the record, by saying this; “El Cheapo,” is Spanish. So in the future darling, I would prefer to be called; Mr. F.R.U.G.A.L instead, short for; “Fun, Resourceful, Unique, Gracious, Assertive and Loving!” The worth, of a true Renaissance man!
I’ve always tried my very best to anticipate, to watch my step; guard my heart. Sometimes, we can find ourselves at a crossroad; the proverbial fork in the road. This world has so many ups and downs, choices; when you find yourself lost, look up. Some people might think that’s not a viable direction, but that would be the best decision. They can even make you feel like you’re crazy, you’re not. Crazy is a state of mind. Making a decision, without the heart being part of the deciding factor; insanity becomes the state!
As for me and my heart, No one will ever be able to stick a fork; done, would mean I no longer walk the earth. Tenderness, will forever be the feeling; that differentiates a hardened heart, from a gentle soul. How can anyone see if love permeates within; if you’re never willing to show the tender side? Don’t get me wrong, we all have a side; that at times can be a bit distasteful. You may have been burnt one, too many times; don’t let those dark moments, define your heart!
So therefore, let the true undeniable presence abide; love. It doesn’t matter how hardened you‘ve become, your heart cannot deny the truth; the love within. When you have truly come to the realization, that within the heart; love is the deep seeded desire. Being tender, will then never be a crossroad; but the path, you’ve forever chosen to take. Even when your heart gets completely full; don’t let the love, stop feeding your soul. Whenever your soul feels overwhelmed, just take a deep breath; then let your heart, take in every bit of that Amazing love. Real love needs to be savored, not just consumed. Even though the love, is truly poised; to consume your heart, from within!
My friends, chew on this; the true meat of any good relationship, are the truly tender moments; your heart gets to enjoy. That’s right, take the time to enjoy every bit of those moments; especially, when it’s a truly tasty love. Go ahead, get your fill, just remember; it’s not about stuffing your heart, but filling each others soul; try a little tenderness. And if you again get to another fork, keep the love moving forward; the fork is never the end of the road. The love you will crave today, will still make you hungry; for more of the same tomorrow. Don’t stop thirsting, don’t ever stop feasting; don’t let the love within your heart go hungry. Because from the very beginning, you didn’t already make up within your heart; which fork you would forever choose?
Why should I ever have to worry about being lost? Whenever I looked up, there’s always a sign; it comes from up above. This is not about having a clear eye, but an open heart; to truly see everything, within the right perspective. The sign spoke to me with such a clear and powerful message, it simply said; ”right turn only!” The words were clear as day, so what’s a man to do. Following your heart is a good thing, but even a foolish heart; can still make all the wrong decisions. Follow your heart, but first learn how to be led; by more than just what feels good!
