I prayed for you and suddenly you appeared,
Like a thief in the night, so powerfully feared,
You told me your dreams and the things you'd do
And I promised you in return that I'd see you through.
Because of you I can see another side,
Of life's wonderful treasures and embrace the ride,
That you've given my life so exciting and true,
In return for that experience, I'll see you through.
Like a shelter in the time of a raging storm,
I'll lend to you my loving arms.
And any obstacle that befalls you
With my undying love I'll see you through.
When you've done your best to provide for me
And the world tells you're not good enough and you start to believe…
I will show you how much respect I have for you,
My beautiful black man, I'll see you through.
When your boss passes you by from that big promotion,
I'll shower you with much love and devotion,
And plant back in your soul the will to MOVE,
With total understanding, I'll see you through.
When there is no explanation for being denied,
Your hearts desire and they've stripped away your pride,
I will sew it back together and make it all new,
I will be the tailor you need to see you through.
If you find one day that it's hard to believe,
That I'm the woman who has what you need,
Remember this my love, my heart belongs only to you
My determination and love will see you through.
