Pull out the date night red lipstick, I have a hot date. It is the kind of date where I first drop the baby off at MiMi’s house. The kind of date where we already have a baby, and the baby is eight.
I try my best to rush to meet him at home, but there is traffic. So, I sip my afternoon coffee. I’ll need one to stay up past “school night bedtime.” I flip through the radio station, but I can’t find the LOVE songs!
I hear songs about meeting for the first time, plenty rockin’ one night stands, and a having sex to say goodbye song (are we for real?!) I’m a girl, a sappy girl headed on a date with my man, where are the love songs?
I want to hear a song about someone that has known each other more than a first hot glance, hey, what about someone that is…let’s say it, already married? I want to hear about love, real love, love that has made it through the hard times, love that actually knows their date’s middle name and has met their momma.
Surely we are not the only ones that have gone on more than a first date. Surely there could be a love song about more than a one night stand on the radio.
Coming from someone that has been married for thirteen years, and plans to make it a whole lot more, LOVE IS MUCH MORE ROMANTIC THAN LUST!
The honeymoon isn’t over after having a baby. It grows.
Love doesn’t leave. It stays. Love forgives.
Love is like wine. It gets better with age.
Real gentlemen do still exist and true love can be found.
Singers, sing a song about my man working hard for a living for his family.
Writers, write about that sexy man rocking his baby to sleep in the middle of the night. The man that loves that baby’s Momma, even when she has no makup on. And would chose her any day over the newer model.
I wanna hear the song about:
Even now, I still chose you. Even that, can’t make me leave. Even he, has nothing to offer over you. ‘Cause you’re my man. Always have been, even before I met you. Always will be. ‘Cause God himself made us for each other. No one else shares these memories. No one else has been with me through that. No one else could ever be her Daddy. So, you may have seen these heels before and maybe this restaurant isn’t new. And we might have a hard week behind us.
But you are my man, and tonight you are my date. And tomorrow, you will still be my man. And we are living a real love song.
