For my brother’s wedding

Time I tried to live
Live without my rib
Sitting at the crib feelin kinda glib
Me without my make up
The time that I could take up
Not to many more days I feel that I could wake up
Bruises on my side
Let go of my pride
Found my one and only
Down for me to ride

Now I’m thanking the provider
Feel like a survivor
Making up the measure
More than my pleasure
I start a new ledger no marks on my etcher
I can do without the lecture just show my appreciation
Before the congregation I take the legislation
And give her my admiration

It could hour it could take a day
I’m waking from a dream
To have my breath taken away
I don’t know how else to say it
Bone of my bone I feel so refreshed
Underneath these insights flesh of my flesh
Born for the day of distress i only wish happiness
And if you never get me at all
You will always get my best
