Don’t Fall Back

May The Good outweigh the Bad
May Every smile and laughter and lovely times
Outweigh when you sad or Mad
I’m looking for my future to be with us
So please don’t Fall back
Baby don’t even lean back
See I can’t even risk that
Because losing my peace
Is a set back!
Let me bring that back
I said losing my Joy
No I can’t have that
Why would I interfere with what God had Giving me
I can’t even make sense about that
I said losing my Woman with the anointed hands
Will only bring me heartache and pain in my back
Cause see you take that weight off me
How you keep me calm.
You put that body on me that keeps me warm
You the woman who picks up my slack
So please
Don’t fall back

    Love your ideas of not falling back, just needs a little of polished at the ends would flow much better. Keep it up!

    Holey moley, a bit of grammar might help. Nice that your gratitude is showing, but polished it is certainly not.
