And if you got one, love one...
You're lucky just to have just one...

One mother, one sister, one daughter, one wife
Once lost in the darkness; blessed by sunlight
Once blind to the bounties of livin' – Lord, surround
Me with four women
To symbolize life; I'm born twice
For forty days and nights weathered the storm's tug
My mother's fear of the water taught me how to swim
Above
I fought waves as she prayed and never gave up
Her faith saved me, and I just wanna say "thank you for
Your love... "

My memories of childhood are like dreams
I'm a drifter – thinkin' of my sister's like scenes
Of a movie; me screamin' "you're not my mom," set to
Swing
You holdin' me yellin' to me "I'm the next best thing"
Six years of separation's damn near a generation
But you never stopped trying to understand my
Motivation
And you always had my back when push came to shove
We're the same blood, through the rain's floods –
"thank you for your love"

I've said it before, I'll say it to my death
I will never fully comprehend just why God left you
In my hands, when I could hardly stand, I guess
It was significant that you and I would take our first
Steps
In stride – me as a follower, you as a guide
Revealer of the way as you explain I play the scribe
Leader of the tribe – reason that Abeo came alive
My name, my pride, I take time to "thank you for your
Love"

Who would have ever thought we'd come this far?
Two renegades who finally made their way to the stars
Built a bridge over the river of doubt and made "sound"
The foundation on which we would build this house
And aint that what matrimony's about; a shared vision?
We draw on the strengths of intellect and intuition
You're the symbolism of liberated women, the definition
Of
What a companion does – "thank you for your love"

Thank you all for your support in my times of need
Your belief in me empowers me to lead
And they wonder how I stand this firm to transgressions
Y'all taught to me the lessons every man must learn
Mother showed me how to fold my hands and thank God
Through my sister's eyes – compromise was not hard
My daughter teaches me honesty and honestly
My wife teaches love for my mother, now my cipher's
Complete
(That's one love...)

One mother, one sister, one daughter, one wife
Once lost in the darkness; blessed by sunlight
Once blind to the bounties of livin' – Lord, surround
Me with four women
To symbolize life; I'm born twice
And lucky enough to have known a love like this
My dedication – the inspiration to write this
We're consolidatin' the family ties – we're drawn tight
Knowin' things are gonna be alright...
