When I needed U most

When I needed U most

By Deremiah *CPE (Mentor/Columnist)

By the way,
you were there
now I know you care
because you proved it
could have smooved it over
when you pressed it out
There's no doubt
I got reasons to parade about
I'm in your marching band
tell your friends I'm your worlds greatest fan
came alive when I needed your support
could have focused on another report
but you helped me sort
through all the hay in the stack
put the needle in the pack
put jack back in his crown
there's nothing more precious
than a great woman who helps a man
when he's down.
Well I don't mean to make you blush
I don't mean to brag & boast
but you were there
when I needed you most.

Yearned for you,
While phone lines burned for you
No one to call but you.
& you proved yourself "True Blue" like the flu… boo
I'm hooked on you, it's contagious too.
I know you think I've lost it, tossed it
Put it in my bowl and sauced it
should have flipped it could have flossed it
must be something in the water I drank
came out-cho-faucet.
but I'm listening to you make a lot of sense
girl you got in-tell-I-Gence
To listen to you all night would be my delight
here's my callin' card all-right
cuz you got something others
never seem to get right
it's classy, it's sweet and sassy.
Well I don't mean to make you blush
I don't mean to brag & boast
but you were there
when I needed you most.

Many get it all wrong
but your words sing like a song
to make it easy to remember
It's like forgetting fall in September
what you feel is so right,
it was thick as night, reality way out-of-sight
but you spoke into me light
You could have stepped off, crept off
and got side tracked but I heard
you say "baby don't worry I got yo back".
Be there when you need me
words like food can feed me.
I was growin' hungry, trapped in starvation,
deep tribulation, mental migration, trepidation faint preoccupation
thoughts caught in jet streams, it seems
you make dreams on paper reams screams
come alive like a full court press
helped me get my thoughts off my chest,
my lovely editor, how can I credit her
I guess I'll just have to say…
Well I don't mean to make you blush
I don't mean to brag & boast
but you were there
when I needed you most.
