 From the Heart Through the Pen

We're a lot of work 
But she's also a lot of worth 
It's the reason I put her first
My mind has hired a bricklayer
My heart's over there tampering with the papers
Anything for a delay
While he and my soul ready for the battle
They've long prepared for
Fast forward a few
Mind and body in flight mode
Cause my heart began catching a beatdown in fight mode
Tattered and torn
Never stood a chance 
Cause all this came without a chance to be foretold
Confusing huh
Cause there was never an intent to harm
It's beginning to get warm yet so cold
Where oh where was my soul 
...over there pleading with its mate
Trying to reconvince her about fate
I always get asked where "home" is 
I never could answer 
Until now...until her
Home is wherever she is
They asked why
My heart replied...forever, she is
Body and mind stopped in their tracks
My heart continued...she's our how, when, what, who and where
Most importantly our why 
Now they all understood 
They all have to work together 
Not by sight but faith 
It's the reason 37 years proved not to be
Too long of a wait
No matter the weight they bear
They now have the answer 
It's the reason I still choose her
Despite the fears
