love in retrospect

hopped in the car

On a night

with no stars

Riding shot gun

Yes, me and you

Everything is closed

we gon find something to do

Look at you

I love the way

We just bust ass

in that game of uno

They all thought that we were in kahoots

Cause they knew that you were my boo boo

We stay outside

Mosquitos all in the area

But we fear no malaria

This love it will carry us

To the next seven eleven

Sippin slurpees

Brain freeze

Know your favorite is cherry but

Let me introduce you

To French kisses and hickeys

I remember the first time I met you I was scared of ya

We met on a summer day

But that look you gave me was so cold

Felt like I knew you from a different life time

Your soul was so old

The night me and your mama met

Gambino smoothly playing through the radio

I looked at you

You looked at me

I’m thinking I wanna marry ya

Cause they say ain’t nothing new under the sun

But you, you took me to the moon

And I knew you were the one

Feels good to be here

Windows fogging up

This conversation keeps weaving in and out of topics like how we were raised

To the places I wanna Rome wit ya

Seat belts won’t save us

From the cascading fate of me building a home in ya

You became my family

In that moment

You increased my stamina

Can’t imagine my life without you

The tribe yelling “can I kick it?” in the back ground

And I just remembered this playlist you made for us

The stars are out now

Through your eyes I see them glaring up

We been outside 6 hours now

Tank close to e

But I have no where to be

But to be here wit ya

Don’t ever leave me

And no matter where you go I’ll still be wit ya

Remember the night that started with no stars

Chillin in the car

With your past, present and future love

You are one of the great ones

And for me you are enough
