Because I Love You-Lenny Williams

“Maybe you’ve never been in love like I’ve been in love.” -Lenny Williams

My good friend and the front lady over at the excellent blog seekthebestblog , Lady G, does a weekly Thursday post entitled My Jams (insert year) where she revisits hot and relevant R&B hits from years past. Each individual post is a specifically yearly experience that is an enriching  read led off by one of her personal stories that are awesome mini stories within  themselves. The woman can write!

Her “My Jams” editions also send me digging in the album crates  of yesteryear. Since I’ve been  rolling with “My Jams” I’ve rediscovered countless  old school tunes and relived some wonderful times. Thanks Gwin for your MJs.

Here is the latest “dusty” album in  the crate jewel I’ve come across.

Lenny Williams  and the ultimate “man baring his naked feelings ” song.

“Because I Love You”.

Fellas if this jam doesn’t stop her from hanging up on you  or get a response to your text, or get  her to open the door –  it’s over- it’s over bro.

Back in the day this song had folks  making up that had never broke up. Enjoy!

I’m the type of woman who will love you, but only when I’m ready. I’m not the type of woman who will sit around and jump at the first person who shows interest in me.

I’m not the type of woman to go out and look for love. I’m not the type of woman who will settle. I’m not the type of woman who fears being alone.I’m the type of woman who will love whole-heartedly when I meet the right person.

I’m the type of woman who will care for you, surprise you, treat you well and let you know how much you mean to me. I’m the kind of woman who always wants to love deeper. I want to learn your strengths and weaknesses. I want to know your favorite way to spend Sunday afternoons and what you like to do in thunderstorms. I want to know about your childhood and how your past shaped you into who you are today.

If you’re going “dayummm” where can I find this “heah” woman?” You probably already have but you’re so busy chasing cheap thirsty booty you’re stepping over and around her. Slow your roll stop engaging in “hoeism” and you might find out “your woman” is right under your nose.

As for the one that laid down the intro for this post – she’s over at Thought Catalog and she has a lot more to say. Get her here. –> This Is The Kind Of Woman I Promise To Be | Thought Catalog

A Note To Love 📃

Fellow blogger I Am Rey and all around pretty lady takes on the tough topic of “Love”. And she delivers answers and thought-provoking observations.

Awesome job Rey!

What does it truly mean to love? How does one truly convey this feeling? Is it something that we feel or learn? Many times in my life, I thought I knew what love was, but thinking back I can honest…
