by Kimberly Jones

She's not what I expected
What exactly did I need?

If she's not what I expected
How did I expect her to be?

More than what I suggested
I'm pleasantly surprised

She's not what I expected
Straight forward, no disguise

She's not what I expected
Like a novel I can't pause

She's not what I expected
Every day I rise to fall

In her palm my heart has rested
Stranger to this feeling before

God rejected what I requested
Clearly, I deserved more

Convinced my dreams were in vain
Slim chance she'd come true

My patience is no longer tested
I've been shown love's proof

I had lost in the game of love
Following the wrong directions

Rescued by the glare in her eyes
I gaze into love's reflection

Never suspected
I'd be selected

Held and protected
Honored and respected

Our lives, now redirected

Genuinely accepted
Eternally connected

To Frankie
A.K.A My Heart

Mrs. Unexpected
