As I Bid You Goodbye

You ask to stay and help me live
Again even if the memory of your
Presence haunts me over and over
Again, you want to stay and help me
Rise out of the depths ocean
Of our love that seems too much
Seems unkind for me to rise
As the memory of our love now
Haunts me over and over again
You want to stay as you say you love
Me again and again even if the memory
Of our love felt short, felt unkind,
Fill with joy and pain, you want to
Help me rise out of the blues
That seems too much, seems unkind
For me to rise and I look at you,
Kiss you,pause, smile, with tears
In my eyes, as I bid you farewell,
As I bid you goodbye.

About the author


I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme using giants and various people to help develop within and allowed the God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
