A Daughter’s Heart Speak

I look around and I saw
The chair and I remember
Your laughter and the meal
Place before you; I heard
You say these precious words,
“I love you and the kiss
That I use to brush away!”
I look around and I saw
The sofa you and I shared
Memories of watching our
Sermon together and I placing
My leg on your lap
I look around and everything
That I saw although they were
Beautiful gifts felt meaningless
For the most precious gift—you
mama weren’t there anymore.
I look around and say I love you’
Mama so much.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
