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


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.
