Each day

Each day I receive grace, blessings, prayer
Each day I receive kindness, gifts—I get a meal
A roof over my head, shower—time to reflect
I get to look at my mom and dad picture
Who has moved on
I get to speak to a sister and a brother
Who may or may not know me
Even in their or my impatience
Each day I get to hear my grands.
Each day I get to write, sing,
Pray, text a message of
Good morning, good night to a few
Each day I am bless with a friend that
May remember to call, visit, that came
And leave
Each day when I feel life seems grey,
Dull, long—his love reminds me
I am in heaven. I am very blessed,
So, I am blessing you readers with
This poetic gift each day, I pray you
Receive—thank you!

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.
