Poem:  A Forgotten Note

I wait for you to write me every day:

A poetic word — song that elevate the soul,

Revealing precious truth, that brings, the mind,

Higher to its’ greatness of honorable love,

And grace, come my way: Your letter

Never reached my heart, I want to say,

Since you went away: I hear love songs,

That cool the fire, my heart that blazed;

For your infinite, love — only, to take me higher,

The smile, that touches my face, was the joy,

You brought, out, from within & in every place:

Now becomes a forgotten, a sentimental, note,

Mail, from the mystical man, that took my heart,

To another place: Winter seems harsh, long,

As I wait and wait; for your letter, that never,

Reach my eyes — my heart, even to this day,

The note that tells me, my presence, inspires you,

To become, greater and change, your ways,

To someone magnificent, every day:

I wait and wait, but it seems, life, someone,

Or something inspired you to stray, from my heart,

I say; as I hope pure love, find our heart each day!

About the author


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
