There is no pleasure in loss:

As I weep—I miss you,

The way you stood by me;

In my flaws—you loved me,

Truthfully I don’t deserve your love

Sometimes I get scared;

In your absence,

void now befriends me;

Some smile, and wish you goodbye:

as if, it was, a Victory,

To loose love that I could not see,

Right next to me: Until rain flows,

Gently and allows me to see,

that grace has shown me mercy!

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 higher God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness and love in me. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. Peace and Blessings!
