Poem: I Am in a Good Place

When I dance, to a lover’s rock tune
I feel romance in my heart
Dreaming of rich love, ‘That is you!’
Holding hands, makes me
Smile, feel alive—not the blues:
When I dance, to the lover’s rock
Songs—tune: I feel I can do
Almost anything—only with you:
When I dance and dance
And dance, I feel I am getting
Nearer, closer, to your heart
And higher than the moon:
When I dance, I know, for sure,
I am loved, in a good place,
Laughing, smiling, feeling alive,

When I am with 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.
