Poem: Let My Heart Meet Him

I was told we are only here, on earth for a time

Spring, summer, autumn, winter,

Rain, snow, hail — sunshine:

Come and go — pass us by: Some dance, shout,

Laugh, sing and cry for their friends,

Love ones that are no longer alive:

Some do not wish to say farewell, nor goodbye;

As their love one, transition to a place, hopefully kind:

I was told we are only here for a time

For some it’s a feeling of peace, balance,

Tranquility, complete joy to know,

Their love ones, receive the grand prize:

To see the face, the presence of their majestic King

Who laid down his precious life for us to begin:

A higher spiritual consciousness in flight

For those he loves and let their heart smile

For me, I hope I will be one of those

Who wear a crown and say “thank you infinite divine!’

I hope I will meet you and get there in time.

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.
