Poem: Love Open Our Eyes

Sitting in my own thoughts

Loneliness brings hope

And the thought of being close

— next to you,

I dream your cuddling arms

Wrapped around my waist

Like a gentle, kind, crystal rain:

Sitting in my own thoughts

I feel alive hearing your songs

“A garden in the pure rain,”

And I imagine the song, melody

taking us higher,

In the arms of a lovely, peaceful

And joyous heart, joyous home, 

— joyous day

With love one’s hearts fill

With gratitude, brighten

Like a genuine touch of gold:

Sit in my own thoughts

Thinking of you, I know that love

Has open our eyes each day,

Like a beautiful sunny ray

And a quiet, clear crystal morning,

Afternoon and evening 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.
