My baby lullaby gentle and kind:

Thank the magnificent one — you are alive:

Let joy and hope, bring you each day a smile:

With your big bold, gorgeous, bright eyes,

There’s peace and blessings, 

In your heart and mind:

Just know when it rains,

There will be great seasons,

Cold, weather, there will be sunshine:

Stay strong, in the highs and lows,

Even when it seems, 

Life’s unsure as you grow,

We will be right there, 

As you push forward beyond the miles:

In your heart, remember love,

Brought you here, so be kind:

When your mom and dad’s presence, 

Seems far, distant, 

Invisible beyond the eyes,

And life feels, so unkind,

Sing, sing, dance and smile: 

Oh, courageous one,

You are the songs, 

The melody — our heartbeat,

Poetic romance, that brings joy,

And magnificent love — sunshine!

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.
