Poem: Our Love is True

“There goes my heart again!” Like music play on and on

with you it seems, there’s no end: Embracing the greatness of you

Place into your hands–see you as my magnificent friend:

Treat my heart with care—compassion, like a gentle

Bloom petal, that grow and grow wishing for winter to end:

Hoping you’ll be wise, kind like precious,

Romantic notes—letters, seal with a kiss

forever love send: There goes my heart again,

Like sweet grape wine and rare perfume,

Fill with pure respect, joyful notes send:

I am inspired by you: I will dance and dance,

Sing your great songs to my heart,

“Don’t you know, our love is perfect,

Like a beautiful gem?”

I hope you see, greatness in me too

Like a revolutionary song, tasteful, graceful,

Upful and bright, if your love is kind, “I wish to say,

Thank you, to your poetic, freedom dance,

Precious romance that you extend!”

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.
