Poem: Remember Me

You said, ‘Remember me!’

As I dance away in my dreams,

My heart smiled each time

I see your light, beaming on my skin;

In the many galaxy of stars, hidden in space,

I felt your love growing:

Even on our mystical journey—to know you;

You held my attention and my heart,

Was never the same:

As I yearned your presence—our reunion,

With my hands to my lips, I send you a kiss,

Blew to the sky pass the moonlight,

To a place I have never seen; a place they call heaven,

Whispering, ‘My love, beloved heart, ‘remember me too

As I wish to be with you In Zion!

About the author


I am a proud mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, a singer, great cook, a lover of unique fashionable earrings, and love to wear & dress in a unique artistic fashion.
I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege working for the Human Resource Admin, taught at an Head-Start and move on as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. My career ended because of an overwhelming challenge of self-worth and depression I was facing; that took a long time to over come. However, the support of love ones and guidance of God, I was able to rise again and excel. I was able to connect more with my children and grand children to fulfill my destiny. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz, before she passed on, and other great leaders. I know all could not occur without the support of love ones and most of all the God of breath. I am growing everyday as I hope that I will be successful on developing a higher Christ consciousness of my mind. The work is hard however through the love of Christ I am embracing the love of self, honoring myself more and developing my character. I won't give up on myself. I consider myself a wildflower that love to bring joy to others. I am also working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts. Peace and Blessings!
