…………………………………I am happy to see!

That is one month, celebrates you—celebrates me;

and that God have not deserted me!

It’s the month of awareness, mother’s day

—birthdays, Cinco de Mayo, that some have,

overcome sufferings and Victory!

the moon glow magnificently: even grandeur

upon you and me; the month of May I am,

proud to always see,

its’ a time of gifts—my heart fills with glee:

Blessings, emeralds, lotus flowers and fertility!

Let me know I am alive—the Lord Lives in me;

Even for an hour or two: we’ll chat carefree,

about the island, Jamaica, Bahamas, Barbados,

Hawaii, Trinidad, maybe the Mediterranean Sea;

“Month of May come very soon:  oh so happily!”

it’s the season of spring & one more number,

added to my age:  shows a new beginning;

—rebirth, how much I have achieved!

the honor of your presence, tells me,

my friends, family, have not, forsaken me!

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.
