Poem: There was a Time

I believe that God was in the sky,

And that mankind was oh so very nice:

There was a time I wish the tears,

That sprinkle down my eyes,

Was not wasted over foolish things,

But for a love one that was so wise:

There was a time I believe my love,

Was so great that it would bring smiles,

And hope to those who were sad, weary,

And refuse to be kind:

Now I know now, it takes a greater, purer,

Compassionate, soul to bring, peace, hope,

Joy, life and love in every heart, eyes,

Yes,—in every smile!

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.
