When there were you, blues, was, is, a joyful, great,

poetic song and every day, was, is, good news,

When there were you:

When there were you, salsa reminds me,

of the mighty, magnificent, joyful you,

 laughing, dancing, swaying, here and there,

heads high, with the wise, majestic, poetic you,

When there were you:

When there were you, every music, seems to speak,

in your tongue, far and near, like the wind,

touches, and follow you and I,

When there were you:

When there were you—my beloved,

my spirit soars high, like the beautiful, great sky,

my heart dance freely, I felt brave, deep love,

there were no sad blues,

when there were only you and I—my love;

The universe, planet seems much more —, bright

There were less tears—there were many

victorious smiles; when there were only you!

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.
