When I fall in love again,

You will be mighty my beloved;

And we will part the red sea,

like Moses with his great rod;

and close the mouth like Daniel of the fierce lion

And the wind, the wind will sweep,

our bodies like the twins—Jacob and Esau:

the grandson of Abraham.

When I fall in love again,

I would wish our dance were beautifully played;

like symphony # 1.

When I fall in love again,

you and I would hold hands;

as we walk upon the cloud hidden by

the place call Heaven.

When I fall in love again,

this time my beloved, we will wear,

glorious crowns and place them at His Majesty feet;

rich with the rarest diamonds:

When I fall in love, when I fall in love

I will choose you only 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!
