When I Saw You

When I saw you
All felt new
Like our eyes
First met
And my heart
When I saw you
I stood still
Your presence
As you speak
When I saw you
I remember
Your gentle touch
Your laughter
When I saw you
All was forgiven
And I knew
it was love that
gave me hope
When I saw you.

About the author


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 as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for several great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme God, he is using giants and various people to help develop the divinity within and allowed me to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
