Your Song in my head

I heard you sang so sweet, gentle,
Professing your love to her, to him
And it sounded so sweet in your
Foreign tongue words that I wish I
Could understand
Words I wish to understood
Yet it sound so sweet, so romantic

I heard you sang so beautifully and I
Saw no color between you and I,
Just for today I thought about
how special you are, how special I am
With your beautiful voice,
words I cannot understand,
Words I wish to understood
And I thank you for carrying my heart
To your world for a moment, a day
and all I could think about is your
songs that take me away
As you sang so gentle in your foreign tongue
Words that I cannot even understand
Words I wish to understood

As you profess your love to her, to him,
I heard you sang so sweet, so gentle,
I heard you sang and sang and I began
to hum, smile, dance away with you
in my head, words I cannot even understand
words I wish to understood, just your song
only in my head.

About the author


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
