    Drive By

    I remember it was a cold
    snowy Philadelphia day when
    he passed my way

    his Jag silver and glittering
    like his eyes he was so fine
    I wasn’t surprised

    His soul was electric body
    Was swaying as his Timberlands
    Was side stepping in my direction

    Every inch of his body I
    Respected in everyway our
    Lips parted and a smiled
    Escaped

    He got in his car as I continued
    To flow while my heart begin to
    glow

    I had to grab my soul stand
    Firm breathe and take control
    Felt like sunshine with a
    California breeze

    I knew I had to be cool get my
    Composure brotha had me weak
    At the knees

    Dark rich chocolate a black
    Sweet berry full of pride
    And cultured esteem



    At that moment eternity was mine
    I was ready with open arms to
    receive it each time I pass that
    street my mind retrieves it

    you see quietly meditating trying
    to maintain my mental stability as
    I inhale the breaths of life he
    Gave me that winter day

    And even though it was just a passing
    Glance he made my heart dance to
    Destiny’s beat

    Traveling the road before me was
    A scent a sweet melody a subtle
    Hint that we will meet again one day

    The whole was a delight to read; but THIS part struck me to my core just as his glance did you! :toast: Wonderfully written, Poet!



    And :birthday:


    I hope you'll "pass" this way again soon.
