    I Need To Know

    I need to know I am loved far beyond the first cup of coffee
    in the morning and my favorite meal. I need to have eyes
    looking at me like it was the first time while cascading
    over me as if I was the only one left on earth.

    Words to tell me I am the best to show I have been
    chosen from all the rest. I need caresses, flowers love notes
    lips to lips and arms locked into mine.

    I can be strong only in my capacity to endure pain, in my
    determination not to be overwhelmed by trials that appear
    without my permission and then endure without reason.

    I can be strong in confronting my fears that match each
    phase of my life I am not looking back on the past with
    guilt or regrets, in my unrelenting reassurance that all
    my dreams will be realized.. I can be strong when it’s
    essential to someone that I live and unthinkable that I die
    unbearable that I cease to exist.


    I need to know a love that goes all out without any
    stipulation or desertion a love of total trust and
    communication. A love that will last until I take my
    last breath and gaze my last gaze at you. Then I am
    finally glad that I have lived because I know how
    much I have been loved…

    yes, i like this poem too, it is also a good expression of the heart of a black woman...however, I agree w/LP, but was afraid to say it...don't want to offend anyone.

    YES!!! So beatifully written. And it really hit home, being the blessed person that I am I have the described love. Your poem
    just inspired me to thank God, all over again, which is proably the
    third or fourth time today! Thank you for that one!
