    I would love to
    Be your children’s father
    To sit at the head of your forefather’s table
    And carve honey baked (moments)
    And smoked (laughter)
    And serve surreptitious
    Listenings
    With after dinner jazz

    I would love to walk beside you
    In the coolness of morning’s breeze
    Along the beach that forever claimed
    And hear the whispers of long ago
    And laugh and play
    And say all the things my heart tells me to say

    But I can’t.

    All I can do is wish
    From afar
    And know that you are
    The sunshine that ignites my smile
    And brightens my everyday
    Even as May
    Gave way to June
    And your pleasurable offerings
    Makes me swoon

    I wish I could

    Love you.

    GLAD YOU LIKED IT. BUT WHERE WOULD I GO FROM HERE...EXCEPT...

    Will you allow me into your space
    …Grace me with the flutter of your heart
    as your “smile”
    jumpstart my “everyday”

    “I love you.”

    Will you let me help you
    To raise your son
    Teach him how to be a man
    A Black Man
    In this land we live in

    Will you honor me with your presence
    Allow your essence to wash over me
    In effervescent happy fashion

    Come on…
    Laff with me :)

    As the yellow brick road
    Takes us on ANOTHER WORLD tour
    And my toes curl
    At the thought of you

    Will you......??????:)
