    She came to Jamaica
    To forget

    The man who refused
    Her love

    But underneath the sea waves
    And between the leaves
    Of a Coconut Tree's sway
    She could still hear
    The alluring echoes of his voice

    When the Ginger Lillies bloomed yesterday
    She daydreamed about their
    May/December love days
    And the wet-ness of his kiss

    No matter how blue
    The blue
    Of Jamaican skies
    It could never compete
    With his soft brown eyes
    That first night
    When they made love

    The sweetest mango's nectar
    Would never be sweet enough
    To ripen the loss of his fruit.....

    Juice...

    Escaped from the corners of his lips

    With that last kiss...

    And

    Caribbean Seas
    Could not carry her far enough

    To forget

    How he drowned her

    With his

    Smooth

    Liquid

    Touch...

    a pouring out of the heart...

    that far is never far enuff to forget

    here

    have a li'l bit of my peace.:)
    {resting under the large palm tree}
    next to the sandy seas
    where
    serenity
    and
    hope
    and
    GOD's garden
    be.

    wallow in the memory of him
    when you return from heaven
    you can handle yours

    i know you will.:)

    One.
