    you be that…
    cherryblueblakstrawberry
    aphrodisiac that effortlessly
    brings my soul alive &
    resuscitates my heart’s desire
    to write you love poems
    …or sing you love songs
    or just to be loved by you…
    …& if i had my way
    i would make your birthday
    a national holiday…
    ‘cause i just want to celebrate
    the moment that you
    took your first breath…
    or made your first sound…
    or first made someone happy
    (i know your folks had to be
    overjoyed at your arrival)

    brotha… you be that…
    sweet-cream in my coffee
    or at least… the concoction
    that makes me cream-sweetly
    & it seems that i never knew
    love until you came along…
    now i’m absolutely turned out
    …or completely strung out
    or entirely spaced out…
    (you make the call)
    i mean… just the other day…
    you touched me or kissed me
    or maybe you just breathed
    …but… you sent me…
    floating past cloud 9 & hanging
    from 9 was an OutOfBusiness
    sign that said…
    lovers should contact you…
    …to learn how to get lifted
    (you be bad like that)

    so… keeping in mind that this
    ain’t no line… or no play
    or no game designed to gas you up…
    (no matter how it sounds)
    i want you to be—
    my three-sixty-five valentine…
    or my for all time… or even my
    ‘til the end of time… ‘cause i’m
    entirely convinced when i say
    this ****…
    my love will never do without you.
