    for bruce edwards, my husband

    his lips
    sweeter than the taste of honeysuckle
    on a moist summer night in alabama

    his eyes
    great amber orbs, filled with me
    when i see inside his soul....

    his hands
    smooth and strong, with the gift
    of agile fingers...to caress and soothe...

    his nose
    prominent, proud, a beautiful
    signature of his African self, a wonder to
    behold when his nostrils flare...

    his silver hair
    the crown of wisdom he has earned
    in the toil of the struggle

    his heart
    amazingly large, and tender to the touch

    and he placed
    it in my hands to hold forever
