    A poem of a child a young man ... One he writen a year ago
    as i pose for the 10,000 time i set it free for his spirit to see.


    *****************NOT FAR AWAY*****************

    Not far away i will be
    for the love of you and me
    holding hands with thee

    i shell be smiling over my love
    my sweet Jahari
    she is my life here on earth
    giving birth to my two
    and when my time to take my place
    i'll face the heaven's above
    i hope not to hurt a soul
    i wish not to leave
    but if it's to be
    please remember me

    I may be gone from this earth
    to a new found holy turf
    above the law and my executioner

    not far away i will be

    I did not die , no need to cry
    let me be as i sleep in peace
    i'll leave a token to cherish
    my love and heart
    Jahari and my two of my heart
    here is where we start
    and our pleasure to have known
    is a grand home we have
    I hope this poem reach you in time
    to see you through and the pain
    left on you and my two
    a girl and boy whom is my joy
    a dear dad i'm not dead
    just took my place where i'm due
    remember my open love for you

    not far away i will be

    no longer will my heart cry
    my father took me off in the sky
    i write to the love i have givin
    to my heart and all i tell you i'm not far away

    *REDD*

    Unto u dear one not far u be
    a bond of love i'll treasure thee
    u was my first and son
    my earthly born as we stroll
    through life down da path
    i will miss u even more but
    inside my heart it smiles
    knowing ya safe in his care
    dis will be something i can bare
    for those two u left so true
    i will do all i'm to do
    remember son our lovin bond
    and they will grow and blossom
    as u did under my care
    I love u Redd
    see u soon child ..........RIP

    :heart: :love: :heart: :) :heart:


    not of my pen but his
    not of my hand but his
    thank u kid......$R

    This is beautiful dialogue between souls who will never be fully parted, because it lives and speaks forever in the heart.
