    I am older, living in a new world
    and although it is a different time,
    I am transported backwards
    and
    I walk the roads you once walked
    when you matriculated through these halls...
    and I see the new young ladies
    looking at me with interested/eager eyes
    of not-so-innocence and I can only
    smile
    I feel my age in this timeless
    place and wonder what it must
    have been like
    when you were here
    young and beautiful with your
    natural hair
    your natural air of self-assurance
    surely I would have fought to
    have you for myself
    even back then

    I still would have been your first
    african experience, when your eyes were
    bright and seeking everything about
    love that could be found

    I would have loved you
    under these same oak trees ....
    where you loved another....
    (I recall your bedtime stories) :wink:

    You are removed from here almost
    30 years
    but I feel your presence even now
    as I allow my mind to travel back in time
    to find your roots
    and feel your origins
    those wonderful things about you
    that caused me to love you
    when we finally met
    17 years ago
