    My Aunt
    The love that has began
    Her knowing of connections
    Which would weight its time
    Or flow amongst smoothly
    I meet My Aunt
    Knowing not the details just the beginning
    A part as always
    Beings of familiar
    Having persons of reasoning
    Eyes now open
    Respect being an important aspect
    From upstream
    The teachings from My Aunt
    Is inevitable
    To be done
    Cared and Taught
    To virgin mothers as you were
    Ask My Aunt Partner
    About their story telling meeting
    Will begin
    With a long needed breath
    Slight clammy of the hands
    When it was known by both
    The need of one another
    Our day by day become a balance
    From our past
    Yet explaining ourselves throughout Love
    Take me to a grand future indeed
    Then I looked up at My Aunt.
