    from the first moment
    your ever-present afrikan
    essence…
    began haunting
    my every waking dream
    it seems that…
    you have been my focus
    …the constant center
    of my heart’s attention
    …the foundation that
    fortifies my happiness
    …the axis on which my
    world wondrous-ly rests
    …& love will never do
    without you.

    so when—
    butterfliez & emptiness
    saturate my soul
    on those singular sunday
    mornings spent sipping
    coffee... without you
    & when—
    i feel cold on those
    solitary summer nights
    spent sleep-less with
    Miles... & no you…

    i realize that—
    loneliness has literal-ly
    become the
    unfortunate prerequisite
    to my
    impending contentment…
    so my
    primary point of view
    consistent-ly stays on
    anticipating (you)
    & the day when we’ll be
    in the same place…
    …at the same time

    but until our heaven on
    earth is realized…

    i need your energy
    surrounding me…
    i need you as close
    as fiber optics will allow
    us to be…
    i need you always
    …in all ways
    remembering that
    This love… OurLove…
    is everything & we are
    most definite-ly
    …destiny’s children. :)

    & for those who may not believe

    i just sing:
    i don’t care what they say
    about you… they don’t know
    how i feel for you…
    …don’t care what they say
    about me… they don’t know
    if they can’t see
    …”

    (power to the people…
    & to the sanctity of OurUnion.)

    as the world turns...about the axis of x, y, and z...and he who holds sway of your yesterday and today...let tomorrow bring...smiles of happiness, joy, and glee...all this, i say, to thee.

    blessed be...YOU.
