    spirit clouds above my head
    following me
    no, moving with me
    as I walk in early morning sunshine

    they are my friends
    relatives
    lovers
    those who touched me
    taught me
    laughed with me
    they left me so much to remember

    they join me today to say hello
    their odd shapes against a winter-blue sky
    reflecting their own individuality
    their own personalities
    one so different from the other

    "Just checking on you bruh"
    one would say
    "You still take ten years to eat a meal"
    another would say
    "Proud of you homeboy"
    can be heard from the cloud furthest away

    we laughed and talked inside my head
    a fifty year rewind of days gone by
    all the characters
    all the times
    childhood
    music and basketball
    prison visits
    parenthood
    lovely ladies
    death bed confessions
    what a morning I am having

    but even the magic of the clouds
    must give way to an eager sun
    and the moving hands of the clock
    one by one the clouds of my life faded away
    back to their place of eternity

    I wanted to hug each one
    give the Kingsborough handshake to a few
    I wanted to find a subway and harmonize a song
    play a game of basketball
    talk some trash
    dance the dances of R&B
    make love to a few of those lovely ladies

    in lieu of that
    I smiled
    my heart said goodbye
    and I waved to the sky

    Beautiful moments of reflections
    Warm memories of collections

    Personally, they are nothing but perfections
    Or, maybe I'm just fond of my recollections

    Nice...very nice.

    :thanks: for sharing
