    Hotep All,

    I've never posted a poem before so I am asking for your thoughts on this one. This is one I had to write in order to let go. Peace, Amber

    Still Growing

    where the letters of love are tightly sewn
    look and see how we've grown
    bright and beautiful still
    but separate, never the same
    I miss your spirit, how you glow
    how you break me, you remake me
    I know you are still beautiful
    excited when happy
    unmoving when your thoughts are planted
    the seed is still in me
    and changes with my seasons
    as I unravel the reasons I left
    how does one move from a life so true
    I still taste your smell
    bleed from your misunderstanding
    listen for your laugh
    find myself searching in dreams

    I've stopped waiting on the call
    asking me to try
    telling me why
    you even lean on your own
    your doubts you won't share
    your hopes don't find me
    though I feel them just there

    Last I saw you - your hair
    uncovered, looked neat and dark
    around your brown face
    still growing
    I'm sure even you will open enough
    for the woman I could not be
    to come in
    to care for the hair
    I love but had to leave
    to care for you
    who I love but had to leave
    we have known a love
    that never leaves
    don't believe me
    Keep Knowing

    Keep Growing
