    Alright my brother the dust
    has started to clear.
    And what is so amazing is
    some of our long lost family
    is here.
    Wanting us to kiss and make
    up.

    I am extending that hand to
    you and hoping that the fight
    is through. Know that I am
    a strong willed soul, who is
    going to always have control
    of her voice.
    Other folks don't like my choice.

    But, to wound a spirit is so unkind
    I know cause many wounded mine
    Soft songs of surrender, smoldering
    ashes of anger turn to dust and
    fly away on western breezes.
    We are all grown folks who should
    do as he/she pleases.

    I see the burrowed brow that is on
    your beautiful face now.
    And so much has flown in slam style
    other's wonder how.
    Much misunderstanding, can lead to
    greater understanding.
    For when we see what other's feel
    it makes our responses much more
    real.

    Touching your hand , you withdraw
    tenative, you know this Queen is
    sensitive...But you be a King and
    I respect that. Bringing you your
    hat you didn't expect that.

    I can't promise I will always be silent.
    When other's are more extreme even
    violent. Outspoken is my instrument,
    but doing damage not my intent.
    "Cracks in the house"...
    No lights in the windows
    shining clarity on our own negligence
    when others do take offense, they
    get on the defense.
    I choose not to sit on the fence!
    So I have nothing but love for you
    sweet prince!
    We may not always agree.
    But forever mindful I will always be.
