    (and forever)


    how could i not
    continue to bask in the engulfing tidal wave--
    that symbolizes the love you possess...
    for me--

    (yes Lord...for me)

    she loves me...and I thank YOU

    I once heard that--
    *we shouldn't count life by how many breaths we take--
    yet we should count how many times it takes our breath away--
    and you...yes you love--
    you
    take
    ev-er-e
    breath.

    I love life because--
    you love me because--
    i am who i am--
    and--
    i love that...

    (smiling)

    and you.

    sean.

    SHAZZAMMMM!!!!

    You're incredible, Poet! It iz about the breath, tho', after all. Life-affirming, the spirit of our beings.

    This love affair we have with written/spoken word has such intrinsic rewards...as we are inspired, we inspire!

    And I wanna thank YOU, sean! Yes, Lawd! You made it righteous; you worked your flow-etry and I am honored.

    Breathe your words sean!

    Thank you so much for feelin it!

    Truly...

    A meaningful dedication to one, absolutely, deserving of it. You always 'hit the nail, right, on the head' with your flow, pa. Keep it thorough...
