    THE ANGELS

    Broken lines, hardship times
    What goes around … comes back around
    Spiritual connection can’t be unbound.

    It’s those closest to you, I’ve found
    Who seem to knock you to the ground
    Do they know the damage done?
    Destinies unspun.

    In hindsight, would she even have begun
    To plot and toil?
    To Steal and spoil
    Life itself?
    Instead of suckling me on spiritual wealth
    And feeding me good mental health

    I wish she could see with spiritual eyes
    I wish she didn’t need the hatred and lies
    I wish she were happy and healthy and wise
    I wish I could value her words of advice

    Mother of mine, I cry for your heart
    You were hurt from the start
    I know.
    But if you’d have let go,
    And started to show
    The love that we needed
    You would have succeeded

    In smiling and laughter,
    In happy ever after
    You would have had kisses
    From grandchildren’s lips
    And daughter’s hands
    To rub your sore hips
    You would have seen love
    Shining out of my eyes
    Each time I told you
    I had a surprise

    I would’ve grown with my soulmate
    You would have gained a great son.
    We would have given you blessings
    - Grandkids and special new bonds

    18 years of our love denied
    Mom, don’t you remember the tears I cried
    When you laughed and lied - replaced love with false pride?
    Yet you knew what he meant to me deep inside.

    But thank you for lacking in motherly love,
    for always thinking you’d done enough.
    Whilst searching in ways we don’t want to think of
    I found it in Him who sees you from Above.

    I want you to know that the outcome of this
    Is a strong, beautiful and valued black Sis’
    A deep woman – with a heart as loving
    in all things as it is strong and growing

    So stay there, sad mother of mine,
    Supposed lifeline.
    - Stay there and decline
    To open your mind.
    Close your eyes
    Blind
    As you miss my new shine.

    Because angels watched over where you did not
    They formed a plan to combat your plot
    They kissed my soul with the courage to seek
    And whispered strength when I felt weak.
    And once I’d taken a third and fourth look
    Right there .. That same smile
    lending light to Facebook.
    As easy as that - passed to me on a plate
    My first, My fate. My only Soulmate.
    And the angels smile as they watch and wait…

    Whilst memories fall back into place
    Filling voids in time and space
    two souls lock again – secure
    battled by bad mind intentions no more.

    Our strengths, now joined together
    Will protect us from your kind forever
    My LoveSoul is back – if only as a friend
    Lady… in who’s arms will your life end?

    Broken lines, hardship times
    What goes around … comes back around
    Spiritual connection can’t be unbound.
