    You are the greatest testament to perfection itself
    You are divine beauty, life, and inspiration
    You are the very essence of spirit, the soul of passion
    You are the magnificent splendor of the universe
    For in all things we see your beauty personified
    Without you I do not wish to exist
    You are my every heartbeat, my every thought
    My every dream, you are strong as the force of a violent
    Tumultuous wind, yet with the gentle kiss of a warm breeze
    You are the greatest of God’s creation
    For without you man will never be complete
    You are the epitome of all that is desiarble
    The greatest treasure of them all.
    You are the black woman.

    Now Bishop...these are among my favorite poems, that I enjoy reading from my brotha. In times like these, a sista needs to hear that she is the greatest of treasures. You are sweet :heart:
    If you are married, your wife posses a treasure in you...she's blessed. Keep scribin Bishop, is good to read from you.

    All right now, that is too smooth!

    Thank you my brother for sharing this pearl of wisdom.
    But, without you my black brotha, "Knowing a woman's worth"
    we would not know our true value on this earth.
    You make me proud to be a "BLACK WOMAN".
    Love ya immensely, that is one lucky woman, who is inspiring your heart to pour out such sweet melodic prose!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    I/We see the testament of perfection in every mirror you look in, In every thing you do ...you see the testament of perfection, because it's I ..."The Black Woman"... that gave life to you ..."The Black Man" .
    Has that every been done by another?? ...hmmm, ain't that perfection?
    beautiful piece poet, glad this came back!
