    if you love me
    you'll learn

    how

    to watch the Dawn come up
    touching the lives
    of others

    defining a void
    enjoying
    success as well as failure

    listening in
    silence
    and hearing the
    tears
    falling loudly
    into dry palms

    moistened lips
    to kiss
    those who loved me
    first
    and
    last
    and even those
    who despise
    the

    smiling

    light brown eyes

    smiling

    satisfied

    strong black woman

    who cries
    the same as a
    small child

    crying and
    praising God

    irresponsible
    sometimes
    feeling

    guilt - y

    sitting alone
    to watch the Dawn come up

    alone ...
    not by choice
    but of responsibility

    nervous
    anxious

    planting an emotional garden
    of smiles and cries
    seeding privacy

    publicly
    life's weeds rise

    likewise

    if you love me
    you'll learn
    how to watch the Dawn come up

    as DAWN arises I sit and sigh...
    a deep breathe of enduring freedom
    meditating on the fact that I
    and my true Love can also be ONE!


    this is a great scribe!
