    so this is all he said
    hi baby i missed you
    but this is what i heard

    hey there brown star
    you know girl i love you
    and the way you do all
    those warm womanly things you do

    you know like the way you
    tuck the sun into the moon
    then carry them in the back
    of your throat while you openly
    coo my name out to the universe

    you know like the way you
    glow when you fly with
    all those stars twinkling
    in your hips while you glide
    across the texas night sky
    searching for my heart
    to alight your love on

    you know like the way you
    address me with love and respect
    my precious beautiful black man
    my sovereign benevolent beloved king
    my man my friend my brother
    making me smile when the sweet sound
    rolls off your lips into my ear

    yeah baby and when i say i miss you
    that means do what you do
    i'm not going to stand in your way
    take three steps forward or
    fall back two either way
    i'll be there to catch you
    because this brother got you

    yes, my 1 and only poet
    i heard all this and more
    when you simply said
    "hi, baby, missed you"

    Strangely enough, Sis, I was listening to that song when I wrote this piece. Ha! Sisters to the end. I have missed you.

    Thank God, for woman...
    She, being the stuff that dreams are made of.
