    You're like.....

    The last day of school
    walking home with friends
    Paying all the bills
    and still having ends

    Going to grandma's house
    and eating all her cookin'
    Steppin' in the club
    and everyone's lookin'

    Knowing your lines in a play
    when you didn't rehearse
    Folks showing love
    when you kicked a mad verse

    Leaving an interview
    knowing you got the job
    Hot summer days
    and corn on the cob

    Playing jump rope as kids
    or red light green light
    Remembering the days
    we yelled out "street fight!"

    Monkey-in-the-middle
    and kickball were official
    Hopscotch, jacks, double-dutch and whistles

    Rollerskating at the park
    or falling off your bike
    Neighborhood block parties
    and freestylin' on the mike

    Embracing the hues
    of beautiful black skin
    Realizing that
    Black history 365 is in

    Being tickled so hard
    that you laughed even squealed
    Finding out in English
    that Ebonics was real

    The sweet awkwardness
    of first having sex
    And the good piece
    that had you dreaming
    at your desk

    Listening to music
    with the lights down low
    Having a crush on someone
    and they don't even know

    Phonograph records
    with needles held down by nickels
    Five and Dime candies
    and 15 cent pickles

    From the first day we met
    'til I called you friend
    Watching a favorite movie
    again and again

    Curling up with a book
    and a hot cup of tea
    me and you, you and I
    reciting poetry

    Sending praises to my GOD
    who watches from above
    To letting you know
    you're among the things
    that I love

    like spring rain cascade over summer sunshine sitting at the shore
    as waves splash my mind rumbling

    Thank you Foxy for the love for this piece, but I am also female. Not speaking romantically of a female at all. :D
