    This goes out to my baby

    We was in love before
    In a far off land, it was just
    You and I
    We grew together…stronger
    Played in the sun
    Slept under the moon
    You became my heart protector
    Your love brought hope where it was none
    Why…hold my hand?
    My darkness finally became light
    Feed me knowledge
    The mental pleasure releaser
    You were my soul protector
    Baby, why you got me feeling?
    To bring me down?

    See before, in this land
    Upon the sea we was, wind and air
    Entangled all together...
    On a sweet breeze of you and I
    My magic man, making me giggle
    Placing a smile when I didn’t want to
    Mended my heart when it was cold
    Why you got me feeling?
    To bring me down?

    See for me…
    Hope began to grow
    I was alive
    We dance together in the flower garden
    Picked hope together
    And we grew stronger as two
    Now…
    Why you want to hurt me like this?
    Are you just that blind?
    Why you doing the things you?
    When did you become cold?
    Why you got me feeling?
    To bring me down?

    No one can give you hope, joy, happiness or love...nor can they take it from you.
    But you can, however share all of those things with a loved one. Find your own joy and learn to share.
    Beautiful piece poet

    re: Why

    Lovely and sad at the same time. Sometimes we can give too much power
    to the one we love and get hurt. Gurl Take it back.
