    =======================



    Me and You



    You’ve always done this whenever I think of you,
    I feel happy, glad, blessed that I met you,
    But today it’s different
    I’m feeling you so much that I had to put pen to paper
    I know we are in two different hemispheres
    And that your beautiful brown skin is being caressed
    By rays that are only present
    When fellowshipping with our Mother Africa
    But I want you to know that I’m feeling your vibe
    I remember the first time we met
    Since then our intimacy grew, and my respect for your feminity too
    It’s true that there has been a time, or two
    When I paused for a minute, or two
    And imagined our each becoming both,
    Our me and you, becoming us and we
    When I paused and imagined our relationship reaching a different level…..
    In the meantime though, based upon what we’ve lived,
    Upon your impact on my life,
    The smiles you brought me, the advice you gave me,
    The way that I can actually be true whilst standing in front of you,
    I want you to know that,
    I cherish you, appreciate you, admire you, miss and love you.
    I would much rather be able to show you my love, but distance forbids that
    So this is my way of pouring out my heart to you,
    And my way of telling you that I’ll be there for you
    Through your frowns and your beautiful smiles
    Like the one you are wearing right now,
    At every time you’re scared, happy, anxious, relieved,
    At every time you will face one of life’s trials
    Though we might be separated but a mile, or two,
    I’ll be praying for you,


    This right here is from me to you,
    This right here is me for you,
    This right here is me and you.

    I miss you

    A beautiful peace....

    your words show that you love her simply because she is who she is...no pretence, no expectations, just an acceptance of her in all her beauty....and that is such a good thing...

    Welcome:heart:
