    my sustuh,
    your worth can't
    be calculated
    in any currency

    there is no
    abacus, no measure
    accurate enough
    to determine

    how much...
    how many...
    how often...
    how tight...

    ...you deserve
    ...you serve
    ...you swerve
    ...your verve

    lady...

    you came head first
    into this life
    and immediately
    commanded
    attention

    your crown
    adorned with
    locks thick
    your skin,
    smooth,
    your heritage
    rich

    girlfriend...

    the wind may
    sometimes press
    against your
    face
    but God blessed
    you with
    natural rhythm
    and grace

    and you need not
    underestimate
    your gifts
    the very words
    you write
    edifies and uplifts


    lil sis...

    when he whispered
    his mind
    shared a piece
    of his soul
    it was but the prelude
    to his emotional whole

    and the half has not
    begun to be told

    ....

    Queen...

    your treasures
    are worth much
    more than the pound
    or rubles, or marks,
    or francs
    what you have cannot
    be contained in banks...

    if

    he brings
    completion
    to your
    work of art...

    you're
    all the money
    you need
    to have his heart...

    Indeed!

    This is one of those that you need to post from time to time just to let our sustahs have value in themselves--that they have self worth--that they are priceless--Amen--Ra
