I crave that mental connection

it calms me

it settles my anxious mind

Stops all the chaos and brings it peace

such a rarity in life to find

I crave it because it also challenges me

makes me analyze my way of thinking

While not forcing your opinions on me

only allowing mine to grow from here to infinity

as little as 15 to 20 minutes and I’m fed

Mere conversation stimulation for my brain

sometimes when life permits, we get to talk for hours

and I’m set for awhile because I store all conversations we’ve had

In my mind to be retrieved at any time


If Tomorrow

If I awoke one morning to learn of your demise

My heart would be broken because I’d begin to realize

That when it came to you and me

There’d no longer be texts, conversations, laughter or tears

A void that cannot be replaced

An emotion that is sincere

That’s why I send my random messages and say my silly things

That’s why I purposely tend to be annoying

Cause you just never know what tomorrow brings

You might wake up one morning and learn of my demise

And in that brief moment I’d hope you’d realize

That your presence in my life was purposeful and

it was my pleasure to make you smile

A little hint of gray in my hair

Possibly a wrinkle or two on my forehead

And oh yes, extra pounds here and there

But I am Alive

God allowed me to see Age 55

He allowed me to wake up here in Aruba

With my health intact

Not everyone is afforded this Blessing of Age

I embrace and thank Him for it

In fact

Every single day is a blessing

It just so happens today

In my case, it is extra special you see…

It’s Happy Double Nickels Day To Me!!


You Can Stay

I aspire to be the best I can be

And realize my thoughts are my destiny

And only I can control them – free will – you see

But when I’m resting or sitting idle – re-energizing

You creep into my thoughts

It just means you’re meant to be there –

So I’ve decided to let you stay

Since you don’t re-direct, sabotage or cause me harm

Your presence there brings me peace

So stay—in the place I made for you –

You will always be Welcome within me

Untitled for now

The sound of his voice simply warms my heart

or is it my soul

An overwhelming sense of security comes over me

He says my name

He says it’s raining

Same feeling—— Nothing changes

Although it could be in my mind but

His presence – near or far –

Protects me

Comforts me

Everything will be all right

Because he said it would be

He uplifts me

He supports me…

He appreciates just me

And not what I can give or provide to him

What an amazing and beautiful feeling

To not hear or physically feel the love

But still know it’s there

And no matter which way the wind may blow

or what life may throw .. at us…

It has and seemingly will always remain the same

Inspired by a song by Drake….and situations as such ….

Is she your “who the hell wants to be 70 alone” girl

Or is she the love of your life

The completion to your world

Nothing wrong with either choice

The only difference is that one is more secure

While the other more fulfilling

If you happen to be lucky enough to have one in the same

Praise God for his Favor

Because those odds are one in a million



​This morning I witnessed a Sunrise…in all of its magnificent glory

A smile formed upon my face and I felt immensely encouraged

The first time I saw such a sunrise was many, many years ago

Experiencing it with my mother and little did I know

That something such as welcoming as a Sunrise would remind me of a Mother’s Love

My mommy just sat with her curious 10 year old looking out of the kitchen window with all of my quizzicality watching the morning unfold.

Sunrises & Mommy’s…. Priceless


Telepathic Waves

Telepathic Waves

Everyone knows that you are my inspiration, my go to…my muse

But lately, I haven’t seen you, heard from you and I’ve rarely even felt the presence of you

Initially, this really concerned me and saddened my spirit

I couldn’t figure out the reason why you were missing

Then I remembered you are a real person and have your own life…just like the rest of us do

And it seems telepathy intervened, because you called and I finished this poem and am inspired to write more.

You’re appreciated 

Written from the Heart of a Woman…Mine

Power of the Sun

Right now my life is in a state of confusion

Topsy turvey; nothing about it is amusing

I’m doing what I’m doing with no formal direction

I’m doing what I’m doing as I sit back and look at my reflection

Going through the motions and praying that I’m doing right

Asking for His guidance every single night

Trying to be strong for those who depend on me

At the same time fulfilling my contract to my employer as an employee

Moving in many directions while I’m sure I’m standing still

Asking myself if I’m dreaming and if what’s happening right now is really real..

And just when I think I cannot take any more

The sunshine appears with all of its warmth

The love and support that I can feel from its rays

Help me to continue on this journey/season I’m going through these days

I close my tear filled eyes and Thank God for the Sunshine… 

Feeling like that at this moment the Sunshine will always be mine

My presence is felt not announced
Born into this, earned the distinction

Love me or leave me

I honestly do not care

Want me or need me

Let me be brutally clear

Don’t waste my time trying to give me the world

I’m not impressed with material things, I’m not your typical girl

I can buy anything I want so I don’t need you to purchase a thing

Understand… I am a Queen worthy of a King

I will protect your throne; yet I will follow you no where

As I deserve to stand right beside you

And I expect your full love, support and care

Now if you cannot give me those things….

Move on; don’t’ waste my time…

Make room for someone who knows the importance of having a Queen in their Kingdom
