BLUE HEARTBEAT

Time has passed just like you, my heart doesn’t beat red it’s blue,

The universe is the same but my world has changed, without your presence my eyes still rain,

I hear your voice when thoughts of you arise, I feel your touch of motherly advice, when I try to go left you steer me right

You were an angel even before he gave you wings , you sweet mother always answered to my cries for you my voice was a ring , and your response to my need always immediate no answering machine, I always see your face my reflection in everything , looking in the mirror is a blessing so steep, To look at myself and see that peak of you in me, is where I find my joy and settle with peace , Visions of you from the past bring me sweet dreams , rather it’s day or it’s night , I can feel you inside , my belly reminds me of the cord that was cut, and my veins are so strong cuz they were made from your blood, I have no reason to be sad , but many to be glad , that I can proudly say with a smile, that You are my mother and I am your child , I’ve expanded your love by bringing new life , a child that is grand protected by your light , when I look at Iretta, or myself it brings a smile so bright, because now I can appreciate seeing you twice , and when she smiles I know everything is alright , it’s that message from god to you and you to me, when I see her dimples and full set of teeth, it’s not just a cheese, it’s the confirmation of your message being received, then I know that your with me so I continue to breathe, your love gives me oxygen that I can’t get from trees, your my Mother Nature it was time to go you didn’t leave , though I feel that it was too soon as I sit and reminisce in this room, I am alone physically but your prescious spirit is in the room, tears fill my eyes and I don’t know what to do , because only tears of your joy like a flower makes me bloom 🌺,

IN TUNE WITHOUT GATHER

Looking for found while seeking find

Tying loose ends caught in between bind

Waiting on forever while standing in time

Spending on worse praying for better 

Soaking up fry as you spill wetter

Looking for numbers and waiting letters

Waiting in reverse walking in drive

Already there, planning to arrive

Anticipating the bark during the bite

Stating the facts after the fight

Making the U turn after the right

Fixing the right inside the wrong

Cutting the short before the long

Singing the note before the song

Or watching the music video

Before the even record the audio

Would you take parenting before sexual pleasures

Mastering calmness under life’s pressures

You can’t laugh while you watch the coffin drop 

Pain will do what anger wants to pop 

Get caught prepared slipping unaware

Or you won’t find what wasn’t found elsewhere.
