Love came calling

My short poem from my heart to yours…

Love came calling

from a far place I never dreamed,

It spoke tenderly and softly

carried me in its arms and gently grinned.


Love found me willing…

but slightly afraid

I had been hurt once..

didn’t want to experience pain again


Love desired to still me

in its warm embrace

I truly conceeded and discovered peace

Giving me a new beginning through its graceful means


But most importantly…


Love taught me to forgive my past

To realize my life is not a farce

To dream pleasant dreams for tomorrow –

A sure way to carry me through all worldly sorrow.


P.S: ‘For Wale Taylor’ is now published at Femme Lounge.  Love you guys for reading still… mwah! mwah! mwah!
