Window of My Soul

When I look into your eyes I see the eyes of many faces.

I hear the voice of many waters and feel the hearts of many souls.

I hear the cooing of a dove, your unconditional love.

Graceful and unassuming.

When I look into your eyes I feel your need for my love.

You devour my presence and inhale my every word.

When I look into your eyes, my children

I see you, but I also see them

The others who I know not, but that I dream about.

Children from many places, many walks and many races

I see you.

I feel you.

And I pray for you.

When I look into your eyes

I can see through the window of my soul.

I see you

Your trials and tribulations.

Girl!

You are beautiful in every way.

In your naturalness, your  finesse

You are like still waters

Gracefully and stealthily

Moving

Doing

Nurturing.

Through it all, you maintain.

Pain

Suffering

Sweat

Tears

You are beautiful!

You still rise

Woman

Daughter

Beautiful!

You still smile

Laugh and dance

Beautiful!

You still make love

Give love

Create Love

Live Love

Girl!

You are beautiful!

Gracefulness

Gracefulness is a mental and spiritual
Posture

Air of Confidence
That manifests in the flesh
As Beauty and elegance
Agility and flexibility
Suppleness
Humbleness.

Gracefulness is balance and stability
Strength clothed in softness
Gentleness that is assertive
Disciplined.

Gracefulness is guarded and careful
Analyzing and calculating
Intentional
Purposeful
Postured and Poised.

Walking With My Spirit

I awaken everyday with someone,
Feeling thankful for the day that God has made.
We look forward to the work that is set out before us.
We feel, we think, we pray.
We eat and we walk together.
We love together. We cry together.
We plan together and we move together.
We breath as one.

We are married,
Til death do us part.
Even then, we will cling,
To each other.
Just as love is eternal,
So is our bond.
Our eternal life bond.
We were born together.

That someone is me.
My Truth.
My Passions.
My Dreams.
My Aspirations.
My Spirit.

I will walk with you,
In this life and the next,
Eternally.
