tis was the night of the full moon
but the moon never shone
for it was overcast with clouds of gloom
She was my little princess
my first born, my pride and my lass
my queen of the night
The king of the day,
the sun was at full mast
but the clouds of dearth
blinded his lustre
He was my second born
my budding prince
My sweet children,
Will you ever grace my vision?
your sweet countenance
was always pleasing to my eyes.
I never believed
that I deserved you.
on a better tomorrow
I will see your light
I will bask in the presence
of your love and affection.
One day, when the tide is even.
On that day
the day of atonement
I will sing praises to my GOD
I will continually glorify His Name
but in the mean time
I will be patient and sing of His mercies.
I know and have resigned to the fate that I might never see you again. Even if we do, you may not remember me as I remember (ember that???) you.
I want you to know that I remember you everyday and I pray for you everyday. You have helped me to get closer to GOD and I will always love you for that.
No matter what happens in your life, what careers you choose, weather you are rich or poor, weather you are graced by friends or loneliness, always ember’ that there is hope….the same hope that GOD has given me.
-To my children Aaron and Anaiah
