Want.

I want to be beautiful. Like roses in a bunch, Like Christopher's during brunch. I want to be soft. Like cashmere against my skin, Like silk moving freely in the wind. I want to be happy. Like children after school, Like carpenters with a new set of tools. I want to be everything. Like you …

Sleepless Nights.

Each night, my body turns restlessly, Swimming through perspiration. While hoping no, praying, That maybe, God willing, I catch a whiff of your perfume, Buried in the soul of my pillowcase.

In Retrospect.

You transformed me into a storehouse, For the love you so generously bathed me in. The support and care, On the days I was unaware, Of the greatness planted within.
