I Love


CAM01206

I love

your hues of brown

some light

in some places

dark

in others

hues

melded together

making colors

never before seen

I love

your hands

always warm

Beautiful

but yet strong

your feet

although worn

are like stilts

taking you higher

Although pain

guides them with

each step

I love

your eyes

small

but they

see

father

than you could

ever imagine

that you

would go

I love

your mouth

not too big

yet not too small

lips

perched

ready to bless

with thoughts

given by

the Creator

I love

your mind

you see your faults

but are eager

to change them

into greatness

because you know

that learning is

better

than not

And that life

is about growing

and

getting better

I love

your stretch marks

they bear witness

to the life

that you gave

A constant reminder

that you

are the root

that gives

nourishment

to the tree

its branches

and leaves

It took awhile

to see you

but now

I do

and

I love you

for who you were

For who you are

for who you will become

I love me…

Different

It almost seems impossible

Not to think about the past

The past is tangible

It’s something you can see, touch, and some cases feel

I want to go to another level

Where there is more

more than that

that happens then this

I’m ready to do something different

I got a taste for it

I’m craving it

I just feel like it’s time

Time to go higher

Just pick up our feet

And just do it

We always kidding

But for real what are we doing

For real though…

What are we doing

have we ever really said

But then apart of me

says

so what

Why you gotta be doing something
