Thank you mom
Dear, mom, mamma, mommy
I have a clue, just for you
Mamma, thank you for all those kisses you showered me with,
Thank you for not being missing
Thank you for all your wishes,
Thank you for all your dreams and aspirations for me,
Thank you for being my first misses,
Thank you for all your quizzes.
A mother, a mother is like a sun-ray,
Always seen, always keen, always clean,
Always thoughtful, always careful, always tactful,
Always act-full, always caring, always sharing
Always hearing, always daring
Mama, you're always industrious,
I think you're precious,
And you always dress us,
But you never pet us,
That's how we know you are illustrious and courageous
And always praying for us!!!!
Thank you mom,
And may your days be filled with beautiful sunshine.
The moon took its place
In front of the sun
But all I saw
Was a chivalrous moon
Part the lips
Of a tremulous sun
Staring into her chandelier eyes
A sun that had waited
More than an era
For a moment
Quite like this
And as moon's head descended
Shadowed in partial mist
Earth watched and waited
As moon and sun joined
In Heavenly, Solar kiss.

At Last, I've Found You
I don't have to write sad poems anymore;
Neither will I spend another night alone.
I've searched a long time for a real love,
And at last, I've found you.
You've turned my darkness into light;
All my dull moments are now bright.
Euphoria replaces my sorrow,
My sullen days are gone,
And I no longer feel the loneliness.
Now I can smile because you've rescued me.
I thought love was through with me,
And all at once love is in my life.
You came and changed everything.
I'm so thrilled when you speak to me.
You give me warmth,
You bring me happiness,
You give me satisfaction,
You give me hope,
And above all, you give me love.
At last, I've found you.
I've waited so long for love to come to me.
Where have you been all this time?
My love for you is better than pure gold,
And I intend to make you proud of me.
Your love burns like an everlasting flame.
Dispiritedness filled my yesteryear,
But today my heart is overflowing with joy.
I don't know what tomorrow will bring,
But I'm so thankful to God that you're here.
At last, I've found true love.

Child of God
Thanks for the lessons thrown out ah door
so I have grown to love trees
can pick ackee with my mind and hands
Any early morning ... they stole my car
so I can now walk three miles with ease
Destroyed my books, my clothes, my memories
People on the streets,
replaced all this materially
And with love
Shattered my reputation
Now the broken glass reflects my sunlight
Many rainbows, putting me down jeering
Christ raising me up I stand up staring
Tore down the faucets, so there is no water
Funny a "wash-up" in a pan, cleans just as well
A bottle of H2O will always do
I don't hate anyone,
Dut these "events" have caused me
To love myself and God more
Because nothing keeps the Child of God
