Poem: Kymani Marley


Your presence as I watch you

from afar

shows strength, courage—joy

your eyes reminds me of

a past lover long ago

I admired, adored—still love

as distance speaks in void

My heart beats—flutters

like a butterfly

As I watch your presence dive

in the saltiness of the sea–One Love

Being tender—being strong

I felt God, your beautiful face

touching mine, your roots flowing,

dancing freely to a song

I knew in my mother’s womb

like the wind that moves

many mountains—-tree

I Am reminded of HIM

I Am reminded how great

love is hidden deep within.
