Love is Real
Love is True
It Takes Trust
Of Your Heart
Emptying out Old
Filling Up with New
Love is the Foundation
Intertwined As One
Challenges you may Face
Surely you will Overcome
Seek Him Now
They will declare their Vows
The Covenant will be done
As they Shine like the Sun
She Holds the Sacred Lock
He Beholds the Key
A Priceless Treasure
All will be Matched
The radiance of One
This Poem was inspired by words of encouragement given to Childhood Friend who is Bride to Be.
We have come a Mighty Long Way
We have not yet Arrived
Much progress has been Made
Many walls have come Down
We have even walked Hand in Hand
Unfortunately, there some People who were Raised with Hearts of hate and Racism,
Passed down through family generations as a Norm
Holding on to that which has been Engrained
Only Truth from the Light can Remove such Scales
There is Hope, we still have a ways to Go
Love shall Prevail
I responded to a Blog Post in Honor of
Dr. Martin Luther King about a month ago.
The comment I wrote resonated with me. Yes, I do copy some of my comments.
Thanks so much for reading 📖🤗

The Winter Storm caused sudden Power Outages in the Sinclair Neighborhood. Darkness seem to engulf the small Private Community. Somehow this Welcoming well to do neighborhood had lost it’s glitter, it’s lights.
The Sinclair Country Club Lights could usually be seen glistening in the moonlight from up to five to ten miles out in any direction. It’s appearance from afar with the purple overhead lighting gave it Grand Stadium look.
Sara could tell we were frightened and starting to get frigid from the cold. She had been the Twins Nanny since they were three months old. They just celebrated their twelfth birthday last week before their parents left on business.
There Cellphones still had service. Sara connected them on a three way call as moved about the house getting blankets, the Candle from the kitchen, drinks and snacks. She kept the girls engaged in conversation as she gathered everything and placed it in a basket.
Once she got the girls snuggled as a bug with the blankets. Sitting on the floor Sara lit the Small Jarred Candle. It flickered and flared giving off a gentle bright light that gave them all a sense of security. The Flickering Candle pushed back the darkness giving them the sense of light.
Sara settled on the small Loveseat in the girls room and phone the Electric Company regarding the PowerOutage. As she suspected their had been various calls. There was a recording offering apologies, explanation and a timeline of 2 hours.
Sara took a deep breath as looked at the Flickering Candle the beauty of the light. The Twins were amazed at the melted wax, it color against the jar.
They enjoyed eating snacks, telling stories of old and how they will never forget this night. Their time together, the small Jarred Candle, which gave them so much Light.

It was the first time that she had ever gone out with a group of people. Between her closest friends and her Co-Workers they made Sara feel as though she was walking around in a world of four corners.
Sara was beautiful, confident, professional, full of life, exciting, versatile, loved music, worked too hard and spent her weekends playing it safe. She was keeping her heart in tack, under lock and key.
Games of heart have frantic consequences, which were good for lessons learned through experiences. Sparing Sara’s heart from the Rollercoaster Trill Ride Relationship, which are quite unstable.
Once Sara’s boundaries were clear, she enjoyed a night out with friends Socializing, Laughing, and Dancing. It was Great, a prolific night out with friends. Lasting memories…
Then to share in her Besties’ Birthday and Fifthteen Year Work Anniversary Celebration.
What a Grand Night!

So many beautiful stories and well wishes were shared. Many brought tears of joy and Triumphant.
