Hey sis...

I have missed you a bunch. You have been on my mind and I pray that you are well - physically and emotionally. Maybe you'll come out of hiding long enough to attend my baby shower this summer!

Love you!

I loved her for her beautiful strength
For her I loved the words she spoke to me

I loved her for her graceful plead
To clean up the streets, respect women and understand that she will be on your side as long as you are

I loved her for every reason
In every season she sung spring-like words heartfelt, as well as heard
She is my sister deep in my heart
Like swing low sweet chariots
Carrying me home, I roam

I shed tears drowning my heart
For I long to hear her again in my ear filling my heart
For I know she’s been through something hard
Her rhyme has dimmed slightly
And my vision is blurry, too

I want to feel her again like I did before
Please I pray that my sister returns
Don’t closed the door
Keep stepping forward onward strong like you still are
I know your shield has grown heavy
And your armored heart has been pierce
But you are not alone for there are soldiers who have your back
I got you sister
I got you
Come back quickly
I want to feel your spit

Oh, Supa, Supa, Supa...

Girl, can I share a therapist? I'm just back on the blogging scene & when I do my updates, we're going to have to share a martini and Xanax.

Just shouting in after a long absence.

Peace
