Longing for the aspirant childhood dream
That dances in my nocturnal journey
I prayed for the exotic union
Laid bare on the altar of Essequibian love
As ebony is enriched by the beauty of love
The waters so dark shed its inhibitors
Like the inhabitants of Paradise pure is the desire
One stroke in a thousand years
Love through faith
Love under the raining rooftops
In the waves that musically awaken buried passion
Like Damon and Cuffy
A revolution within is born and dreams lived again!
Passing each other
One from New York the other in Toronto
Although they knew each other
It took fifteen years and a cousin to line the stars
Now what was a call on CIOG dinner day
Turned out be a flirt with love and now down the aisle a few months after
How coild a girl with a mind of her own surrender?
A girl unconquerable by any other?
This is what love does
Breaks the bones of stubborn resistance
Softens the heart of bitter stoics
Makes a man leave the big apple for the apple of his eye
So fasting and prayers is the new Gucci
Smiling under those stern eyes she lives
Love that gives faith power
Is like pious Ali never deserting Fatima, not now nor ever!

They say hell is falling in love across the Atlantics
Not everyone gets the Titanic love story
But falling in and out
Like the waves that bond them
Daryl couldn't keep his eyes off this Canadian beauty
Sam determined to marry the one of her heart
She travels to the land of the hummingbird
He lives up to his promise
No more digicel and Skyping through dinner
No matter the difference of culture
Faith in love knows no barrier
Yusuf and Zulaikha
Muhammad and Aisha
When tradition meets love
A union so blessed that the Kaba makes the dua!

He signals the cross and raises his head to The Most High
Smiles with confidence after 2 golds why not
On your mark get set
And faster than light the Bolt won 3rd gold!
Touching Andree and flying Olympian style
He cheers on his fans with such sportsmanship
The air waves are crackling
Hussain Bolt is the fastest on earth!
Jamaica green flag flying
The stadium rises and our Caribbean hearts swell
Another Garvey, another Marley
He signals the cross and lifts his head to the sky smiling!
Usain Bolt Don Anderson

A year has passed and the wounds are still bleeding
You moved on beyond the walls quickly
That smile and laughter still fresh in our minds
How can we forget the joy of your face?
How can we not want to spend the birthdays together?
When will this troubled heart find ease?
You flew away with life's wonder!
Under the moonlight and into the sunset
Your every ounce of kindness shines brighter
People who knew you say she was indeed a beautiful woman
Few are remembered this way- you were everyone's mother!
The prayers you taught me
The pursuit of happiness you empowered me
The sacrifice for education you gifted me
I have nothing to return except these frail hands clasped in prayer!
I love you mommy!
