When you think of me,
and I know you do,
What type of hue
colors your view?
I hope the backdrop
isn't just various shades of blue...

When whatever we were supposed to be
turns into whatever it was
disappointment shouldn't consume because
it didn't fully blossom, sadly, it rarely does
Yes, hearts that used to be all aflutter
alas, are no longer a buzz

I know, I never would have known that about you,
and you knowing that about me
sometimes makes salutations blurt out uncomfortably
but fortunately, or unfortunately
Getting to know someone, means sharing some secrets
and regretting some, inevitably

Perhaps, when those thorny thoughts
just won't leave us alone
we'll consider each other to be, another road to the throne
one step closer to the king or queen who is yet, unknown
and learning even more about ourselves in this trek
steadily approaching that love of our own

So I breathe a deep sigh, remembering
that life does keep moving, with us, or without
so I try to purge any regret and self doubt
More often than not, it just doesn't work out.
But when it does, blessed, truly, are all roads
that set our feet to journey to love devout

If only we knew the "what if", the, "whys" ...but we don't.
Cause surely, That's a part of life...a part of growth. We enjoy what we have, If and when we have it...and move through life with a smile.

That was sweet nevar, so glad you're here to respond so. Thank you.
Thank you for seeing beauty in this, and saying so 4everluv.
Nothing is for certain, that's true. And those "ifs", those ifs can become stumbling blocks, if we allow them to be. Your support means a lot queent, thank you.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
