Letter to You

Another beautiful presentation from Tosha Michelle

Everything I Never Told You

If I could, I would shield you from your own sorrows. From phones that don’t ring, the 7 AM alarm clock, missing the train, fair-weather friends, the frayed ends of the welcome mat.

I would protect you from backaches and headaches, and unnecessary tirades, the losing team. Mostly, I would shelter you from false hope, women with an agenda to harm, and those wildflowers meant only to disarm.

I would encourage you to take ferries and planes, and leave the ink revised map at home,  to become a mid spring season, dandelions covered, savor the sunshine, take risk.  Breathe.

Remember the music of your soul. Listen to your heart’s sway. I would implore you to make love, make art, and to praise the song and rhythm your body prays.

I CAN FEEL YOU #Love #Poetry

Loving me patiently

As though you loved me

S p e e c h l e s s

I am in awe that you too remember

And overwhelmed that you still love me

With a love that deeply flows

From the same pure springs


untainted realm

You still love me enough to tell me

I’m taken aback that you’ve lovingly memorialized

What I’ve unintentionally forgotten

Thank you


I can…
