You are my North Star.
Perpendicular strength, through Ages.
You are rocked by none.
My galaxy of Wisdom.
My odyssey of emotions.
the ointment to my heartache.
The Everlasting arms,
to cradle me through lows
and loft me to highs.
enduring moonbeams of eye contact…
…how firebrand-Love was etched into my neural pathways,
formed by distinct determinants
of leading, mentoring, truth-telling.
Walking me forward, just like you talked it.
Laughter tinkled the ivories of your rearing repertoire.
Sweet tea and cake, your call to arms,
if threats to Peace took hold
within our dwelling.
You were brewed to be Strong.
you were, are and always will be
the land, wherein I make my Home.
Security, now Eternity…
… I see you hold court in your mansion.
I live life, like it’s golden,
because you coloured it so boldly…
where, before, I have never been.
You are constant.
with top billing,
upon my internal movie screen…
…all Monroe-matinée looks, as you had on this plane.
No longer tired.
Light as the air you inhabit.
as I stir my mental cup, filled to the brim with you,
spilling over, in my brain,
…dedicate morning moments
to the magic of our connection
and, by Grace,
always feel your Presence and Protection
as the most Divine, angelic refrain…
never more Real… more True.
