A Love Poem for My African-Brazilian

A Love Poem for My African-Brazilian

 

 

 

 

 

 

My heart thuds at the mention of your name

Dislodging the faintest thoughts of all else

It flutters, an invasion of countless butterflies

A merry-go-round of emotions no words can qualify

 

I call you a gem but you are so much more

In your graceful steps and mischievous wiles

I see so much more—perhaps a queen

Who’ll cheer her king, never ceasing to please

 

I see so much more, more than any line could tell

More than my buoyed steps could possibly show

I clutch a tiny book of dreams to my thudding chest

Voicing the romantic wishes of a lovers quest

 

I see you my African-Brazilian, in the vistas of my dreams

As clear as day, feisty and proud as any in her bloom

I marvel at your iconic sincerity, the inebriating glow of your being

Sweeps me daily off my feet and makes me float in a swoon

 

I am lost yet, in the amperage of your childlike visage

Your enchanting smile, your artistic stride . . . gosh! I pray for this ride

A rising wish to spend eternity and beyond by your side

Give this anxious heart a cushion in your slender arms
