I see you through rose-colored glasses
But you wear dark shades
You’re hiding from my sunlight
While I bathe in your rain

My love is never-ending
But I have such limited time
With me, there’s no storm coming
Only blue skies and infinite shine

Sankofa Love

She had a smile like the sunrise,
Bright and ever-rising
Wide as the horizon,
A light so mesmerizing
Its warm rays flowing up the peaks of her cheeks,
Traveling to the depth of her brows
Then descending into the coast of her eyes:
A heart-shaped path
To where her smile was most alive...
