I Came…

I came, and I sat by you,
Black as the night,
hands as rough as a rock; but strong,
you didn’t notice how strong,
because you wouldn’t touch me.

I came, and I sat by you,
Ivory like the elephants tusks,
eyes blue, deep as the sea, you didn’t notice,
because you wouldn’t look at me.

I came, and I sat by you,
eyes brown like a pecan,
chocolate from head to toe.
Chocolate is sweet, but you wouldn’t know;
because you wouldn’t talk to me.

I came, and I sat by you,
brown like the sand,
hair black as coal, and flowing,
flowing, ever so long,
brilliant; as if buffed with Instant Shine.
You didn’t see how bright,
because of the black veil covering your heart.

I came, and I sat by you…
Lover of the world,
accepting whosoever.
Love, God.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
