Wilfred Mellers Poems
I Also Rise (Homage to Maya Angelou)
I have been used, abused, mistreated, and even overheated, but still I also rise I have been denied, compromised, and even ostracized, but yet I still also rise I have been called outdated, jaded, and mutilated, but here I still also rise
For this I know, it was not so long ago I met a captivating butterfly On its journey by and by perched this butterfly on my windowsill Beautiful the butterfly to my eye brought a tear I dry Every waking moment I tried to spend with my friend the butterfly for which I had fallen
How I love your Voice
How I love to hear you speak and call my name The way your lips, tongue, and mouth forms letters and words Those sensual overtones that utter sweet sounds that resonate in my ears How I love to hear you speak
dream of a better world where as people would see each other nothing more than people of a different shade of gray I dream of all my problems crumbling in my hands never to utter another sound I dream of love renewed no more forsaken the day of my fulfillment I dream of blues skies and flowers lying in a field of hope and no more despair
What is a Friend?
True friends will never let each other down True friends will tell each other when they are right or wrong True friends listen to their problems without casting judgment True friends are never afraid to tell you like it is

My Sexy Valentine “If I wrote something naughty for Valentine would you mind? ” Written by: Wilfred Charles Mellers Thursday, February 13,2014
As I gaze deeply into your eyes I cry Your eyes so stunning for those I would die Just a simple look back would send me heaven bound Words need not be said nor the utterance of any sound
I WANT TO SLEEP
My covers and I fight all night I’m not sleeping well can’t you tell My restless mind can’t unwind Eyes are stubborn so I toss and turn

A Rising Star
A rising star’s light has been distinguished in the heavens today. Twenty-seven years the light shined on the world. Two months you knew yet it could not be helped. A swift wind blew the light from your candle. No more its beauty will gleam amongst the heavenly bodies. So short-lived this soul gone but never will be forgotten. Taken from us this day on your journey to the ever after. You have gone to be with our ancestors. May they embrace you in their loving arms and welcome you.
