Poem: This Time 2021

This time—my Love: I won’t walk away—only,

If you promise, keep your word, respect,

Honor, don’t lay a hand,

Protect, nor manipulate, violate,

The sacredness of my body—Soul:

And that you will keep joy in my heart,

A smile in my eyes, stay to uplift,

The very part, essence, of you and I,

So that, we can create, a far better,

Compassionate and magnificent race.
