We Are Blessed 

​We Are Blessed 
When your feet touch the floor

And you’re wishing you had more

Remember those we’ve lost

Their pain; a very high cost

The battles in our lands

It’s really not so grand

The fires everywhere

People in despair 

Attacks on human life

Kidnappings of a wife

Children with no Christmas lights

Their eyes so full of fright

Get on your knees today

Give thanks then pray and pray.

Simple Definition of aromatic

  • : having a noticeable and pleasant smell




Every time he came near

His body fell to ground

He knew not what was going on

I had him on the train, Spellbound.


I purposely was seeking out

A man to be my life

I put a drop of scented smell

So he’d see me as  his wife.


Aromatic and skin so soft

He drank my soul with  eyes

He followed me and could not fight

And now I am his wife.
