i turned to her on my walk today.
will you love me, today?
will you just hold me and love me
sometimes i try so hard....
and sometimes i forget so much.
and today....i really could just use
your loving me.
i pictured her coming up to me and
brushing my hair. and playing with it
with braids and such.
i touched my hair with my fingers as
tears ran down my face.
and i opened to my own value.
