“Face to Face” by Shequita Johnson


As the sunlight penetrates through the drapes of the bedroom window,
I’m awakened by its’ gentle nudge across my eyelids,
Softly caressing the side of my belly, thoughts of you rest against the pillow….
The time is near and soon your precious face will shine upon the earth….
A most valuable gift from God, my very own angel sent from above…..
Escorted by the wings of love from the Most High…
Delivered in His is presence will be a soul as pure as a dove……….
Within a few days you will arrive…….
Welcomed in an embrace by motherly love…….
And calmed by the peace radiating through the gentle stare of my eyes…..
Joy vibrates through my heart and out of my soul trumpets an echo of cries…
Our bond is strengthened as I feel you gently shift within….
Anticipation reveals the image of you snuggled against my chest……
And the breath of your life sailing across my skin….
There’s a love that consumes every crevice of my heart as I cradle you around your waist….
For the hour is approaching my angel, my darling, my heart ……
And soon ……..we will be face to face…….
