Bernice A Brave Heart...


I would walk
you across the road
to get you home,
you were my intermission,
alcohol break from the
number 6 party zone.

Since my first book,
you would ask me,
when is your next,
cut out news paper
articles that would
inspire a future project.

Our conversation
would be about
my elevation
or the current situation,
we need not speak politics,
just survival tactics
for my children's generation.

you were a realist,
understood the London mist,
in London you will be missed,
nieces, nephews and my kids.

Giving heart,
every year a present,
something that suits
the individual,
I... a notepad to keep
my gift present and relevant;

One of my gift guards,
guard me when I feel down,
guard me against my doubt,
guard me from negative emotions,
guard me so I can finish this bout. 

My Scottish Seraphim,
You wanted to teach
me how to swim,
as you know water is my
weakness, but with you,
I would overcome as you
would make sure I win,
this year I am going to learn,
with you as my lungs,
in the ocean deep,
I will hear your voice deep,
motivating me from within.

Thank you form making me brave,
showing me my heart,
you were my earthly grandma,
speaking to you bettered
my speech art, 
i wish we got to speak
before you did depart,
to a greater destination,
you will be walking
the hills of heaven,
drinking from the purest springs,
with your ancestors,
building cathedrals,
murals and fine art,
art was your outlet on earth,
pottery was your craft.

You were part of a mini Mimi
band called Brighton bells,
folk singing,
busking drunken sound,
I remember going to Brighton,
chilling on the stones and shells,
leaving poetry on sand,
that's what I call sand script,
next time I will carve you a quote,
one part of my farewells.

Key words when I
think of you:
strength, because of your
continued length.
will, you kept going,
dare I say you were ill?
encouragement, for all
others poor judgement,
you made me feel abundant,
telling me,
"oh you will, you will"
and yes...
for you and Mimi...
I shall be triumphant.

Thank you for all
your belief,
from the heavens
you shall see me achieve,
my Scottish queen...
Rest In Peace.
