It Felt Love


How

Did the rose

Ever open its heart


And give to this world

All its

Beauty?


It felt the encouragement of light

Against its

Being,


Otherwise,

We all remain


Too


Frightened.

Beautiful as always.

And I don't mind at all:

Angelique Yasmin: When I was a teen ager I fell in love with a blond trashy heroine names Angelique, the series of books were Angelique and the King, Angelique and the ..., etc. Yasmin is my sister-in-law's name.

Nadalene Renee: Wahid names Nadalene after a girl who he like in grade school, her name was Nadene but so he named Nadalene; Nadalene. Renee is after me.

Nathan Nizam: Nathan is a name when I was reading the bible I liked from Nathaniel but did not like the name Nathaniel, so he is Nathan. Nizam is Wahid's real name.

Love to you.
