Me and Mine, a Love That Will Never Die

Lay down
Rest your eyes
Keep in mind you got one life
Take it easy
I know it’s not easy
As you close your eyes
You still can’t sleep at night
Anxiety has you tight
Remember the first time you found out that you were capable of producing life
You probably thought the time wasn’t right
The most high said otherwise
You survived, excited, anxious as to who you’d look like
And now this life which is your life
Relies on you to make it through even though hard times sometimes get a hold of you
Silent cries at night
Little one takes your hand and says
“Mama it will be alright”
Innocent voice
Innocent life
Should be the motivation to get you by
You have purpose
Those kids deserve
Your drive
For it’s your mission to give them a better life
Be wise when hard times arise
Think of them to get you by, the funny things they do out of the blue strangers often say “awww how cute”
Even those who haven’t yet produced life
Keep building so your empire is built right
Plan to prepare
Your future is bright
So promise me one thing
No more sleepless nights

Trying to figure out why things may not be going right

Dead beat baby father who promised to be by your side and in his childs life
You swallow your pride
With the reminder that you’ll always
have a reason to smile

After all they are the one that knows what your heartbeat feels like from the inside



You are the Dream

Stand tall

Stand strong

Stand and come together as one

You are

We are

So capable of dreaming into reality

With Big dreams and big things

It’s my time now

It’s takes






Otherwise it’s only a dream

Waiting to see it’s reality

Its purpose

You are


they say no

You say yes

Because He says yes

Who God bless no man can curse

You’ve been put on this earth

For a reason, and many seasons

To fulfill the seed that was once planted

Years a go

Now you’re the growth that society can’t wait to see

Remain to seek sunshine and water consistently

I promise you that’s all you’ll need

Strong mind

Positive mind

You control what you allow inside

You choose to have your problems arise or run towards it and have them fall one day at a time.

The wind is strong but the breeze of life is what satisfies us all.

It’s okay to crawl before we learn to walk

The beauty of it all we fail, we cry, to one day smile and shine

Then we wipe those tears and take away our fears to remind ourselves to live in the moment of time and not rewind, or change what was, but to make the best out of what is

and what’s to come


You’re a seed

Seeking growth

For that everyday we wake up a new life has begun to start over,

it’s not over

You have life, I won’t lie

it bites,

but as long as you’re still alive you still have time to shine.

So stop running, inhale, exhale take a breather relax

You’ll be just fine, continue to have faith in the most high.

You are the one that defines what lies behind that beautiful smile of many seasons in which wasn’t easy but you

Stand tall

Stand strong

Confident in which you are

The sky is not the limit, there’s so much more beyond it.

You are the dream

Say to yourself

“I am the dream”

No More Rain

The sun is out,

finally the sun is out.

This was beauty to my eyes

Its been a while since I’ve seen the clear blue skies

No more rain, no more dark clouds

For my sunshine has come, and there is no more rain in this cloud

I met you, a dream come true,

I’ve dreamed of you before

We spoke, we talked, we had deep conversation

You seduced me with your mind

It was knowledge to my eyes

You caught me by suprise

Let’s just do it, let’s fly alway

arrive in the tropics

Walk the beach until sunrise

Yell to the world, “you’re all mine

You do more than just make me smile

For my sunshine has come, and there is no more rain in this cloud

Love is life

Life is free

Take a ride of life with me

Free your mind

While with me

One day,

you will see…

Someone or Something is Missing

Tossing and turning

She’s yearning for the love she has not yet received

Loved by many

Blinded by the one that should love her the most

Something is not right

It’s something she can’t see in sight but a feeling she feels within her mind

She’s smiling backwards laughing inwards

She’s missing not someone, but something or could it be someone she’s known for many years, the thought of it just brings her to tears

Where did that person go, the love of her life no longer in sight

All those memories, she holds on tight

“Bring back that night where I fell in love for the first time”

She wants to rewind but realized with time you move forward not to go back but to create new memories with that someone you want back.

Not a lover, someone closer, someone’s who knows her best. She never once told a secret, she’s always kept it safe in a special place

The heart

A form of art that says more than what we see, hear or feel but a connection that only YOU yourself and one day your unborn child will understand this connection.

Now do you understand who she was missing all along?


There physically

Lost mentally.

But wait, there is a light that shines..

You’re special, keep smiling.

She’s found her again.

Floral Essence

She’s something like a flower
So delicate, beautiful, and at peace
as she walks the wind blows her beautiful curly hair with ease
She stands out like no other you’ve ever seen
something like a flower that when the wind blows
the flower manages to stay in place something like her
she holds her own when the breeze is strong
That doesn’t mean she doesn’t need love from the sun above
It gives her light, to grow just like him the “sun” in her life
Out of all the flowers in the garden he managed to pick her up
and give her more life.
He continued to water her and witness this beautiful creation from the most high
He will not let her die or dry up from thirst, he’ll never leave her empty from love, his job is to fill her up pour out his heart like water from a flower pot, non stop
Watch her grow, each day he captures something new
Too soon?
Right on time, “I can’t lie this connection is deep just flower, sun, and water is all she needs
you, me and love to feel complete

she’s awake because this dream is reality all the pretty flowers in the garden yet he fell in love with she,

Started off as a seed now he gets to witness the
Floral essence of she, where she now feels free.

Things That Remain Unsaid

Late night phone conversations

Silent pauses don’t keep me waiting

I’m falling into a deep sleep

Then you speak and say that you heard the words of me saying “I love you”

I quickly responded

“I didn’t say that out loud”

Now you’re in my head? because in reality those are the words I said..

My heart dropped

*deep breath*

I’ll admit

It’s you that I want

I got you, I love you

And I mean that from the bottom of my heart

Those words are hard to come out

Maybe I’m scared, so I should say I’m scared but you say, “Have no fear my dear I won’t leave you alone wherever you go I’ll go.”

His words not mine

You know how I feel which it is real

The time has come to recognize the truth the truth that I love you 

I give thanks to my maker for you my dear.

Just a snippet of what he’s said to reassure me that this love is safe.

More things left unsaid that I’ve said in my head but to shy to tell you my true feelings that I feel in my heart

as write I feel warm inside

You give me butterflies 🦋

I pray this love never dies

For its you I hope to spend the rest of my life with..


Living through someone else’s dreams

Just to see them happy,

Slowly drowning in silence

A battle between herself and fear

She’s always wanted the best for the ones whom she loved

She realized you could want the best for them but in the process she needs to toughen up

Let them know that she supports your dream, but her dream isn’t your dream although there are similarities

She shows consistency in ways that many people are too blind to see, who are they to judge?

She does it for she

Not to please or have anyone doubt her dream

Tough love is LOVE, but she knows the difference when someone is being rough

She would never try to sabotage someones dream especially if she too has a dream that she’s in the process to achieve

She thought they were on the same page but when things went left, she got slapped in the face

She became vulnerable at a time where she needed space and that one person closes to her didn’t understand nor didn’t care to ask if everything was okay

She didn’t care for sympathy,  or follow up to say how is everything going but instead tell her everything she was doing wrong instead of making things right,

You see she knows when to admits her wrongs but at this time she sees no fault perhaps that person was too caught up, too blinded to ask her what’s wrong

this experience showed her clarity of reality that no one is going care for you more than YOU care for you.

What sets us up most in life is expectations of when you go through a rough time we expect our friends to be there like you did for them

She realized that in the past when a friend was in need she didn’t do it because she would want to expect the same in return but because she actually cared and hate to see her friend stressed and hurt

She tells herself  “People wonder why I don’t talk or express as much as I use to, because in the end of it all no one is going to care but you.”

She’s content that everything happens for a reason

Everyone has their season

In this case what we needed was clarification, and communication

Now she leaves it up to God, in which she knows he does no wrong.


Visuals Come to Life

There was a time in her  life where she would visualize about the perfect guy

She realized when she opened her eyes, she had him in mind.

He was right there all along, they started off as friends and became something more

“You’re too much” is what she would say, his response would be “I’m more than enough”

Which is true she feels God has blessed her with him,  she feels this is true.

He knows how to make her smile, at times when she feels blue most of the time he has no clue

He came at the right time, when everything in her life seemed lost, she felt lost, she was lost,

In need of clarity, at times she would tell him “she’s not ready” to take it to the next level of what they could be

But he believed in her,  he was patient and still is, that means more than words can speak…. the world to her

Often times she doesn’t speak but he seems to understand her,  She speaks with action and emotion

This love language of hers is something special and quite hard to define.

End result of all this “you’re officially mine and I’m officially yours.”

Last night he expressed a meaningful word that she will keep close to her heart, for he brought her visuals to life.



Flashing Lights 💫

To love me is to know me
This is for you, my love my number one
Never have I ever had someone to miss
Never have I ever had someone to kiss
Never have I ever drove 12 hours just to see you smile from ear to ear
Did you notice me?
Little me
Staring at you on that stage while the crowd engages to the melody of those hands that work magic when played on your favourite instrument
To them I’m “just another face in the crowd”
To you I’m your superstar, I wear the crown I’m whom you call your queen
You say my demeanor is mean
And I’m something special like no other woman you’ve ever seen
My lady friends always saw what I was blinded to
I truly believed you were just a friend, but our bond is like no other how did we pretend that we wanted to be more than just friends.
Never have I ever wrote a poem so warm
I want to show you off and let the whole world know
That I am blessed the day that I’ve found you, a dream come true
revealed in a way I never imagined
Is this life?
I’m no baby anymore
I met you when I was “young”
I’ve grown
You’ve grown, apart from me for quite some time
Two years later and no need to rewind but press play because we’ve been put on pause for too long.
Will you be?
I see its time for you to focus on you and perhaps focus on me
No more living behind the scenes
your future is brighter than it seems flashing lights is all I see
Off tour you had a long run
But did it take you that long to realize
That I am the one?



You Are Not Alone

You are not alone
For every battle you go through
I want you to smile through the pain
Because this “pain” is preparing you for what you’re about to gain
I know it feels as if you are about to go insane
Hang in there I promise you the chains are about to break.
No one but you knows what you’re going through
Because what makes us different is the story of our lives
That only you can one day tell
The struggle is the most beautiful part think of it as a beautiful work of art
Which YOU are
Limited edition
You are destined for greatness
You have purpose
I promise
You are WORTH IT
To those silent cries you once cried
You can now wipe those tears and
Accept that everything will be alright
Because you are not alone
Same pain with different stories being told
You are loved
You are valued
You are beautiful

Keep smiling because a smile attracts good people without words
Positive life full of positive vibes
Everything will be alright.
I care
We care
With love,

Crystal Bri.
