In and Out of Time ~ Maya Angelou

The sun has come.
The mist has gone.
We see in the distance…
our long way home.
I was always yours to have.
You were always mine.

We have loved each other in and out of time.

When the first stone looked up at the blazing sun
and the first tree struggled up from the forest floor
I had always loved you more.
You freed your braids…
gave your hair to the breeze.
It hummed like a hive of honey bees.
I reached in the mass for the sweet honey comb there….
Mmmm…God how I love your hair.

You saw me bludgeoned by circumstance.
Lost, injured, hurt by chance.
I screamed to the heavens….loudly screamed….
Trying to change our nightmares into dreams…

The sun has come.
The mist has gone.
We see in the distance our long way home.
I was always yours to have.
You were always mine.
We have loved each other in and out
in and out
in and out
of time.

    • Thanks for stopping by! You’re always welcome. :)
      I was watching a movie the other day, (I forgot the name of it) but Maya Angelou was reading this poem for a wedding. I just sat there in awe. I had to find it and post it after that.

      • The name of the movie was Madea’s Family Reunion. I watched it last night and that’s why I looked it up this morning.
