Message To My Brother

You never said I’m leaving

You never said good- bye

You were gone before I knew it

And God only knows why 

Your Loving Sister Rhonda (Bonnie Love)

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference”. Rest in Peace my Brother.

Rev. Tina Muhammad
