Finally Over

Finally Over


When I lost you
I found myself
Oh but it hurt
It pained for so long
Thinking of how foolish I had been
To believe in you
But my hurt turned into poetry
And dance
And I wrote
And danced
Until I filled up the emptiness in side of me
The void that set inside my soul when you were no longer there
Poetry about you and for myself
Flowed from my fingertips like golden run at carnival time in Trinidad
I loved until I stopped hurting
And found not only myself
But someone to love me for real
And yes I admit there were times I wished that he were you
Until constant caresses and truthful signs
Showed me that true love accepts me for what I am
Oh yes
It is finally over
Real love has rescued my weary soul
And you are but a faded memory
Because I am no longer afraid to receive the love
That I have been given

(c) Toni Love

A look inside Toni’s Room – Harlem Event Photos

We’re shipping out more orders of autographed copies of “Toni’s Room” today! Thank you for your support!

I have to thank you once again for the love and support I was shown in New York City 2 weeks ago. I am still floating on that cloud and really received a wonderful response to sharing a look inside of my poetry book Toni’s Room. Everyone who attended said how inspired they were. There were tears and laughter and they loved being able to see the poetry come to life during my reading. Thanks again to the amazing Karen Smith, percussionist extraordinaire who accompanied me on my visit to Harlem. We had a great time and it was a fabulous homecoming for both. A donation was made to the Lung Cancer Foundation of America in memory of my mother Ethel Connor who transitioned from the disease. All purchases through the end of this month will contribute to another donation. 💙
