The Magic

by Mesha B.

He made the magic
And the magic made me
Made me smile a brighter smile
Bare my shoulders in the summer sun
Toss my hair amongst the breeze
Made me dance barefoot on an unmowed lawn
Feverish with a passion I had never known
Moving with my grandmother's hips
My mother's sturdy legs
My own newly discovered strength

The magic made me sing from my soul
Songs my ears had never heard
Songs my lips had never uttered
Love songs of perfect people in perfect situations
Notes that made my heart cry out with joy
Made me want to run to him
Cling to him
Wrap my arms around the neck of my creator
He made the magic
And the magic made me
