On a sunny, summer evening, in a church filled with laughter and love, I was able to witness the saying, "Love Conquers All." I haven't had many opportunities in my life to see what unconditional love looks like. But in that church, on that evening, while this couple was being born into something new; my heart began remember a familiar song.
The doors of the church opened and we awaited the bride to walk down the aisle. A ballad rendition of Stevie Wonder's, "As," was being sung in a duet and there wasn't a dry eye in the building. In that moment, the universe affirmed...Black Love is real, Black love heals, Black love is revolutionary.
"Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky...."
"Until the ocean covers every mountain high..."
"Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea..."
"Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream..."
"Until the day is night and night becomes a day..."
"Until the trees and seas just up and fly away..."
"I'll be loving you...always"
