You, you, you, you

How could I have met her?
How could I have met you?
Or you me? Me you?
From so far a distance,
North Carolina, El Salvador
Only through the web
Never having been there, or you here
Never having before met you, or seen you, or heard of you,
or prepared to meet you, but by learning Spanish
in grade school, on to the university
No introduction, no friends to guide us to one another in our journey
But The Great Spirit, Himself
Never have ever before been online searching me, to have found you
A woman so loving, a woman so tender,
so caring, so funny, a love so true
A true miracle, I found you and you me
With such a sweet beautiful voice you sing

Carolina

In all of Latin America
How did I find you?
First time on the web you, you at work
A question, me to answer,
with me, you don't need your legs to spread

One acre of land I'll give
In this game of hearts searching
the true webmaster truly had a hand to play
The greatest webmaster of all
The Creator, Wakanda, Mysterious Great, Wakan-Tanka, Usen
or as you may know Him, JC, Yeshua, Jehova
you see .?.?.?.?.,

Named after my home state of North Carolina
where.., here astonished, you still are today,
"you seem popular", you say. "For you, something special
fresh unbeknownst before", that here
where everyone wears "Carolina" tee & sweat shirts,
jackets, jerseys, jump suits and shorts

so witty, so adorable,
so funny, so new
so tender, so caring
so loving, so compassionate, so true

With one artful paint stroke
the art stroke of God
like the mountains, the oceans, the hawk & the crow
The Great Spirit heard me, this I know
Our Creator, Wakanda, JC
helped me find you

I am forever grateful
with you I share

one chance, first choice, one try
@ a web forum
your question, I answer'd
you responded. How could it be true?
We'd keep talking?
Skype, telephone, 2 years "platica", speaking, seeing
One weekend marry, October 17, 2009
Upon me, The Great Spirit, one of my greatest blessings bestowed
My greatest, life itself, and my niece...

One of 4 Greatest Blessings upon me I know
My precious niece, this world to have come
Another my wonderful god-daughter,
rejuvenation of native bloodlines in my family
...And another, life...
My wife, to have married her, a great blessing, I know
Answer to a prayer @ age 13,
my life to be known, with you I share

From so far a distance, El Salvador,
Never having known her,
Never having met you
The Lord kept me for her,
and her for me
born May 13, 1976
and me, April 6, 1965

Two people so near in heart
Yet so far away by land
North Carolina, El Salvador, "The Savior" - "name of a country"
Only through help of Marie Carmen,
could support papers be signed
A new life to begin, in North Carolina
husband & wife, me & you, immense love for both
to the ongoing, everlasting length of time

from the gran' ole state of North Carolina,
Wakanda, JC, Our Savior, The Creator, Usen,
Age 13, He had heard my heart's felt cry
and outstretched to her heart's love beckoning plea to me
on a forum, when I was ready, one bright shiny day, 2007'
A hand outstretched from The Great Spirit that day, from
Himself helped me find you, and you me

born May 13, 1976
and me, April 6, 1965

For this I am grateful, and always true
My baptismal name He gave me, age 18, 1983'
conquering all wrong in my heart
He gave me peace, forgiveness, love, so much more
I love Him, I love her, I love them,
life's sweetness & so much more

The artful paint stroke of Mysterious Great
Brought us together, husband & wife,
niece & god-daughter,
immense love, to the ongoing, everlasting length of time

Salvadorian Mayan wife born May 13, 1976
Chibcha Colombian niece, May 25, 2001
Mayan Salvadorian god-daughter, ****
and me, Chele Mestizo,
called "Cipote Colocho", The Curly Kid, by Salvadorian family
born April 6, 1965

The artful paint stroke of Mysterious Great
Answered my prayer, age 13
Brought us together, husband & wife
immense love, both for the other,
husband & wife, and always will be a'new
to the beginning, ongoing, everlasting length of time

Me for you, you for me, husband & wife
It's true..., that when couples love God first
They love each other better .!.!.!.!.

You, you, you, you

like the mountains, the oceans, the hawk & the crow
The Great Spirit heard me, this I know

How could I have found you?
How could you have found me?
El Salvador, North Carolina
Only through the web

A true secret of Wakan-Tanka,
in the great scheme of things
The Great Mystery, Mysterious Great
JC, Wakanda, Our Creator, Father Sky, The Great Spirit
Names matter not to me or to you, Granfather
It doesn't matter what you call God,
as long as you forgive,
or ask The Creator to forgive
when you cannot

For I am a true Christian
In the Creator I do believe,
call Him JC, if you like
For The Great Spirit
He heard me that day, age 13
age 18, gave me a name of honor
when I learned to forgive, and therefore was forgiven
Thus I vowed always return honor to Him
all the days of my life
"yellowmoon", my baptismal name
given to me 2 weeks B4, baptized
@ Cedar Fork Baptist, age 18

That same year "Crow Nation" was written
The best & 1st poem ever I wrote
with help of The Creator, call Him Wakanda, Father Sky, Granfather
Wakan-Tanka, Mysterious Great, The Great Spirit, Usen or JC,
if you like, names matter not to me
It doesn't matter what you call God,
The Creator And Ruler Of All,
as long as you forgive,
or ask The Creator to forgive
when you cannot,
though sometimes maybe you can't

You, you, you, you

So tender, so righteous,
so funny, so caring,
so intelligent, so true,
so loving, so affectionate,
so witty, so adorable,
so caring, so new
so compassionate, so funny, so few
With such a sweet beautiful voice you sing

like the mountains, the oceans, the hawk & the crow
The Great Spirit heard me, this I know

In all of Latin America
How did I find you?
One question, one answer, one telephone call, then skype
That was all

Never no online searching,
no online dating,
no online searching
not at all, never

just one heartfelt question, 2007', one answer'd call
my heart's plea 78', age 13,
her heart's plea, 2009'
platicando through skype, we began to speak, 2007'

In all of Latin America
How did I find you?

With one artful paint stroke
Help from The Great Spirit, Our Creator, Wakanda, JC
Love.., we found each other
In earth's short walk journey?
Walk in beauty

So much in love with, you are with me
and I am with you
How could it be?
How could it be so?

That I'd find you
How could it be true?
And you me?
In earth's short walk journey?
We walk in beauty

With one artful paint stroke
The Great Spirit, Our Creator, Wakanda,
Wakan-Tanka, MysteriousGreat, Usen,
Father Sky, The Great Webmaster War & Peace Chief In The Sky, The Great Spirit, JC, Granfather
helped me find you
In earth's short walk journey
to the beginning, ongoing, everlasting length of time

one chance, first choice, one try
@ a forum, on the web
your question, I answer'd
you responded, how could it be true?

That the one woman @ age 13, I'd prayed for, 1978'
Would this day be true, 2009'
How can it be so?
Carolina,

You, you, you, you

my love, you love me & I love you so
this earth's short walk journey, to eternity

You, you, you, you

The Creator, The Grand Webmaster, presented her to me
And.., what am I, but a wasp?, attracted to honeysuckles
caught in a web of life's love, sweetness, creation & eternity
And for this I am grateful
His servant, 'ever trying to bring Him much honor,
to JC, Jesús Cristo, as I promised Him I would do,
when a name of honor, He gave to me, "yellowmoon"
And even if in doing His will, I makes errors
I am saved; I am a Christian.
And.., for this, I am grateful

It doesn't matter what you call God,
as long as you forgive,
or ask The Creator to forgive
when you cannot,
though sometimes maybe you can't

You, you, you, you
