It’s hard to reveal the real you to the public because it means that you may be opening yourself up to being judged for who you really are. But the late Reginald Sanders and his wife Minister Dawn Sanders didn’t mind revealing their love for one another.
Reginald Sanders passed away suddenly on June 9, 2011. And he will be missed by his family and friends.
I was shocked to hear the news of his death and decided to send Minister Dawn an e-mail expressing my condolences. But as I sat at my computer reflecting on the love that I saw between the two of them, I began to type the poem “Our Love Expressed Between You and Me” that I included in the condolence message that I e-mailed to her.
A few days later, Minister Dawn called and asked whether I would consent to have it printed in Brother Reginald’s homegoing program because she said the poem so vividly captured their relationship in ink. I was so honored and said yes.
Therefore, as I was updating “Reveal the Real You Poetry Collection,” that is available on www.amazon.com, I thought it only befitting to include “Our Love Expressed Between You and Me” poem because the Sanders revealed their real selves to everyone by the way they lovingly looked at each other, how they loved to sit together in church and hold hands. And the fire I saw in their eyes as they smiled at each other.
