There is a bridge and a special bond we must crossover before we share
to support us with each others world
in times of loneliness and despair

Know that the beauty you hold inside lays waste when you do not give
a piece of yourself right back to me so that I myself may live

In the spirit of faith, hope and love
when honor is ripe and due
In the company of all my beautiful sisters I will always agree to bless you

I won’t give you a dirty look
backbite or roll my eyes
instead I’ll inspire a daughter of Zion to stand and be recognized

Then just around the corner
I know that I will find
in my sister’s beating heart
the meeting of like minds
