A: Maya Angelou In & Out of Time Poem

The sun has come.
The mist has gone.
We see in the distance...
our long way home.
I was always yours to have.
You were always mine.
We have loved each other in and out of time.
When the first stone looked up at the blazing sun
and the first tree struggled up from the forest floor
I had always loved you more.
You freed your braids...
gave your hair to the breeze.
It hummed like a hive of honey bees.
I reached in the mass for the sweet honey comb there....
Mmmm...God how I love your hair.
You saw me bludgeoned by circumstance.
Lost, injured, hurt by chance.
I screamed to the heavens....loudly screamed....
Trying to change our nightmares to dreams...
The sun has come.
The mist has gone.
We see in the distance our long way home.
I was always yours to have.
You were always mine.
We have loved each other in and out
in and out
in and out
of time.

Chorus:
Take my hand
And hold me close
And don't let me go.
You for me
And me for you
Together we'll make one

Verse 2.
We were once strangers 
All by ourselves
Living, living alone
With no one else
But here we are
And it's so, so sweet
God must have done this
Made you for me
And oh.

Chorus:
Take my hand
Hold me close
Don't let go.
You for me
Me for you
Together we'll make one.

Bridge:
We were always sleeping
On the first thing we've start
Dreaming, dreaming some love
Wondering where you are
How blessed I am
That I've found you
Now that you're here
I pray to say ?I do?
Oh.

and loved me even when I didn't love myself.
You held my hand in the darkness
and you pulled me out into the light.
I love you...
You are my light.
And it doesnt matter what happens 
in this life as long as you're with me.
When I look at you, I know that there's a God 
and that he loved me so much 
that he took the time to create you...just for me.
I love you....past my mind....beyond my heart....
I love you for my soul.
And that's the space where only you and God dwell.

You've struggle so 
In this world of sin

Burdens so heavy
Don't think that you can win

Buth then you feel
His presence surround you

You felt so alone,
Don't even know how He found you

But no you're leaning on his mighty arms
Depending on him to keep you safe from harm.

Hold On Just A Little While Longer 3x
Everything will be alright 2x

Into each life some rain must fall
But you've just got to believe
The Lord will always hear our call

This road of life is tilled with so much pain and strife
But I've got a savior who'll protect me day and night

So you can

Hold on just a little while longer 3x
Everything will be alright 2x

A: "Family reunions are about uniting the family, bringing together the young and old. Singing and dancing and thanking God, giving him the glory. Thanking him for getting us over. As we marched up the road this afternoon, what we saw were young men gambling, fighting, cussing. Women with no clothes on gyrating all over on this land. Do you see this shack. The man and woman we were born here gave birth to this generation. They were slaves. They worked this ground, but they bought it from the widow of the slave owner and that's the kind of blood we have running though our veins. That's the stock we are made of. What happened to us? What happened to us? Who are you? Do you know who you are? What happened to the pride and the dignity and the love and respect that we had for one another. Where did it go. And how, How do we get it back? I'ma tell you. Young Black men, take your place. We need you. Your sons and daughters need you. Did you understand what I just said. You were sold off and had no choice, yes but now it's time to stay. Take your place. Now. Starting now. Starting now. Young black women, you are more than your thighs and your hips. You are beautiful, strong, powerful. I want more from you. Take your place. I want every single one of you, young man, young woman, turn to the next person standing alongside of you. Grab them and hug them and tell them that you love 'em. Tell them, 'If you need anything, come to me.' 'If you need somebody to talk to, come to me.' 'I'll give you the shoulder, I'll give you the hug. I'll feed you, I'll clothe you if you need it. That's how you start from this moment. When you leave this reunion today, you take that with you.
