Transcript of Love in If Beale Street Could Talk, by James Baldwin

Love in If Beale Street could talk Fatherly Love
"He kisses my tears,get that baby here, safe and sound. We'll get Fonny out of jail. I promise. Do you promise? (page,161) I sat here and
watched you grow up
from screaming and
crying and icky throw up

I've watched you
go out on your first date
And scold you and that boy
when he brought you back to late

You are my one
and only little princess
Even when you started
to get mixed up in alot of mess

Even though you are grown
up now, and I can't make you stay
In my heart is where the
picture of you and I will lay Boy friend- Girl friend Love
" I want you to marry me,' he said. I must have looked surprised, for he said, thats right. I'm your's and you're mine, and thats it, baby." (page 76) Your the vision that make me
see the world...
when i see your hands im gonna hold....
your the moon, the stars, and the sun
with out u my life is done. Sisterly Love
"You just cursed the child in my sister's womb. Don't you ever let me see you again, you broke down half-white brife of Christ!" (page 74) Grab my hand
and I'll show you the ropes
I'll show you how to suceed
adn fill you with hope

I'll teach you right
from wrong
In hopes that your stay
on earth may be long

I'll help you in
any way
by your side is where I'll stay

I'll help pick you up
when you fall down
Give you laughs
to chase away your frowns

You are my sister
amd I am yours
We'll have a love that
will continually pour Motherly Love
"Now listen,' she said ' you got enough on your mind without worrying about being a bad girl and all that jive-ass shit. I sure hoped I reaised you better than that" What is the definition of Love? According to the dictionary
love is an intense feeling of deep affection,
but what is the people definition for love? Dipa Shah, 9th grade,
English teacher thinks
that love is: "Love is feeling
secure and confident with yourself
so you can be the best YOU for someone else" Shakil Gofur, fellow 9th grader
thinks that love "is to adore someone with all
your heart ,and to be their for them when ever
they need you." If I could steal one final glance
One final step, one final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
‘Cause I’d love, love, love to dance with my father
-Dance With My Father by Luther Vandross I'll always love my mama
She's my favourite girl
I'll always love my mama
She brought me in this world
-I'll Alway's Love My Mama by the Intruders Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that's all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there
I'll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name and I'll be there
-I'll Be There By The Jackson 5 I need you in my life, yeah all day everyday I need ya
And every time I see ya my feelings get deeper
I miss ya, I miss ya, I really wanna kiss you but I can't
Six, seven, eight, triple nine, eight, two, one, two
-Kiss Me Thru The Phone by Soul Ja Boy Tellem ft Sammie Zipporah Genyard (one of the creaters) thinks that love is "I think that Love is Something you need to get through life, inorder to survive everyday." Acillia Jillabrand (one of the creators) thinks that Love is:"Love is the key to happiness and the door
to satisfactory" there are times when a mothers love can understand our tears
our fear,our disappointments, mostly every feeling,

a mothers love is joy ,
its something we dream about,
we care about
and something u should always keep in mind

a mothers love is hard to be forgotten ,
a mothers love is all that should be wanted! ByAcillia

no copyright infringement please(-.-) I walked in the dark,
i walked in the rain,
i walked between life and death,
all alone...
but the day i was held by ur hand and..
lead by ur way,was the day
my life brightened up! Her eyes are the
gateway to her soul
Chocolate vreamy brown oceans

Her hair twists and
turns trailing down
her back in a waterfall of brown

She walks with a confidence
a certain swag in her step
Like she only gotta worry bout
herself the baby and me

Does she notice
all the cat calls and how you doin?
Of course as humble as can be

To give her my name
would be the sweetest present for she is my

She's all a women can be and so much more she is the sun my world orbits around it was a feeling i never felt before
a feeling that gave me the chills
and made me shiver from the inside
a feeling that i wished last longer or forever
it was the warmth of ur hugs , the feelings at being in ur arms Chocolate kisses
wrapped up in Foil
To you my dear
I'll remain loyal

Chocolate coverd in
caramel bliss
The sweetest
type of kiss

Dark chocolate
kiss so bitter sweet
Makes me wanna announce
my love in the street

Cookies and deliscious
milky creme
Make your eyes
sparkle and gleam

Your my sweet
chocolate kiss
the only girl
I'd ever miss
even when
your away
In my heart is
where you will stay
