I Have A Friend

Oh the beauties
Of pure love and great friendship
When freedom prevailed
And liberty leapt with joy
When words poured seamlessly
And mute was an ancient call
When laughter roared to the skies
As friends reminisced with joy

A good friend is like sweet medicine
Like a fresh daffodil on a Spring morning
Like a cool shade from a gusty breeze
Like a frozen ice cream on a hot Sunday
A gentle smile, a warm hug, hope triumphed

Fights & forgiveness
Cries & joys
Sacrifice, fellowship, love;
A good heart that loves to the end
That’s what makes a good friend great

I’ve Got A Friend… In You?

A good friend shows you where to buy pizza
A great friend teaches you how to make pizza
A best friend patiently makes the pizza with you

The journeys of life are more pleasant and memorable when we have someone to walk through those journeys with us.

See How Far We’ve Come

AE01BB6C-D316-47B0-9203-76ECACC82DA3

See how far we’ve come,
You were my first crush,
I was your first love.

Silver, gold or
Treasures, I want not,
Though days be cold
Or nights very hot
With you by my side
Now and always, my friend,
I will tackle on life
I will be brave to the end.

See how years have gone past,
I am your love heart,
You are my sweetheart.

Beautiful Day

IMG_2777

This beautiful day,
Even more beautiful,
This bride, my wife,
Refreshing, this day,
Even more refreshing
The downpours, this rain,
Sending showers of blessings,
Sealing our day
With overflowing abundance
Of fresh scented love,
Marital fulfilment,
And unspeakable joy;
We found each other,
We found love;

And, the bridegroom
Smiles from his heart,
Looks towards the heavens,
As it rains its tender drops,
He smiles again,
Knowing he has found his soul mate,
His sweet gentle soul mate,
On this beautiful day.

To be married is not a willy-nilly decision made on the whims of emotions. It’s a decision which should be made on the bedrocks of unflinching commitment, unconditional love and unreserved friendship.

Daily Prompt: Willy-nilly

Two passengers,

img_1459

One life,
Two passengers,
The man, the woman,
Many adventures,
Forever together.

Precipitous hills,
Rocky valleys,
Perilous seas,
Peaceful shores,
Pains, joys,
Cries, laughter,
What a journey!

My best friend,
My companion,
United in heart,
United through God,
Marriage truly is
A blessed gift
From God to man

Daily Prompt: Passenger

Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-11)

Tender Drizzles

Soft tender whispers
Your words
They seep into my heart
I listen
Beautiful, delicious
Like the honeycomb
Sets me at ease
A cosy hug, we share
None willing to untangle
Silence
Sweet silence
An eternal cuddle
It seems
Your cheek
Brushes against mine
Caressing faces
Touching noses
Soft strokes
Your hands
Through my hair
A delicate peck
Your lips
On my forehead
I bask in this aura, of love
Feelings, like butterflies
Dancing, fluttering
Inside while we sit
In silence
No words
No actions
Just us and
The ticking clock
Such precious moments
Time, rolling by
Endlessly, it seems
Golden radiance
Heaven’s rays of love
Beaming through
On a summer morning
The day beckons
Slowly, reluctantly
Unwilling, to begin the day
Yet, we rise
But, with joy, a smile
And a mutual, eternal love
For each other
Though apart on sight
Entwined, inseparable
One heart, one soul
We are

Daily Prompt: Tender

Poet’s Notes:
A love poem I wrote in honour of my 10 years marriage anniversary with my husband this June.

Hello Beautiful

Hello beautiful,
Looking at you
I find sweetness
Into your heart
I descend deeper
I find beauty
Knowing you
A treasure

Daily Prompt: Descend

See also Beautiful Soul

Author’s notes:
There is hidden beauty in everything and everyone we see. We just have to search it out if we want to find it. Also, if you see beauty and sweetness in your dreams and aspirations, you will descend to any level of hard work and dogged determination to work it out and fulfil it.
When you find beauty in whatever you do, work becomes play.

The Control Key (ctrl +)

IMG_2299

Some days I feel very brave and confident with myself.
Some days I feel like I can tackle life without anybody’s help.
Some days I feel like I don’t need You, Lord.

But,
I end up with errors, mistakes, mishaps.
I end up stepping on toes and hurting those I care for.
I end up confused; pondering and wondering what went wrong.

I fail to realise that I cannot do it all by myself.
I fail to realise that like the control key on a keyboard that needs a C, V, or X to complete the functions of copy, paste or cut;
I need people to fulfil my purpose on earth, and
I need You Lord to live the life I was called to live.

I’m not an island, no man is.
We all need each other to reach our goals.
We all need our different communities to execute and implement our specific life functions and assignments.

No wonder You have Your family too-
The Trinity- The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
No wonder You “set the solitary in families”.**

Because we need each other, and
Because we need You.

“In computing, a Control key is a modifier key which, when pressed in conjunction with another key, performs a special operation (for example, Ctrl + C ); similar to the Shift key, the Control key rarely performs any function when pressed by itself.“- Wikipedia

**Psalms 68:6

When Love Waits

IMG_2088

Sitting here with him
In silence
Wrapped in his arms
She’s safe
He looked at her
And smiled
She looked at him
And blushed
No words exchanged
In silence
No need for words
Soul mates
They understood each other
One heart
Their hearts were one
One soul
Their souls were one
But
Their bodies
Inflamed with romantic desires
and lustful ecstasy
Would soon be in one
A few days
After their marriage vows
Such decision
Not for luck nor for fame
A noble act
In honour of their promise
To wait
To wait for the right time
A noble act
To honour their love for each other
To honour God

Daily Prompt: Luck, Lust

22nd October, 1994

When the organist played, he turned around with the congregation… and there she was walking down the aisle. Walking towards him, with the most gorgeous smile he had ever seen.

She looked stunning in her immaculate wedding gown, while golden sun rays peeping through the church window formed halo around her. Her face was radiant and fair like a glittering star, her eyes stared gently and lovingly at me like a gazelle, her beauty dazzled my senses like a fine exquisite work of art. What an angelic vision!
And, the sweet thought that Alice, his southern belle, would soon be his wife, was an excitement he barely contained that day.

It’s been over 22 years…. from the day I proposed, but, that day is still as vivid to him as if it was yesterday. That day… 22/10/94

Daily Prompt: Vivid

Little Things…

Like the little frosty flakes of snow ❄️❄️
Falling helplessly from above
I fall into your arms
Helplessly, hopelessly in love

Like the little sparkly stars up high ✨
Shining, glowing in the dark
I glitter and glow
When you look into my eyes

Like the little torrential drops of rain 💦
Drizzling and drenching the earth
I am fully immersed
Drowning in your loving rein

Daily Prompt: Lovingly, Glitter

From Romeo to Juliette

Dear Juliette,

Speak to me and let me listen, in words and ways I can understand
Share your heart with me and let me into your world
Each time I try getting closer, I see the walls you built around you
The hurts of the past are so evident in your eyes
Your feet have lost their majestic gaits
You don’t love anymore, you don’t trust anymore
Love is not enough you say
But my love will be more than enough you’ll see
My love will intoxicate you and kiss away your pains
I want to understand your heart, your mind, your soul
What makes you smile and that I’ll do everyday
What makes you sad and that I’ll surely avoid
What motivates you and I’ll take you there
What hinders you and I’ll shield you from it
Where are you from? I’ll respect your past
Where are you going? We shall face the future together
Hand in hand we shall ride the storm together
And sit on the sunny beach together as one happy couple
Hand in hand for I will not let go of your hand
If only you will let me into your world
If only you will let me understand you

In anticipation I await your response,
Your Romeo.

Daily Prompt: Understanding, Companion, Storm

Summer!

Summer!
The word summer comes with mixed feelings to her.
Sunny days,bright blue skies, flip flops, holidays at the beach side, bright coloured dresses, short skirts, sun hats, sun glasses, barbecues, parties, friends… Happy days!
But…another word for summer to her is a dreaded ailment.
Hay fever!
Constant sneezing, blocked nostrils, headaches, itchy watery eyes, tissues all over her bag, sleepless nights, drowsy days… Not so happy days!
Hence, for this purpose, her constant companion is her antihistamine tablets. It took her a while to find the right tablet that works for her; and when she discovered it, she stocked up as much as she could.
Now she can go out with her buddies and just enjoy summer, just like everybody else.

In response to the daily prompt: Purpose, Sky, Companion, Summer
