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’m Here, Dear

6E2DEF6A-1008-4575-92F7-776F62EF8B23

Sometimes I don’t know what to say
Sometimes I don’t understand half of what you’re saying
But I can listen,
I can nod
I can add some positive monosyllables
I can maintain eye contact and somewhat engage
I can make myself available
To be here for you
To be a friend and to stay friendly

Untamed Fear, Tamed

55FAB1BA-826D-4E75-875A-35AD79DD3C9A

You split the sea so I could walk right through it
You bound my fear in perfect love
You rescued me so I could shout and sing
“I am a child of God!”
(Jonathan David & Melissa Helser)

My untamed fear
Unravelled without boundaries
My broken heart
Unmended like the broken hinges of a wooden door
Your hands, like branches of an olive tree
Carries me away from the splinters that pierced within
Your love, like rivers of Arizona
Washes away the fear that breeds unbelief

I am healed
I am loved
I am not afraid
I am a child of God

Best Friends Forever

B4B5E3C4-DC1A-4F08-ACC4-36B1B3F38691

Friendship is love
Love is friendship,
For great friends love you
Just the way you are
Without giving up on you,
And the power of our love
Makes us best friends forever

“There are “friends?”, there are acquaintances, there are buddies, etc.; but, there is a friend that is always closer, nearer and greatly available more than a brother.”

No Love Lost Between Us

6431DBDE-E894-4AC4-AF2D-ECFF617F6AFD

Like unkept scanty gardens
Neglect killed our friendship
Like unkept broken promises
Lust ruined our trust

“Every friendship needs care, laughter and attention from both sides to thrive. One-sided friendship can only last for a while.”

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.

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

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.

Letter To My Best Friend

Dear Grace .O.,

We were like two peas in a pod
We liked the same things, we were inseparable
We laughed and joked together a lot
We had little fights but made up quickly
So many sleep overs in each other’s house
We talked or rather you talked a lot
I listened, laughed and talked less
No wonder I became a writer,
We knew a lot about each other
No privacy, no secrets, no grudges
Your family became my family, and mine yours
In the same law class, we studied together
In the same course, we graduated together
In the same fellowship, we prayed together
In the same leadership group, we led together
In the same age group, we had a lot in common
Both tall, both fair, both beautiful, both intelligent
You had a good sense of humour, I had a good listening ear
Our friendship was lovely, fun, sacrificial and generous
But,
University days ended, law school ended,
We got married, had family and distance prevailed
Several hours on the phone is incomparable
To sitting in our rooms and chatting into the midnight
We travelled, we gossiped, we compared and had boy crushes
How I miss those days of youthful freedom and exuberance
My friendship with you was one of my best moments in school.

Yours affectionately,
Obioma. I.
