My Friend for a Lifetime

I have a friend
Sincere and radiantly lovely
Intelligent, greatly wise
With a great sense of humour
God’s gracious gift to me

I have a friend
Gentle and radiantly sweet
I am his beloved
Surely he is mine
God’s loving gift to me

I have a friend
My heart is safe with him
The true love of my life
For worse, for better or for best
God’s perfect gift to me

Dedicated to my beloved husband, my friend for a lifetime.

Two passengers,


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

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)

missing you…

came back home…walked into our room…it all reminded me of you…
your clothes…all ironed and hung up…ready to be worn…you are one neatness freak…my eyes caught your car racing books and stuff…neatly stacked on the table…the reminder note you made 3 weeks ago…still affixed on the wall with a magnet…even the bed, I made it exactly how you would normally do…
i sat down on our bed…thought of how so much of you have rubbed off on me…thought of your jokes and sweet cheekiness…you do have a good sense of humour…i always end up giggling and laughing all the time…
when will I see you again?…in two months time…but it feels like eternity…
a tear dropped down my cheek…missing you so much…
then the phone rang…it was you…my heart leaped with joy…
the sound of your voice at the end of the line…as we talked…as you made your silly jokes…your romantic whispers…having you so close now as i tried living in the moment…a healing elixir for my aching heart…

Try A Little Smile

Joke a bit
Frown a bit
Laugh a lot
Work a lot
Loose the seriousness
Gain some playfulness
Make many friends
Make few enemies
Someone said,
“Jolliness reduces wrinkles”
“Frowning increases wrinkles”
Another said,
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”
“All play and no work makes Jack a mere boy”
Well, I say,
“Try a little smile, it’s good for your soul”
“Try a little smile, it will make your day”
“Wherever you are, whatever you are doing”
“Loose the seriousness, try a little smile”

Daily Prompt: Seriousness

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
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.
