Love Is You And Me

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

Spin a perfect love story
Spice it with thrills and frills
Add some touching embellishments
Remember to make room
For the realities of life

Make perfect your love plans
In the curves and turns
Of Love’s treasured lines
Remember to connect
With the real human in you

Love exists not in a vacuum
Love lives not in the air
Love glides not in realms of nothingness
Love is you and me
May I be the love I want see in others

Jesus- Our Best Buddy Ever!

What a friend we have in Jesus! All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer.
Oh, what peace we often forfeit! Oh, what needless pain we bear!
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Hymn by Joseph M. Scriven

When we think of all the challenges life throws our ways;
When sickness ravages the body that the doctors and physicians are confused;
When the death of a loved one leaves us vulnerable and burdened with pain;
When despite our faith and unending prayers, the matter seems to persist;
When debts and financial crisis attempts to steal our joy;
When at the crossroads of life’s decisions we don’t know what to do;
When we are all alone struggling to keep up and there’s no one who understands; When war and terrorism attempts to bind us with fear;
When the hurt of the past stops us from moving forward;
When life comes to a halt and nothing seems to be working no matter how hard we try;
When we are in dire need of forgiveness and restoration;
When we’ve been lied to, betrayed, despised and forgotten.

In such times, we realise there’s one buddy, one friend we can count on any day, any time, anywhere.
He’s never tired or weary of us, He’s always there in good times, bad times, middle times.
He never fails and we can count on
His unending love,
His redeeming mercy,
His unfailing compassion and
HIS matchless faithfulness
To see us through the times.
No matter how we beat His chest in pain or in anger, He is never broken.
His arms are always there wrapped around us, keeping us safe and secure in Him, comforting and consoling us. And if we wipe our tears and listen closely to His heart, we will hear Him saying,
“Trust Me child, I will never leave you nor forsake you”.

Jesus, the best Buddy we can ever have!

Mighty

“How are the mighty fallen,
And the weapons of war perished”
(2 Samuel 1:27)

No matter how hard or difficult,
No matter how impossible a person may be
When you find their soft spot;
They become easy to deal with
All their mental weapons
Come crashing down,
If everything fails, try love
Love always works

“The higher an object is,
The heavier the fall.”

“He that is down, needs fear no fall
He that is low no pride”
(John Bunyan)

There abides three things- hope, faith, love; and the greatest of them is love

Two is better than one they say
I never knew how true
Till I met you

Love is sweet to have they say
I never knew how sweet
Till I loved you

Life is wonderful when you have
someone to share it with
I never knew how true
Till I said,
“I will share my life with you”

Poet’s Notes:
I was going through my email this morning, deleting my old mails to have more storage space on my device. I came across this poem I wrote for my husband, then fiancé, on the 18/11/2006. I was truly amazed at my words and I was greatly encouraged. This resonates with my post yesterday- The Pen. I’ve completed forgotten that I wrote a beauty like this.

I know in many years to come, I will look back at my blog and my heart would be filled with great gladness when I read my words, my books and many more things I may have penned down.
Shalom

You Are Not Illusion

IMG_2593

Though I cannot see air
Yet, I can’t live without it
Though I cannot touch love
Yet, it flows within my heart

Though I cannot see You
Yet, I cannot live without You
Though I cannot touch You
Yet, You dwell within my heart

You are not an illusion
Father, You are real to me

Daily Prompt: Illusion

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

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.

Strangers – A Final Chapter

Strangers to love
Strangers forever
A love gone and lost
A long sad road
The pretence is over
The truth is open
Our journey is over
Our roads part open
I have no regrets
I loved till the end
Our moments were sweet
Our memories to cherish
Today I bid you farewell
Today I make this toast-
Yes, strangers to love
Yet, friends forever

I Am Alive

Love,
Like a butterfly
Fluttering inside,
Tickling;
Thick walls of
Resentment,
Bitterness,
Anguish,
Crumbling down

Into pieces,
When I gave
Love,
A free hand, to
Heal
My wounded heart
And
To restore me
Back,
To the beautiful life
I once loved
To live,
So,
Now,
I live,
I am alive,
Because of
Love

Daily Prompt: Bitter

under the blanket…

under the blanket my tears flowed all through the night…

under the blanket I found strength to move on…

under the blanket I wished I didn’t love you…

under the blanket I knew I could still love again…

under the blanket, alone in my world, I decided…

i decided to give love a second chance…

Daily Prompt:  Blanket

Two Lovebirds

On a bed of tanned soft sandy shores
Under the starless opaque clouds
Sat two lovebirds in a honeymoon snug
Closely, silently, an affectionate hug
Watching the setting sun wave goodbye
While the restless murmuring sea
Hummed in a low non-rhythmic key
Immersed in the tranquil untroubled
No words uttered, none was needed

Daily Prompt: Opaque

Reflections From Life #8

Love is a wonderful piece of emotion.
It removes the mess in your heart and makes you a champion
It heals your lonely heart and gives you a reason to live
It’s better to love and be hurt than not love at all
Take a chance, love with your whole heart.
It has a way of leaving you better than how you met it.

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…

Daily Prompt: Elixir
