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

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)

When Love Waits

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
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

22nd October, 1994

Immediately the organist played, I turned around with the congregation… and there she was walking down the aisle. Walking towards me, with the most gorgeous smile I 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, my southern belle, would soon be my wife, was an excitement I barely controlled that day.

It’s been over 22 years now starting from the day I proposed, but, that day is still as vivid to me as if it was yesterday.

Beautiful Soul

One glance at your face
One look into your eyes
They tell me your story
They narrate your tale
No hideouts, no veils
As clear as the day
I hear your cheery laughs
I hear your gentle voice
But one look into your eyes
I see something extraordinary
I see your beautiful soul

Daily Prompt: Hideout

Wonderful, adorable, my precious wife,

Forever, till death part us, it shall be,
Because, everything about you is beautiful.

Hold Me Gently

Draw me deeper,
Hold me stronger,

I tend to slip,
When I think I’m standing.

Don’t be fierce,
Don’t be harsh,
Hold me gently;

I tend to break,
When I think I’m strong.

I’ll stand with you,
If you hold my hand.

Don’t be mad,
Don’t belittle,
Treat me gently;

My steps are sure,
If you take the lead.

My heart beats stronger,
When you come for me.

Daily Prompt: Fierce

My Lifetime Journey…

He prayed. He sought.
He searched. I’m found.
He looked. I blushed.
He talked. I heard.
He asked. I agreed
His ring. I took.
We hugged. We talked.
We planned. We spent.
We found love. We told families.
We got married. We had babies.
We fought. We argued.
We reconciled. We kissed.
We laugh together.
We cry together.
We work together.
We eat together.
We play together.
We pray together.
Nine years together.
We still love each other.
God brought us together.
Lord, keep us together.

The Music of his love

18th June, 1994

How could he forget that day? 18th June 1994. One beautiful Saturday, just like any other summery sunny day that his life took another exciting course. He travelled down South to Tessax City to spend a weekend with his beloved Alice.

On a casual stroll down the meadow, her peachy skirt glimmered in the sun as she smiled gorgeously to him; as she always does. There she was, he remembered thinking then, my sweet Southern belle glowing like a diamond in his heart. He remembers perfectly how they stopped at the top of the meadow to view the countryside, the scenery was breathtaking and they just stood still, taking in all that this priceless view could offer.

Without thinking, he suddenly said, “Alice, will you marry me?”, she turned and looked at him smiling. He turned and gazed softly into her big beautiful eyes and said again, “Alice, will you be my wife?”
She gave him such a big shy grin, hugged him so close he could perceive the Yves Saint Lauren perfume he bought for her on her birthday in March, and said, “Of course I will marry you, my dear Jamie” “I will marry you”.
In excitement, he held her around the waist and swirled her round and round screaming with utmost joy, “She said yes!! She said yes!! My southern belle said yes!!”

And today, 2 lovely girls and 1 grandson and another grandchild on the way, my Southern belle still glows like a priceless diamond in my heart like she did 22 years ago, he reminisced.

Best Buddies

A buddy is your best friend, the person you can confide in without the fear of been judged or criticised. He/she sees the best in you when no one else does and pushes you on to achieve your best. You fight, you argue, you make-up, you play and have a cheery hearty laugh. You talk about anything and everything; you are not afraid to say anything because you know your buddy will not misunderstand you. He/she knows you too well to take offence. You cry in each other’s shoulders, you pray and comfort each other, you achieve well and rejoice together.

No man is an island, hence man is a social being. We need our buddies to function well, for when our emotions cloud our judgement, our best friends/buddies objectively help us have a clear thought path, and do sometimes save us from terrible decisions. Buddies hold a special place in our hearts for there’s a special bond and closeness the two of you share that some people may not understand.

And we all love and care a lot about them, that’s why they are our buddies.

The Music of His Love

The sound of his voice is music to my ears,
His tender whispers of love is music to my heart,
He looks at me with unfeigned devotion,
He smiles at me with great admiration,
With the touch of his hands, I know I’m secure;
With the touch of his lips, I know I’m loved;
Melodious symphonies playing on the stereo
Wrapped in his wonderful strong arms, I am
In tune in body, heart and soul,
I’m lost in a time I wish not to end,
As we gently dance to the music of love,
I am my beloved and my beloved is mine.

(A love poem dedicated to my loving husband)
