When I see you


When I see you

When I see you

When I see you

Like a drop of oil spreading around
So does my heart move,
When I see you,
That is when I remember
How I treasure you.

Like a fragile glass,
Or may be like a little bird,
That is how I hold in my arms.

So close, and so deep,
My image in your eyes,
And yours in mine
Our souls meet.

I could stare at you all day long,
Those eyes, so white and bright
That smile, so wide and sincere
The cute dimples
I cherish your innocence.

Many things between us,
These happen,
When I see you.

Could you be the one?


Could you be the one?

Could you be the one?

Could you be the one?

I’ve waited for all my life
For the one and only,
I read in bed time stories.

The one that can fill this heart of mine
With butterflies and bubbles of love
The one so handsome, inspiring,
Amazing, loving and caring.

I find you soft spoken and fun
My heart is over flowing with joy,
Yet great mysteries surround you.

I’m touched deeply
In a way I can’t explain
By the majestic embrace of arms

My soul charmed
And a glorious connection was made.
I am left speechless.

A moment so short lived,
With my heart out of my chest,
One question remains unanswered;
Could you be the one?
Or it’s too soon to tell?

Forbidden Feelings


Forbidden Feelings

Forbidden Feelings

Forbidden Feelings
Every word you say,
Paints a beautiful picture in my mind,
One I would love to hold on to.
One I would love to cherish,
One I would like to share with you!

My soul is swept away in a breeze,
Emotions awaken,
Dreams ignited,
And a desire to have and hold
consumes me.

At that moment,
In a flicker, pain pops in,
Truth is we are not meant to be,
Forbidden feelings it is.

Truth sets one free,
But who wants to hear the truth
When it’s against them.

Feelings should be respected,
A miracle prayed for
But should dreams of pain,
And forbidden feelings
Be embraced?

Am tired of hoping against hope,
Am tired of holding on a dream
I can’t sustain.
Am tired of guilt
Forbidden feelings

My love will wait for you.


My love will wait for you

My love will wait for you

.

My love will wait for you

My love will wait for you
This I promise you.
Loneliness will come
Hope will fade
Yet my love will wait for you

Time will come,
When I will be tired of waiting
When God’s presence seems so far
Pray for me to be strong
And to hold on God’s promise
And my love will wait for you

Until then,
Let’s continue praying for one another
Until then,
Let’s continue writing to one another
Take care of your self, as I take care of myself
He hasn’t not forgotten about us
We have to wait for his time
We have to wait for our day.

Soon we will hold each others hand,
And another promise will be made.
I know you are as lonely as I am
Yet still waiting.
Just remember,
My love will wait for you.

I Love this man.


On this planet lives a man,
His love is mine and mine is his.
He makes me happy and
feel blessed by God.

He makes my day brighter
And paints a smile on my face when am sad.
He makes my worries and troubles feel lighter
He reaches out his hand to me,
Draws me to his to his shoulder
And whispers…
“It’s ok!”

Somehow he understands me,
When I don’t understand myself
He helps me reason and
stay focused on what is at hand.

His love is amazing…
Holding him is a heavenly bliss
He is all I could ever ask of

He encourages me
He supports me
He listens to me
He dries my tears
He celebrates with me
He writes me love letters
He remembers the days in our lives
And he embraces me gently

I love this man,
His love is unique and special to me,
Never will I let anything between us
I cherish each moment we share,
Even holding hands in church

My love,
Together there is nothing we can’t endure
You are a treasure I will cherish forever
I love you.

My Valentine



I love you when
you’re gentle and kind
I love you when you smile
I love your soft touch especially
when you hold my hands

I love how
smart and caring you are,
you remember and keep time

I love the spirit that lives in you.
I love the fact that you are
different and full of surprises.

I love your sense of humor
you make me laugh out loud

I love loving you,
Thanks for being you.
You are my special Valentine.

I Don’t Waana Cry


I Don’t Waana Cry


It’s not fair that you bring tears
In my eyes
Or this horrible pain
in my heart

I don’t waana cry
At least not after all
we’ve been through

My eyes don’t deserve these tears
And neither does my heart
Deserve this pain
Or my soul, this sorrow
But still that is what you bring me.

You have no ideal,
Of what has been done to push
the memories and moments
share off my mind.

You don’t know what it means,
Seeing the would you built
with so much dreams
Falling apart before your eyes
Yet nothing can be done to stop it.

Now all that is gone,
I see you collecting
bits and pieces
to built it all over again.

Make up your mind,
I will understand
whatever you chose to do,
But please
I don’t waana cry ever again.

Drowning in love


Drowning in love

That mystery face you carry of late
Those lips that move to smile
So often than usual
That glow in yo’eyes,
It has been long since I saw that.
I have come to love the woman I see.

You toss, turn and laugh in sleep
I know you have happy dreams
Filled with flower gardens and water falls.
What has changed in you?
I wonder.

You’re drowning in love
What else makes your heart lighter,
Awakes your passion and seal?
I love the moment,
And I know you love it to…
I pray it lasts forever.

Just as you are about to say good bye to love


We long to fall in love, hold on to it as we enjoy every moment as it unfolds in our lives. We long to be loved and love as it’s a desire the creator put in our hearts.

However they are moments when we close the door to love, with a sharp pain in our hearts that it brought us in its last visit. And just as you say Good bye, Love knocks again on your door.

You may sit on the floor with you back on leaning on the door and cry, due to the fear you have in your heart. You may wonder, should I open the door, should I let my heart to this love again, what about its pain?

Truth be told, no one can say, they wont hurt you and you can’t promise the same either, something may go wrong, something will make you cry at some point… but amidst love… there is something that will make you smile, laugh and make you feel lighter.

That is what you will cherish, but you will never know unless you open the door to love.

Hurting your feelings


Hurting your feelings

Rushing through life
With less concern of whatever was around me,
Not even a reminder that
I owe you this moment.

I did not know
That putting work 1st hurts you,
That putting self 1st makes me selfish,
That going out with my friends,
Leaves you so alone and bored.

Am sorry,
Sorry, for forgetting
That I make the biggest part of your life,
Am sorry for failing to remember
What I mean to you,
Am sorry for hurting for your feelings

I hope to take it slow,
Enjoy each moment that I share with you,

Look at me


Look at me

Sitting here all pretty yet you don’t see
The fact that I’m doing nothing with my life
I’m not anyone’s wife, instead I’m having fun
My life is not done, at least am better than you
And there’s nothing you can say or do

Gosh am tired of lies,
You say am good when you don’t believe in you own words.
You hate the fact that I’m alive,
Yet am trying to survive,
I struggle like any other man on earth

You’re my number one fan,
Instead of hating the fact,
Just embrace it,
Denying it won’t change a thing.

Am pretty, what a pity
Your loss not mine
So look at me now.

The one and only


The one and only

I felt my heart drop,
As I watched you go
It’s like I died that moment.

My heart, poor heart,
Nothing matters anymore!
No laughter, joy, or happiness

May be am giving up too fast?
May be he will come back?
Was that the one and only one for me?
Did I lose my chance for ‘happy-ever after’?
These questions are killing me.

Oh God, Tell me
Was he…
Was he one and only?

I hope he was not,
For I have a great love to share.
And still I need love in my life.

Mr. Gentle Hash


Mr. Gentle Hash

He came to my life,
Like a wind that harms no plant,
Gently my heart opened,
Like a flower opens to the rain

Soon, everything was fishy,
The care, faded away,
Without warning!

My heart was left hang on a spider rope
Assured of falling and breaking
I don’t even have a chance to plea my case
Or even a second hearing.

Something will forever be misunderstood,
I wish our eyes can see into the hearts of others,
May be then I will understand
All the questions he left in my heart

Much as I want a knife in my hands
All I can do is to shake off the mad,
Life seems to have more in store.

Old bed of mine


Old bed of mine

Moved to a new a new house,
Running from our house,
Our memories

Our house
Where all our memories were created
Memories I have failed to push behind.

This old bed of mine,
Lying on it,
Takes me to what I was running from

This old bed of mine,
Laid the way you want it,
The pillows
Placed where you want them,

On this old bed of mine,
I feel you lying besides me,
Yet as I move to hold you,
May be to kiss you,
All I touch is a pillow!

To forget you,
I have to lose,
All that I shared with you

Memories make me lonely,
Yet am not ready to forget you,
I will keep this old bed of mine,

Holding on to a hope,
That one day,
We’ll start where we stopped.

Well that is what I could write after a song….
I forgot the title though…may be it was “Past memories”

Crush


Crush

My heart skipped
At a glace at you

You caught me looking at you,
And the best I could was to smile
That attracted you to me.

Hardly did I know
That, that little thing would end up into sleepless nights

All I think of is, you
All I dream of, is you
All I see, is you
In every thing I set my eyes on

I have tried to fight this
As well as enjoying the moment
Of this crazy feeling

However it has crossed the line,
Am losing my mind over you
It’s driving me crazy
And I have to fight it,

This time,
Get rid of it
And free my soul

I got a crush on you,
But one question is
When will it go away?

Wish I can turn pages backwards,
I would open to before I met you.

Years have passed
Me and you as best of friends

May be that is all I am to you,
A best friend,
And am grateful
For having you as a friend

Today I have to share
This secret of mine with you

Am in love with you,
For a long time,
You have been that to me

Today,
You needed to know
This love secret of mine,

One night to remember


One night to remember

The wind is calm
Your hand in mine
We take the slope

The stars all shining
Birds singing softly
And it’s just you and I

Looking at you
You’re smiling
Am comforted

Step by step
You guide my feet
In every move I make

Holding on firm to my little hand,
And carrying me up
For the steps I missed
That is one night to remember,
You caring and protecting me

Just for me


Just for me

With strips on your back
I was healed

With three nails,
I was saved

You’re rejected
For me to be loved

You died,
For me to live

All that just for me,
Thanks for loving me.

Falling in Love Vs Growing in love


Garden

I was looking at our African Tradition and how they used to prepare for marriage and I realized they embraced more of growing in love rather than falling (Parents used to do the match making for their children, so a man doesn’t know whom his to marry until the introduction day!).Honestly if such a thing was to be practiced am sure they would have endless misunderstandings.

Let’s get back to the falling in love thing; if there is anything sweet on earth, it’s falling in love. So, I used to say. Then one day I meant some one who did not believe in my theory…. Of course I did not buy that, I told him he did not know how it felt like.

However one thing wrong with falling you standup again and start asking so many questions to yourself and mostly you feel like walking away. In our land we have a coning phrase, “If I was to fall again, it would be at your feet!”, and it sound more beautiful and romantic in its original language.

Many are the times we have fallen and by the time we stand up, we are not impressed with where we fell. That is when I borrow the idea of growing in love. They believe more in choices than feelings.

Am not that comfortable with choices… I like the feeling that sweeps off your feet and you find yourself flying on angel’s wings, and you just can not stop smiling, bla bla … It really feels good.

When it comes to choices, I just wonder what happens. I believe every thing is calculated and there are few things that get off the line!!! Do you ever feel the power of your heart or you feel the power of your head / brain instead?

Am not sure what I would want next, to fall or to grow. If you fall it hurts, and that ‘grow’ things seems less exiting! But I would love to grow, even after the fall! Ha ha ha..
That would be the best.
