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?

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.

I Know That Woman


I Know That Woman

I know that woman
that says only things
she does not believe,

I know the one that
claims to hate love
when all she yearns for is
to love and be loved.
And she cries holding
strong on her pillow,

I know that woman that
hates feeling like a woman
because men treat her
less of her value.
And keeps her self
busy not feel alone,
I know that woman.

I also know that woman
that takes pride in her self,
and the fact that she is a woman.
When she walks by,
ever man turns around.
And she likes that;
it makes her feel attractive
and young inside.

I know that woman that
closes her eyes,
when she is kissed or hugged
as she saves every moment.
She adores her self and glorifies
God in all she does
for He made her who she is.

I know that woman.

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 another harvest


Just another harvest

Standing in the middle of my field,
All I can see is a bush,
Shrubs with thorns and hooks
I wonder, did I plant this?

Did some visit my garden
And change all my seeds,
Did I have a garden at all?
I wonder.

My house is so clean,
And so quite,
No kids running around,
Or a wife by my side!
I wonder, are these the choices I made,
Or someone else imposed this on me?

Am driving home from the supermarket,
My neighbor is walking home,
With heavy loads on her shoulders
Yet she turns down my help,
I wonder could she be scared of me,
Did I do something wrong to her?

So many wild seeds I have planted,
So many you too have planted,
Don’t act innocent.

Some I have forgotten,
Just like you have forgotten yours
Yet now all the fruits are ripe,

This is just another harvest
I don’t want to pick any,
Nor keep any in my house.

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,
Beneth,

I wish I was not his best friend


I wish I was not his best friend

I wish I was not the one
He calls when he is trouble
seeking for help

I wish I was not the one
He visits with his casual shirt,
no perfume, or
before he brushes his teeth

I wish I was not the one
He tells everything about his life

I wish I was not the one
Who has to understand
his weaknesses.

I wish I was not the one
He calls his best friend/buddy/pal

I wish I was the one
He acts perfect with

I wish I was the one
He pulls his best shirt,
fragrance and smile

I wish I was the one
He tells nice thing, takes out,
buys flowers and chocolate

I wish I was not his best friend,
But rather he woman he loves.

Forgotten Garden


Forgotten Garden

Beautiful green valley,
Was its name.
With a river running through it,
Showering it with clear waters all day long

Full of life,
With lots of butterflies
flying around it
That was my garden.

The valley lies dry,
Covered in dust
As though no water
Ever passed there.

The green beautiful
Garden is long forgotten

A New Song


A New Song

I feel a new song in my heart,
A song of thanks giving
And praises, to only you my lord.

All that I am,
I owe to you,
And all I have
You have provided
Unto me.

Sorry for the lost times,
When I did not appreciate you

Sorry for the times
I have praised myself over you
Thought of;
Am good, smart, powerful
I deserved it,
I have earned it,
And filled myself up with pride.

The true colors of love


The true colors of love

What’s the color of love?
Red, green, Pink, Yellow,
May be the rainbow

We buy Roses, Chocolate, and Jewelry
In the name of love,
With a sweet beautiful card.

Yet remained selfish, Irritable,
Not willing to let go of the ill manners,
Or even forgive those who hurt us.

When you say love,
I want to see truth,
Patience, Kindness,
Faithfulness, Forgiveness
and perseverance

For those are the
true colors of love.

Envy


Envy

Many are the times
I have wished
I had what others have

Many I don’t even know
what to use them for
Or even where
they got them from

Thank God,
He never granted my wishes.
Thank you for protecting
me from myself.
Thank you for saving me
from the troubles of this world

And now Lord,
I ask you;
Please take this crazy
desire away from me.

Take it way,
Before I hurt myself.

Please forgive me


Please forgive me

Forgive me oh Lord,
For I have not been good to you.
I have ashamed your name
And sinned against you
in uncounted times

My mind has not been pure,
It’s covered with sinful thoughts.
It’s like a market place

My tongue,
Instead of praising you
Says a lot of bad things
Some against you,
Some against your creations
And judging them in my own ways
Please forgive me

My body has not been any different,
It’s not a temple good enough for you,

If I was to cut off each part
That leads me to sin..
Not sure which one would remain
Please forgive me

I have angered your spirit,
With my thoughts,
Speech and actions
And I don’t deserve you’re forgiveness

I can’t ask you to judged me
For your so perfect and am not.

Am asking for forgiveness,
In your mercy, love and grace
I really need to be your child again.

Waiting


Waiting

As I wait,
Every minute feels like
a million years

I get so impatient
Much as I would like to see
your will be done as you promised

I get so tired of waiting,
Yet I know yo word is true
And I that this about myself

Give me the strength to wait
A hope to face a better tomorrow
And a greater hope to see
your promise for my life

Give me a song
To remind me that you’re God
That you care about me
More than I can even imagine.

And as I wait,
Let that song be played.

Sound of Joy


Sound of Joy

It’s like a sound of harvest in the fields
A song of food after famine
Just like the old good times of x-mas

Every part of me is happy
Exited,
Joyful
Passionate

God mus be tickling me,
I got no reason to laugh
Yet am laughing
This feels good

All I want is to feels like this
everyday of my life!

Back Online


Back Online

Every bad begaining
Has a chace to a good ending

God is not done with me yet
I would not want Him to stop either
I just need to trust him more

Same questions
Who am I today,
Where am I today,
And how am I today?

A reason for each piece of my life,
Say No to what the Lord says No to
And Yes to what he says Yes to

What about me?
It doesn’t matter
He knows better
So lets click next,
XOX am back online

Getting on with Life


Getting on with Life

Life slips away if you don’t hold on it
You simply pass from one day to another
With no or less feeling of yourself

We all drop it at some point in life,
I have turned a new page,
For a new story,
For a new life

Am getting on with life,
So should you.

God is working on me


God is working on me

Life used to be normal,
But now,
Everything is changing
And life is so challenging

God is still working on me,
With trying times,
It’s so hot in here,
The tests are no jokes,
and the purifying is not either.

General cleaning has never be easy,
It’s hard work,
It hurts, it’s painful,
Costly and it takes a lot of time.

And he is still going on
With his job.

I can’t wait to look at myself
Once he is done.
I know I will be shinning.

Passing Time


Passing Time

May times when life gets tight
we chose to sit back
and believe time heals the damage.

My cousellor calls it wasting time,
I call it giving things time,

Fix it if you can,
If you can’t chill it,
I say fix it if you can’t
worry on how it will go

Why ask Gos’s help
And hold onto the problem
Release if you need help
Only cover to protect
& protect no damage

Pass no time,
Act on it,
With hands or prayer
Work upon it.
