So far, yet so close

So far, yet so close

He is online I say, Hi
Hi there, he says

I don’t why
But I smile at every
Word he writes to me

All day long,
Sharing our dreams, hopes,
jokes, fears and daily stories.
Amazing.

How comforting, encouraging
And supportive it can be.
How sad, dull and restless it can be
Once offline

He is my pal,
On the other side on the keyboard,
So far, yet so close

Hi, there

Lies to cover lies

Lies to cover lies

Once I told a lie,
Easily they believed me
And oh … I went,
That was easy!

One question after the other,
Follow ups and clarifications
Oops, I went
This is becoming nasty

Day after day
I had to keep my word,
Well my lie,
Telling the truth sounded stupid,
And keeping the lie alive became painful.

Lies to cover lies,
You can not easy get your way out
Truth, may be next time,
For you don’t need to remember
What you said the last time.

Life without you

Life without you

I never thought I would live without you,
I never imagined I will watch sunrise, to sunset without you by my side.
Things change so I heard,
Now I believe

Once a candle is blown,
Darkness closes in,
And once a vacuum is created,
Air displaces it at the first chance it gets

I think air filled the vacuum,
As soon as it was created,
Memories were forgotten,
As though they never meant a thing,

Life without you,
So different from what I imagined

Praying for magic

Praying for magic

Trying to reach you
Wherever you are

Why did you leave me all alone?
I thought I would go through this,
The time did not seem so long to wait for,

Now am praying for magic,
To be where you are
In a flash of a second

No trick seems to work,
It seems I got to wait,
Until I see you again.

Waiting on a Salary

Waiting on a Salary

Sitting on my desk,
With a pile of invoices shading me from light
Thinking through and through
Hoping the salary comes in soon

I wonder will it be able to carry me through it all,
Will I pay the bills, buy myself a gift,
Take my kids out; buy my wife a gift,
Or buy a different meal for my family.

In no time,
It leaves me again,
All alone with my pile of invoices,

Am waiting for next month’s salary,
May be then I will pay the bills,
Take my kids out,
Buy my wife a necklace.

All months seem the same,
Year in year out,
But am still waiting on

Take it down with a bottle

Take it down with a bottle

They say,
Take it down with a bottle,
So I joined the club.

One, two, three…
Soon I lost the count.
May be my sight,
And memory to

In the morning
I was no longer
At the club but rather
At my house
Sitting on bathroom flow
With my head lying gently,
On a toilet seat

I now know the true
Meaning of
“Take it down with a bottle”

Count Down for World Cup.

Most of us are not ‘foot ball’ funs, however that does not mean we don’t enjoy the matches. We actually do; especially when Cameron or Chelsea guys are playing.

Some how i have enjoyed this world cup. May be because i was not competing with it in any way. I just hope my nephew and niece will be coming to visit me once the cup is done with.

To bad many African Countries were kicked out before we could enjoy them. but hey, ‘Well Done to Ghana!’.
The guys have played like men.

Anyhow the cup is almost done… and it bring me to think;
What next?
– The soaps on Tv seem to be boring of late.
– Movies, You need friends over to enjoy them.
– Visiting, not good at that.

Any how, i don’t seem to find something that is so fun like world cup. However i think i will try out those things that are ‘not-me’ you never know i may enjoy them as we look forward to Premier Ship once again.

All I’ve done

All I’ve done

I have text lots of SMS to you
Hovered at the send option
Thought over it, over and over
I hit cancel,
And wished I; I had sent it.

I have hovered at dial,
Looking at your name over and over
Yearning to talk to you…
And tell you all that I feel for you

I have called to meet you several times
Purposing to tell you everything

It seems I can’t get
To the point of all
That I want to say to you

The look at your face leaves me speechless
Your voice keeps me calm
And your hands comfort me…

Well I have done a lot,
Some I don’t even remember.
I want you to know that I care about you so much
I think and pray for you all the time
And I wish only the good to come your way

Oh,
Before I fail to say it again
I just need you to know that
I love you, and never forget that.
