One dream, one desire

I have walked miles,

Dreamt of dreams

Painted images

Of all I desire to have.

And chased then at a time

 

Now I stand,

Not far from my destination,

With one dream, one desire

And one prayer

All the achievements feel null and void,

All the joy is covered with fog

And a tear is rolling around my eye.

 

I need you,

I want you,

Not so far from me

But so close to me

To share our lives together

I need you, I love you, I miss you.

All for nothing

All for nothing

I have waited for you patiently

From one season to another,

From drought to floods,

I have waited.

Now that I have seen you,

I wonder,

Was the waiting was worth.

All for nothing,

All for nothing

Did you know?

Did you know?

Did you know I envied love birds?

And you came along, thank God!

Now, am jealous with you;

I need every moment for us!

—–

Did you know I love art?

I have a big painting of you in my heart!

And I dream of you often;

Such beautifully dreams.

Did you know?

—–

Did you why I was attracted to you;

Like a burning volcano?

You have a gracious voice,

How I admired your magnificent sound, so inspiring.

I praise you diligently for your character,

And I adore you!

—–

Did you know I would die without you?

I tremble every time you leave me alone

I miss you when you’re gone

—–

Did you know I pray for you all the time?

For God to shield you from your enemies

I care for you big time

And I cherish all our memories together.

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married.

Many of us are found of evaluating the man we married, rather than the man we are dating! And that is so wrong! Well that is my opinion. I believe once you’re dating, that is the time to evaluating if this cute guy actually respects you.

Unfortunately when we’re dating we tend to focus on the gifts they shower us with, the ticking clock, our friends are all married, he is cute, and he is ready to settle down… why the wait? We lament to our selves! We pay no attention to what we’re settling with” So one month after the alter we start evaluating our husbands.

If he doesn’t respect you when you’re dating he won’t change over after the wedding. If that is what you said ‘I-do’ to, for whatever reasons you had, why are you stressed? I don’t mean that you take in all the trash he sends to you… all I’m saying is, evaluate the man you date, and understand the man you married.

You may not see all his bad characters, he can actually hide them away from you… but a bad guy won’t turn into a good guy overnight.

“What if am married to him already?” Am not married so I can’t claim to know it all, but am told ‘prayer works!’ Pray for him, ask God to work through him and do your part as a wife; understand him, support him, encourage him, and don’t try to criticize every little thing he does or raising your voice at him. However you can try to show him the danger in what he is doing.

What more can I say?
Happy Marriage!

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 bad,
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?

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.
