I DO

i do2

I do

Only to you I do

You have no clue

How much I love you

I mean it when I say I do

Even in those moments when I don’t feel so

I still do

To you I do

Forever I do

I pledge my heart to you

Forever I love you

Who knew I would love you

To the point of “I do”

Well, here I am saying, “I do”

To serve you and only you

To cherish you and only you

To love you and only you

To laugh with you

To walk with you

To have kids with you

To grow old with you

Here I am with you

At the altar again…me and you

Renewing my vows to you

You know I do…

I do love you and only you!

GOD AND I

god-and-i_blog-icon-fw

 

I WILL SIT AND WAIT

COS I KNOW YOU ARE NEVER LATE

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

OH! MY HEART IS FULL…

FULL OF YOUR LOVE

FILLED WITH PEACE

OH! SUCH BLISS!

I’M SURE YOU LOVE ME

I’M SURE YOU WANT ME

JUST AS I AM

OH, HOW I LOVE THEE!

JUST LOOK AT ME…

FROM A GIRL WITH SO MANY WORRIES

TOO MANY…I CARRIED THEM IN LORRIES

THE GIRL I WAS BEFORE

I SEE NO MORE

I’M COMPLETELY LOST IN YOUR LOVE

I’M NOT GOING BACK!

LET THEM BARK!

I’M FINE JUST WHERE I AM NOW

YOU’VE GIVE ME A CROWN

I’M…I’M NOW A PRINCESS!

ROYALTY I AM…SO PRICELESS!

I DON’T RECOGNIZE ME ANYMORE

I SEE YOU IN ME WHEN I LOOK IN THE MIRROR

OH! SWEET SWEET LOVE!

JUST LOOK AT ME!

OH, MY!

I’M IN A LOVE-RELATIONSHIP

I’M IN A REAL RELATIONSHIP!

I’M NEVER LETTING GO!

OH YES!

YOU PROMISED TO NEVER LEAVE ME …

…HERE I AM!

A PUPPET I AM IN YOUR HANDS

YOU HAVE THE STRINGS IN YOUR HANDS

PULL THEM AND I’LL DANCE IN YOUR PRESENCE

A SWEET OFFERING LAVISHED WITH INCENSE

I’M ALL YOURS

CALL MY NAME AND I’LL YIELD

I’LL JOIN THE WORKERS IN THE FIELD

I’LL WORK THE FIELD

I’LL DO ANYTHING FOR YOU

ONLY FOR YOU

CALL MY NAME AND I’LL YIELD

CALL MY NAME, OH LORD!

I’M YOURS

THIS IS MY LOVE SONG TO YOU

I CALL IT, “GOD AND I”

PLEASE STAY

please-stay

I need to go

Please don’t say no

I’ll be back

But not right now

I’ll be away

But not for too long

Let me sing you one last song

A song that will make you smile

I really want to be with you

But I can’t take you with me

The storm would hit me so hard if I do

Please don’t cry!

I know…I know I should try

But not right now

He’ll pursue me

He’ll run after me

He might hurt me

I don’t want him to hurt you too

It will make me cry

So, please stay

You can’t go with me

I’ll come back for you…

…But not now

One thing is certain

I’ll come back for you

And then

We’ll be together again

IN THE ZONE

IN THE ZONE.fw.png

 

I’ve heard all you’ve said…I’m touched

Your heart feels squashed

Don’t let your spirit be crushed

Just let the pain be washed

(Upset) Oh…I’m doing it again!

This disguise I must squash

 

They hurt you every time

You cry all the time

You weep on my shoulders e-v-e-r-y time

I cry with you sometimes

(Angry) I’m done!

This is a crime!

 

I’ve loved you for so long

You put me in a zone I don’t belong

My heart you’ve hung

(Teary-eyed) That’s just wrong!

I’m now your tag-along

But not for long

 

You call me friend

But my heart you apprehend

“A true friend to the end”

 (Scoffs) What a fool I’ve been!

I’ve been in this zone far too long…why…I really can’t comprehend

So all I’ve done is pretend

 

But today I draw the line

This zone I decline

I’m not your kin…stop piercing my heart like a porcupine

I’ve waited twelve years for you to be mine

I’m tired of being sidelined

(Walks away) I’m out!

YOURSELF

yourself small

 

To advice yourself

All by yourself

Because you love yourself

And you are yourself

And you care about yourself

Because you yourself…

…oh, yes you yourself

Sometimes know what’s best for yourself

Without hurting yourself

Or condemning yourself

But speaking the truth to yourself

And creating a better picture for yourself

After a nice date with God and yourself

So you sit under the mango tree all by yourself

And think for yourself

At the end of the day, the crowd will reduce…you’ll see for yourself

So, that’s why you must do right for yourself

Don’t fool yourself!

Please give some constructive advice to yourself

And create a better version of yourself

For the sake of others and most importantly, YOURSELF

 

-Signed by Yourself for Yourself

BURY THE TRUTH

bury the truth_smal

 

In the twinkle of an eye

The story changed

The story I loved to tell

The story everyone loved to hear

A storybook filled with pretty pictures

A story so perfect

A story so rare

Envied by all

In the twinkle of an eye

It all changed

You didn’t wait for me to say goodbye

You destroyed my pretty fairytale

You revealed a different side of the story

I loved this story!

Don’t you get it!

It was perfect!

How dare you ruin it for me!

Yes, I believe you

You saw it all happen

I was too little to remember

Too little to know the version you speak of

Yes, I believe your version

It holds facts

It sounds so much like the truth

But I don’t like that version

It makes me cry

How dare you ruin it for me!

I like my version better!

Keep your facts!

Bury the truth!

I’ve heard your story!

But I don’t want it!

Keep it to yourself!

Tell it to your children!

I like my story better

It’s beautiful and perfect

I’ll rather have a smile each time I tell it

Than cry each time I tell it

So, be gone!

Keep your truth

I’ll tell my story

 

 “Denial is the refusal to accept reality or fact, acting as if a painful event, thought or feeling did not exist. It is considered one of the most primitive of the defense mechanisms because it is characteristic of early childhood development. Many people use denial in their everyday lives to avoid dealing with painful feelings or areas of their life they don’t wish to admit.”

SO LONG

SO LONG

 

I still hear you sing

Sweet memories it brings

Your kind eyes filled with love

Sweet tales you loved to tell

To speak and make me smile

Night time jokes

Oh! I used to laugh so hard

And watch you laugh as the tears travelled down your cheeks

How time flies!

I just wrote you a poem…last year…

…Last year…Come on!

I used to wish you were here

I used to pray to have you back

Many wishes to hear you speak

My eyes…they leak

My throat hurts a bit

These are all feelings

They don’t last forever

 
 

But the memories will never depart

Forever they will remain in my heart

Little precious stones memories are

Now we are apart

You journeyed home to meet The King

Your favorite songs I still sing

I no longer wish you were here

I’m happy you are there

I don’t see you now

It hurts so bad…I know!

But soon I’ll see you again

Say hello to all our loved ones in heaven

Greet The King and stay happy

It’s been eleven years

Oh…these tears!

So long Mama

Till we meet again

So long!
