The beginnings of friendship...
You meet, you talk you say to talk again,
You live, you laugh and you say to do again
Before you know that's just the way it is

The joys of friendship...
You laugh and laugh harder together,
Secrets that break nations, u both share
And everyone’s thought is worth a listening ear

The pain of friendship...
You cry and cry heavy tears,
Each feels the sorrows of the other
And mere presence helps ease the grief

The fight of friendship...
Trust slowly illusive becomes
And doubts flood the love filled hearts
Questions are asked in hurt and
Things that erase past words are said

The curse of friendship...
Now it begins to feel empty and lonely
Like no one cares and no one shares
No walks completely out and
no one wants to turn completely off

The LOVE of friendship...
It suddenly becomes real to both
That they have built the world around them both
Every place and person expects them both
And every laugh and worry needs them both

The uncertainty of friendship
So do they find that once started?
Or do they live and act like it never was
Do they survive this hard headed decision?
Or they accept the truth of life, that
Friends fight, but fight to get better at being,
The friends that they set out to be...

The blessing of friendship...
..."and yet there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother"
..."faithful are the wounds of a friend..."
...a friend loveth at all times...

What’s To Know?

Yesterday I wanted to step back
But you kept saying no use for the dark
In my mind there is a battle of sides
One saying this and the other saying that

Today, am sitting here and I just don’t know
Lines like these may leave you wondering
Because they leave me truly wondering
I don’t know anymore...

I don’t know anymore
May be, possibly, actually, I have never known,
What really it is this life wants

Today, am here but you are not
And I just want to talk
What do I want to say?
I know not, just that I want to talk
... To you.

Yesterday you said what you wanted
But I couldn’t give and had to be blunt
You said how you felt but
I couldn’t fit myself in that belt
In fairness I used honesty
Even mixed with some sort of modesty

Today am still me and still just me
I sit wondering and am sure
I don’t want you to go
But I also said no
Could we just live in the moment?
Where everything is nice and slow

Here’s to the Birthday Girl!

The star of the day...
Today like all other days I wish u well
I wish you Ble$$ings
And I wish you favor
I wish you joy and I wish you peace
I wish you love and I wish you happiness
I wish you success and I wish you victory
I wish you sunshine even when it’s raining
I wish you light in darkness
I wish you blue skies even when it’s shady
I wish you MORE of the best things in life
And above all I wish you grace which is God Himself
And if there is anymore I could wish...I wish for you,
This day and ALWAYS. Happy Birthday!

A Eulogy of Understanding

Life, sure we will never understand,
The dilemma of companionship even more illusive
One day you long for the absence of one
The next day you yearn for the presence of same
One day you’re wondering “when does it end?”
Next day you’re dreading the day it’s gone
One day you are hoping the phone never rings
Another day you are wondering if it rang its last
One day you are hating the attention
Next day you are upset it’s going away
One day you detest the love you have
Another day you think you may feel same
One day you wake up and it’s just you
Then you begin to hate the real you
One day...you become very sure
That your life is never yours to understand


Days are full of work and stress
Duties and favors you can’t protest
Hustle of the day and uncertainty of the night
Deadlines, deals and closures
Plans, no plans, success and failure, rise and fall
These are the events real life is made of

Survival is to get away,
a day or two could clear the field,
With hours of silence and places of solitude
These are the moments life is rebuilt

Thoughts are crowding and your mind is overworked
Where is the money? No time for holiday
The deal needs attention and the family is waiting
These are the thoughts that hinder your peace

Take an hour, a day or two,
Get away; relax like there’s nothing to do
No worries, no stress, it’s just life and you
Smell the roses, feel the breeze,
Let the sun through the window never cease
These are the actions that rekindle life

Now back to work, school and life
Find yourself with renewed strength, hope and possibility
Don’t forget you must find another time to do again,
Your escape from your usual day
For this is the way life MUST be lived.

For You and Me

The nails were long and not so thin,
The spear was sharpened and forced so deep
The tree was wretched and heavy for Him
But still He went this way for me

The jeers were loud, harsh and sour
The very crowd who named Him King
With their branches and clothes they did
But still He went this way for me

The betrayal and disbelief so unfair
The coldness and pain of death He embraced
With courage and obedience in mind
He went this way for you and me.

The Ultimate Sacrifice

Who am I and what am I worth,
That the Greatest Ruler, the Dearest Father
Would give Himself a ransom for me

Who am I and what am I worth,
That He will hang by nails of many inches
Which He never deserved

Who am I and what am I worth,
That He will be pierced by a spear of wickedness
Which was never justified

Who am I and what am I worth,
That His assumed end was a sharpened spear
Still hang on that wretched tree

All this He suffered for you and me
