I will be damned if I pretend not to notice you.
It would be unlike me not to turn my head discreetly
And catch even a slight glance of you.
Indeed you are a work of art,
And the way you adorn yourself triples your worth.
Where have you been all my life is a question?
That has engraved itself into my mind
Since that day you brushed up against me.
A mixture of sugar, spice, and all things nicenice
With a dash of rock and roll cannot begin to describe
What went through my being at that moment.
There’s something about you that I try to figure out
But I can’t seem to get it right each time we meet.
My knees have never been so weak in my life
I always need to get my breathing in check
Every time I inhale your sexy cologne.
You tackle life with a smile
That puts all the toothpaste commercials to shame.
Confusion is never far away when I am around you,
But I don’t mind the feeling at all,
It’s my favourite kind of drug.
It takes me on a high yet my feet
Never leave the ground.
When I fall asleep I wish you were near me
Because why have a dream
When you can have the real thing?
My pillow has never been hugged tighter
Than when I am thinking of you but
It is a very poor substitute to your broad ,
Cozy, shoulders that I would never want to leave.
Your chocolate brown eyes seem to sparkle
With everything you do.
I could write a song for you
But each uninterrupted loving gaze
You offer in my direction is the best symphony
My heart has ever embraced.
You taught me to appreciate each
And every fleeting moment for you don’t know
How long it will last,
Or if you will ever experience it again.


You have brought something so beautiful my way.
The stars seem to shine in response to the joy
And love I feel within every fiber of my being.
You are more than my knight in shining armour
Because even though life and love may seem like a battlefield,
I know I won’t be afraid when you are with me.
Unspoken words finally get voiced out.
Feelings get flight through the words
That have emerged from within.
With these words, I let you know,
You are in my heart. I let you know
That you are loved. I let it be known
That I learnt to love from a distance
Since you, my love;
Do not even know I exist.

I love you but I have not met you yet.

I will wait and wait and will never fret.




I know you’re not perfect and you don’t have to be.

Just as long as Christ is in your heart, that’s good enough for me.

In God’s presence, I know I’m secure.

But I don’t mind having you for sure.

A Victoria Secret angel, I may never be

But maybe a Proverbs 31 woman, just wait and see

The first kiss on the altar we will save

In temptations, we shall flee and be brave

Just put Him first and you’ll see

How awesome our marriage will be

I love you but I have not met you yet.

I will wait and wait and will never fret.

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams

[Verse 1:]
It might seem crazy what I’m about to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

[Verse 2:]
Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
well, give me all you got, and don’t hold back, yeah,
well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine, yeah,
no offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why


Hey, come on

bring me down
can’t nothing bring me down
your love is too high
bring me down
can’t nothing bring me down
i said (let me tell you now)
bring me down
can’t nothing bring me down
your love is too high
bring me down
can’t nothing bring me down
i said

[Hook 2x]

Hey, come on

Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down… your love is too high…
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)

[Hook 2x]

come on

Enough said!



ImageLike sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives!

Days, hours, minutes, seconds, moments to treasure or moments you wish never happened…regardless of how you look at life, one aspect remains true, and by now it may sound cliche`…It goes on!!

  I won’t deny that there are times when I am in a state of severe alienation and burnout. When the pressures of life and the evils, insanity and corruption of the outside world are too much and you build a mental wall and you shut yourself out from everything and everyone. You just want to retreat by, mindlessly surfing the internet, watching TV or listening to music a LOT to take you from your inner pain but your attention span is so minimized you may wind up on the couch looking up at the ceiling and constantly changing TV channels with the remote. 

Well, I choose to add some sugar and spice into my life and if the last weekend was anything to go by, I will have some breathtaking moments to be thankful for with each new day!

So as life goes on, I choose not to moan over what I don’t have but be glad that I gradually becoming uncomfortable in my cocoon.

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”
C. JoyBell C.

I intend to enjoy my uncharted flight!
