Of all I shall regret saying in my life these words to you shall never be among and of all life has given me, you remain, you professed a place and purpose in it became not a part of it but its princess for my heart and soul too bowed to you it was and is you i had to tell those words. Stay; please don’t walk away from me Pretty and perfect; you are here and now As I see you, here and now I see only you who has just made me a fairly moment; So let this moment we have here remain Give me a chance; let me make it all ours Everlasting in our hearts and those around. Close your eyes princess, there I shall be, Stretch your arm out; I shall reach to it Smile to me and my day shall be brighter Call out my name and I will come to you Cause I ‘be here, close here, waiting on For the voice of my princess to make it real Waiting patiently the day you’ll say yes.

It is commonly said that good girls like bad boys for a number of reasons. That might be true because I used to like them.  And they were fun to be with…as long as it lasted. But after a number of senseless heartbreaks later and the sudden realization that my clock was ticking with no intention of slowing down, I decided to get serious. And by serious, I meant from graduating from the unserious guys with boyish brains to serious ones who actually had an idea what they wanted their lives to look like in the next five years at least. And oh boy, what a filter that was!

So I got invited to a church youth concert by a friend and since I was fed up with what the world had to offer (I think the world has run out of ideas, really) I wanted to taste life on the other side. I used to be active in church when I was young but I grew out of it as I grew up. Life happened.

The concert was great and it made me miss the good old churchy days. And the best part was my attention being stolen by one of the lead singers of the church’s choir (yeah, carnal me, I know). And an innocent inquiry about him from my friend informed me he was single and pleasant. Yippee! I suddenly felt like dancing…hard. Who said all the fine guys could be found in clubs? It was a lie from the pit of hell!

With the added incentive, I began to frequent the various church meetings and with subtle, deliberate actions grew close to Fine Church Boy. When he started to notice me with the waves and dashing smiles he sent my way, I knew the foundation had been well laid. But there was a problem. He was selective with the kind of girl he associated with. She had to be…a walking Bible. That was a challenge I was ready to take. Being a church girl wasn’t such a big deal…I could definitely dress, act and talk the part.

But alas, I wasn’t the only girl ‘spying’ Fine Church Boy in the congregation. And this girl was damn serious. I thought church girls wouldn’t fight over a guy…I was so wrong. I think church girls fought harder. Even found a verse to that effect…something about the violent taking it by force. She knew I liked him and she made sure I knew she wanted him too. This was going to be a violent ‘godly’ fight.

So there was an outreach coming up where volunteers were needed to spend time with some kids at the orphanage. And of course, Fine Church Boy being a part of the outreach committee was going. I was contemplating going because of some plans I had but that changed when I saw Ms. Church Rival raising her hand to be a volunteer. I knew it would be a terrible mistake not to go so before I could think things through, my hand shot up in the air and my name was put down. She gave me the typical ‘game on’ face which I responded in like manner.

Little did I know that the outreach was a testing ground for elimination and Ms. CR and I were the subjects. And since I was new to the whole church life, I didn’t really prep myself for the outreach thing and what was expected of me. One of the leaders spoke to the kids about God’s unconditional love for mankind and I began to reminisce about my Sunday school days. One of the little girls asked a question and imagine the shock when the leader directed it to me to answer. Both Fine Church Boy and Ms. Church Rival were there, their eyes fixed on me, waiting for an answer. It was one of those questions which required a supporting Bible verse and there I was, a Bad Girl Gone Good like me who couldn’t think of one verse to say. Stammering be what?! My throat dried up at once and my body felt like it was on fire.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Ms. CR had to come to my rescue with one of those perfectly thought out sentences. The leader nodded in approval and clapped which everyone joined in.  She gave me a triumphant look but what put me down was the disappointed look on Fine Church Boy’s face. I knew I had failed the test.

When the session ended, I rushed to him just to redeem myself. But he didn’t waste time mincing words.
“I’m sorry but in my journey with God, I need someone who equally walks with Him to be with. It’s obvious church isn’t your thing. I noticed you’ve been coming regularly but you still have a long way to go. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t attracted to you but considering where I’m headed right now, attraction is the least factor I’m interested in.”

So here I was, heartbroken by a church boy even before anything could begin between us. And Ms. Church Rival carried the day, hanging around with him like a trophy girl. I’d be lying if I was harboring murderous thoughts against her.

But I got myself together. I couldn’t go back to my old life; there was nothing left for me there. So I decided to fall in love with the God of the church. After all, He’s called Lover of our soul, right? And I definitely needed some divine loving; I was too broken and I couldn’t mend myself.

With the help of my friend and a few others belonging to the fellowship, I developed a relationship with God and I must say, it has been the best decision I ever made. I felt confident about myself and complete also. For the first time, I felt whole without having to refer myself to being someone’s girlfriend to feel complete. That was a great feeling.

After some months, a rumor broke out about my Fine Church Boy putting Ms. Church Rival in the family way. Church members began to shun him and he looked depressed. I reached out to him and offered my friendship. He was surprised I of all people would be the one to be there for him. So was I, this was a whole new me and I was surprising myself each and every day.

Then the truth came out that the pregnancy wasn’t his after all; it belonged to the guitar guy. Huh, guys will always be guys, right…no matter where you met them. But Church Boy still punished himself for getting involved with her in the first place and he began to feel unworthy to be part of God’s family. I did my best to assure him that all was not lost. I was a perfect example of all hope lost but even I got a second chance with God. As they say, time heals all wounds and so did his.

Months passed and we got engaged. A year later, we got married! I liked a church boy but it was only until I fell in love with his God first before I could fall in love with him. Indeed, all things work for the good for those who love Him…!

Being with you makes me feel magic in the air.
As if the wind blows when I want it to.
I watch our love grow each day
Everyday I get swept away by what you do.
The only thing that matters now is you.
Everything including my breath can melt away.
Provided I can feel your arms around me.

There is no guarantee that life will be easy.
But with you, no wave can't be swept back.
I will always find my way home because of you.
This world has so much to offer
But over all that, I chose it have you.
You are just like a dream to me.
My strength can't fall apart now.

When I look at you, I see forgiveness.
Now I have inspiration that is just enough.
Like a song that has a beautiful melody.
I can't deny wanting you and loving you.
now that am flying way up high, like a bird.
I don't ever want to look down again.

Take me with you; leave me not

See my mind is ready I decided

Am ready yes am sure it time

This is what I want, I need it

Lets run away together forever

Lets wonder the worlds together

My answer is yes; yes am ready.

 

Am told sunsets are all beautiful

And they all always come at day end

But was never told the eye only loves one

My eye saw this one with it I melted

Stood still to the beauty of its presence

It was different, it was not beautiful

It was that which beauty itself is

I won’t let go of this yes am now ready

 

You asked whether my lips speak for me

Whether I hear the words in my song

If the ink flows straight from my heart

And if my soul has really willed to this

You ask if am ready to walk this road

my answer is yes my lips speak for me

yes I hear and have listened to my song

yes my heart authors this ink that flows

yes am ready now and yes will marry you.

They say life is our decisions effect

that which happens by our choices

coming by as good or bad for us

but that we stand with no matter

as we own them; so their effect

so today i will make one of mine

that I shall stand with no matter

Today I choose to tell you my mind’s;

Thoughts,

Dreams,

my heartbeat,

Breathe,

flow of my blood;

tell you of my desire.

Today I make this decision, I choose this life,

today I choose you and you alone

to share with the experiences of life,

you to rise above or even fall with;

you to become or remain here with.

Tell me what to say and that I will

turn my face and there I will look

guide my feet and that path I’ll walk

for am here by choice and I shall stay

as it’s my decision and my choice of life.

You take the breath out of me
It seems this heart of mine can't explain.
The ground beneath my feet freezes,
Yet we hold on tight and stay still.
This place once lonely now feels alive.
If words can't describe this, what can.
I'm only praying that nothing changes.


You are the only joy I had ever known.
A heart once cold now feels warm.
It feels more than just a dream to me.
Having you so close to me feels paying.
I don't have to wait for love no more.
Something had to remind me
Of how great life is and can be.


You make it easier to live everyday
If you ever wonder why I look at you
Well it's because your eyes give me hope.
So charming, bright and stunning.
I cry now looking at the way you love.
How can a person like me deserve you.
And if you ask me now, how it feels
To have you, and to hold you?
I will say, it makes me want to come home.

Should I say or not; tell me,

Tell me now what am to say?

Acquaint my heart with your desires

and my blood shall flow of them.

Read my breath and let this stay.

 

Smile and give me my daily dream,

let it come to life before my eyes

with butterflies, stars floating round

clouds kissing down to the earth.

Keep me in my dream and let this stay.

 

Draw me this moment unending

and let it rest by my heart forever.

Will me this glow that you bare

crow it blandly to my whole being.

Give me you, us and let this stay.

 

Save me and keep me close to you

bestow my life with a purpose to be

and set me out to a new beginning

where I shall have you in my arms

say yes and let this, right here stay.

Since my heart beats to your cadence

My whole then I shall place before you

With mind ready to become with you

feet walk to walks of your direction

eyes vision through your own scopes

ears listen to that your lips speak

nose search for only your flawless scent

and my hand twined to your own

all that is me then shall be yours

 

Let me see to be victorious this day

with my heart’s desire brought before me

and my whole being at peace with it there

come share with me of this the LORD blesses

for he commissioned it be done this way

that my heart shall seek your out

and together with love all we shall conquer

as its he that loves and teaches us

this way I too stand to become like he

to this commitment that I say yes to

that forever I shall become yours each day

and each day I shall forever in him

for in his name I promise you princess.

Take me from all these arms stretched out

Call out to my name, from those at mind

let your lips croon to my ears acceptance

lift my heart with in to a feel of happiness

Say it’s my house where you will lay at dusk

With your head pressed upon my chest

To awake me in dawn with your wonder smile 

And the world shall today open wide for you.

 

Save me today, let me not leave here alone

Open my mind to a fairly land, make me new

Let me walk above all earth’s greatness

And for that moment it shall all be mine

My feet’s’ path shall be any man’s desire

My stand a model for all victory accounts

With you here, it will come still and silent

For history shall only come to speak of us

 

Today, this day is different and so bright

Saw how the skies opened up to the morning

The winds brushed by against the trees

With all swaying rhythmically side to side

Like everything was to a sound of a love song

God must have been listening in last night

That it all comes to now, this moment, you here

truly today is that day I get my feel of happiness.

I gave you passion, trust and love.
All that I had in me.
Now I spend time wondering,
Why did you throw it all away?

Sometimes I think I got to close.
I promised not to drop a tear,
Now that its all clear again,
My cheeks get wet over you.

What ever happened to not fighting?
Working all things out together?
I tell myself its going to be okay.
But you keep walking out the door.

It feels like am awakening from a dream.
And now the angels are disappearing.
Oh gravity! If only I could defy you.
May be I could sleep and dream again.
