Chapter One

FRIENDSHIP

The beauty of friendship is yours to treasure your whole lifetime through. The friendship you make today is yours to treasure for all eternity

Sincerity

Love, Truth and Sincerity
It's Touching lives with unconditional generosity
Neighbor, family, acquaintance and friend
Honesty and compassion, heart to heart to send
The gift of a hug, a smile and a warm kiss
Promises of anger and envy to dismiss
Loving and caring for each other
With open arms, Always for Always to be a pillar
Let words blend to sound like a beautiful song
To encourage, to lift and make each other strong
Truth in words and also shown through action
Be there for someone in victory as well as when he has fallen
Let authenticity be ingrained in your personality
From in the mind, let your deeds transcend beauty
To everyone you meet in society
This is the power of true Sincerity!


There is Nothing I Wouldn't Do

If a tear would wipe all your pain away, I would cry it
If a touch will give you the strength you need, by your side I will sit
If a kind word would make your day,
I would deliver it daily to you on a tray
If a friend in life is what you need
I'll run to be just that at lightning speed
If all you need, is not to be found right here
I would search until I find it near or in the distance every where
I will be your friend in the darkest moments
I'll be your rock bottom; I'll be your summit
I'll give it all if that is what it takes
If only I can for your happiness sake


Friend

When the person you are looking for is nowhere to be found
I'll be your foot stand, your believer & solid ground
If you feel your life is running around in circles
I'll pray with you to get your gifts, those showers of miracles
If your heart gets frozen with hurt like cold Popsicles
I will embrace you with warmth and protect you from love's debacles
In Saying hello & also goodbye- all we have to share is our time
As deep as the seas, I'll swim; as high as the Mountains I'll rigorously climb
To get closer to dream, a friendship goal to last for a Lifetime

How much do I care dear friend I hope you to know
That all my life, I have respectfully loved you so
And to the end of the earth & back for you I would in an instant go
To keep you safe, and protect your steps, all this & more I would do
Never lose sight of the hand that has your back
When you are lost, I'll be there to help you back on track
Because all my life, from then to now; it's you that I adore
Sensitivity, tenderness, a listening air
These I give, for me- these are core
For a friend my heart could never call foe

I will always be here, to tell you when you're wrong and also when you're right
I have seen your heart rejected, I was wrong to give up without a fight
After years, I wonder to love you if you would say I might

How happy I'd be every day, every night
I'd care for you with dignity & pride
All my affections I'll pour out, never an ounce to hide
Your entire world, I'd paint in color, never plain as black & white
I love you!


Not only a Person

You are not only a person you are also my friend
I want you to know that on me you can always depend
Your secrets and fears, l will keep secure
Heartfelt Dreams and aspirations with you I share
As Love in my heart for you grows more & more
The days spent with you I treasure
Wishing only that time was our leisure
To share moments of truth & love that cannot be measured
As I go it's good to know that you're here
Similarly for you, I'll always be there about you my friend I sincerely do care
So when you are troubled & in despair
Find me; you're broken spirit I'll repair
When you're happy and full of glee
I'll smile a smile for you, hoping you'll see
You are more than a person; you're a special friend to me
I am sending you a hug and giving you a kiss
Your presence I am definitely going to miss
Distance will not be our enemy
Between us there'll be love and no envy
Take care friend and I wish you well
A special place in my heart, you'll forever and ever dwell
Love you! You special person, a true & trusted friend


The Beauty of People

The beauty of life is in the people we meet
Some are short, some are tall, black or white most are all a treat
A helping hand, a comforting word
They keep you hanging on to life's chord
Who are the people we meet?
Friends or strangers, some are loving, some are sweet
Inviting smiles, gentle touches inspiration that means so much
At anytime it's good to know that their shoulders you were able to touch
Some are kind, some are pure
They protect & keep you secure
Some are angels standing by your side
The good, the bad, there's a clear divide
Some are warm, always giving, never taking
Of your faults, they are accepting
Man or woman, young or old
These are the people to have & to hold
Some they stay with you to the end
When in need, with you their knees too will bend
These are the ones you keep, they call themselves friends
Upon meeting these people or even such a person
Your life is filled with beauty, it doesn't worsen

    Let's

    Let's say hello & ask how are you?
    Let's make suffering very few
    Let's never say goodbye
    Let's never act shy
    Let's never forget the past
    Let our relationships last
    Let's run towards the future
    Let's love all beautiful creatures
    Let's together walk hand in hand
    Let's each other understand
    Let's embrace each new day
    Let's friends we forever stay
    Let's live like there's no tomorrow
    Let's love and end the sorrow
    Let's sing a happy song
    Let's make love all night long
    Let's have children plenty
    Let's bank to have some money
    Let health & wealth fall at your feet
    Let's make everyday a brand new treat
    Let's paint a rainbow in the sky
    Let's never ask if, but or why
    Let's remember to say our prayers
    Let's be prepared to meet the rainmaker
    Let's be kind
    Let's appreciate all mankind
    Let's be brave, let's be strong
    Let's be fair and right all our wrongs
    Let's be encouraging
    Let our words be inspiring
    Let our actions not be humiliating
    Let our life's work be fulfilling
    Let's promote honesty and truth
    Let all our hard work bear fruit
    Let's not live a life of regret
    Let's be thankful for life & death
    Let's live & love each other
    Let's respect one another

Forever Friend


I close my eyes and reminisce of our sweet encounter
Adrenalin flowing, a gush of heat, nothing better I would have rather
A 'friendship' lost but in a moment rekindled
The taste of passion with uncertainty intermingled

Through your eyes, I felt your touch and in an instance knew your thoughts
The thrill of my bodily contact, my embrace, my caresses are all you sought
There wasn't a night that passed; I didn't yearn for the closeness of you
To lie next to a man that's gentle, caring, his feelings he never subdued.
When will I see you next? Will time erase the memory of your touch?
Or will the flame of desire keep burning to one day explode and give
that burning rush
To experience it, I have no choice but to wait till then
You in my arms, I in yours, the joy of intimacy shared between us friends
You say I am your 'trouble', but what does it mean
Is it that you prefer to see me only but in a dream?

I'll awake you with kisses as soft as my skin
And let you know if you knock at my heart's door, I'll gladly let you in
Whenever you need me, you have only to call my name
Although distance separates us, one thing remains the same
A special friend in me is what you'll have- in that you can believe
With open arms, my embraces are yours to keep, hold & to receive


Stranger

I met a stranger; he took me as a friend
We spoke for a brief moment; the conversation seemed to have no end
He gently took my hand and mentioned his name
For a moment, I felt we were connected, one in the same
It was a comforting moment that for instant, faded my troubles
A gentle voice that softly calmed all my worries

As a stranger, I wondered how he knew just what I needed
Care, openness, tranquility, an aura of gentleness is what he provided
He held my hand and for a while his shoulders became my head rest
With a gentle smile and warm caress, my head smothered lowly to his chest
I wondered to myself where this fellow all my life has been
Or whether he would remember me after then
For a moment, I was lost, my mind drunken with sin

I must be dreaming as a victory such as this, I know it couldn't be mine to win
But a stranger came in and renewed me from within
On my heart, in my mind, an indelible mark his care did spin
Youthful, well groomed with a captivating smile
I'm glad we were friends if only just for a while


The Friend I had

It's lost, it's gone, and I just cannot find it
I have searched through my hearts pages, looking for the deficit
Where did it go, what were the signs?
That seems to end a friendship so powerful, so true, and so divine
I saw him once from a glance and knew I wanted him for me
A beautiful friendship, comfort, love was all I wanted but that he didn't see
What should I do, Should I now say what I feel?
His heart and thoughts he has kept close, choosing never to reveal

I remember days of love, nights of laughter
Occasions when time and companionship was our only master
But love is no more; it eludes me it's so hard to recover
Being replaced by tension, despair and growing anger
I had it; but it has slipped through my hands
Compassion, commitment, dedication was needed-now I understand

Many times our hearts feel what our lips will never say
And we miss the beauty in life with each passing day
Today may be lost but there is always hope for us to borrow
Why should we continue to drown ourselves in yesterday's sorrow?
When there is courage and strength in the promise of each & every
tomorrow

Our lives have changed, our paths have narrowed
An emptiness upon my life our growing distance devours
I still dream of sharing special moments of devotion
As I choke with memories of our heartfelt emotion
That is dismissed, gone with the wind
Years of missed opportunities we cannot rescind

Seems all that's left is to bid you well,
Cause in your heart, thoughts of a life with me no longer dwells
So now, I'll close the door
Wishing you an abundance of happiness that extends across the ocean's floor
I met you once- who could ask for more
You added to my beauty, my being and my life's décor
You, the Friend that I had!


Friendship's Circle

No matter the years, no matter the distance
Whenever you need me, I'll be there in an instance
Through life's fears, in all your tears
My dearest friend, please know that I will always be there
In all you do, I will support, & show you that I care
Because in my heart you are precious & most dear
I will never leave you, no matter what
Love, patient, sensitive & true - I will be all of that
I'll always be by your side
For our friendship has no divide
If you need me to carry you
I will lift and do my best to pull you through
To your heart, I am that gate keeper
While you sleep, I am your shield & protector
I will build a circle around you to keep you safe and warm
Whenever you need love & comfort, I will embrace you in my arms
Our friendship will thrive, it shall never end
Oh sweet friend of mine, on me you can depend


Journey with Me

Come go with me to another place
Where tranquility reigns and pain erase
Where true friendships come a dime a dozen
And time in godly grace is forever frozen

Come go with me to never land
Where people's differences we understand
Where life is filled with beautiful flowers
And the days are filled with sunshine hours
Where all there's are smiles and laughter
And lots of love to be given ever after
Where gentleness and grace fills human character
And nothing but happy times matter
Come go with me hand in hand
Life's experiences splendid and grand

LOVE

Love is happiness beyond compare. Love is what we all need; it's like the air you breathe. It gives a sense of purpose and a reason to live so love freely, give it openly and willingly and let it reside peacefully and beautifully in your heart. Love fosters harmony, happiness and beauty.

Only You

You are so special, really one of a kind
A golden treasure so rare, exquisite & hard to find
Beautiful, pure, genuine and true
There's hardly a one as sweet as you
I marvel at your charm, your personified grace
Oh how I love to see your angelic face
In the mornings, evenings and even at nights
Even with your faults, I love you despite
Without a doubt, I am branded you
Loving you for all eternity, I have absolutely no issue


Sweet Angel

Come to me like an angel in the night
Whisper sweet words, watch my spirit take flight
Sing me a song, play your sweet melody
Come close, let's waltz the time away

Immerse yourself in me & I'll do likewise
Forget our troubles- lost in time
We'll tell stories of days gone by
Lovers we are but distant shy
Angel of mine, you are to me so close
With your gentle ways, your calmness, my spirit you have arouse
Angel, take flight hovering high above the sky
Lift me higher; around the world with you, I will fly

Sweet Angel of mine
You are to me so divine
Hand in hand, in my heart you reside
In you, my secrets I will confide
Because you keep love's flickering flame alive
Together, forever we now decide
To meet, to dream, never leaving my side


Question of the heart

Dear lover and closest friend
A full life together I thought we were destined
Your sweet perfume from my heart has suddenly departed
And have left me desolate & broken hearted
What became of your promise to be kind and tender hearted?
Is it that the depth of my passion left you bewildered & frightened?
Or was it the commitment and progress in our relationship that I requested?
Could it be the kids that I had that you never wanted?
Or was it your time that I yearned for & love that I demanded?
Would you return if all these wrongs I would have righted?
Are these the reasons the distance and closeness of our friendship has widened?

I'm lonely; I miss the tower of my strength
With you, for you, I'd run, I'd go through many a length
To re-awaken a dream that comforted my side
And regain a friendship that with me, in me, around me, above me had
resided!
What would it take to rekindle the love & stop the divide?
Will there come a time I'd hear your footstep glide
Step by step in rhythm with mine to lead and to guide?
How can I draw you into my arms to lie beside?
Tell me have I lost that solemn place, my privilege of being above all women?
Tell me gentle just how can I lure you into my love web once again?
Is it possible you will return to radiate my days?

What remains of the vow to take my pain away?
What would it take to get you back & make you want to stay?
Have you forgotten the pledge to trust & always obey?
Should I just forget about love's quest, our journey and watch the years
go by?
I long to suckle you to my breast and return my heart to eternal rest
The days spent with you was life at its best


Desire

Your presence overwhelms me with desire
The long embrace for a moment I felt my life expire
It's like I died right there in your arms
The wanting of more, your kisses, your passion, all your charm
The Love that you give keeps me from falling apart
I'm standing on solid ground, beauty and happiness; it feels like a brand
new start
Every night I laid on your chest, it was for me a haven of infinite rest
Heartbeat to heartbeat, soul to soul, those days for me were simply the best.

I've dreamt of times like these and in my mind I knew just what I would do
Hold you, squeeze you and confess all my desires of you that are oh so true
Then it happens and I get lost in a trance
Fears and anxiety have caused me to lose a glorious chance
Of loves' expressions and the release of imprisoned emotions

For years my life's been tangled with thoughts of sweat mixed with loves'
injection
We speak, we look but there's no action
I'm praying for a moment to act even if only by sanction
Do you feel the same or am I alone acting on faith
Give me a sign; tell me for us it's not too late
Has our many years apart ended a fantasy
Will your heart open to mine to fulfill our destiny Or
will time demand more time to wait

Oh my sweet love, your life, I'll color with beauty
And your happiness till the end of time, I will make
Eternal Joy and a fiery passion with laughter is here for you my dearest
to take
