The PM Has Landed In Barbados

Posted: August 31, 2010 in Facebook

What a relief, our prayers have been answered and he has been returned safely. We understand that he will still have to observe serious health constraints but there is nothing better than life. The amount of things that people can achieve in just days of commitment is incredible. One year with a great leader is better than a lifetime with a bad one.

 

The
PM Has Landed In Barbados

 

They
say he is back and ready to be

Holding
on to his position, Prime Minister of this country

Every
prayer that was said silent our out loud

Prayers
on Television, Radio, Internet, as individuals or as a crowd

Made
well for the Rt. Hon PM David J.H. Thompson

He
is fit again to Govern this Nation

All
the days now of catching up he first must do

Share
the news filtered before and now give his view

Let
us though not forget that the PM is a man

And
needs time to sort out the chaos and all that he can

No,
let us not forget that he when at his worst

Didn’t
falter, didn’t stumble, kept Barbados
first

Excited
I am of his safe return

Delivered
through God’s mercy and comforts those concerned

I wrote
before that we must pray all our days

Never
stop praying for our leader, Timothy says

Be
sure then friends, don’t stop now

And
pray for all our leaders, just remember how

Race
and gender equality took leaders’ energies

Brave
men and women with special qualities

And
they work tirelessly sometimes in low health

Doing
their best for us and not a love for wealth

Oh
friend the PM’s work is far from done

So
continue your prayers, the healing has just begun

At The Kitchen Sink

Posted: August 31, 2010 in Tenderly

When you tell them you will do the cleaning it is like that is a ready license to all to leave the dishes dirty and not even bother to soak them even when you provide them with a bowl of soap water. I started and after being at the sink for rather long I could take no more and head for the couch but landed in my room.

 

At The Kitchen Sink

 

A lot of
work but I did my best

The water,
it was hard, I got spatters on my chest

Took a
scissors down and cut away a string

Had
troubles and screams turned to crying

Even
though I have been at the sink before

Kept the
counters clear and washed dishes galore

It was a
different experience today

This was
back wrenching and a voice did say

Careful!
Don’t break it but as hard as you can

Hit it,
push it, scrub, wash do anything man

Every
stroke with great intention still nothing to show

Nothing
was happening, the work seemed to grow

So I took
a deep breath and turned to my room

I had
turned off the tap and almost tripped on a broom

No more, I
had no more in me to finish the work I had started 

Kitchen
work is for the stronger ones but not the faint hearted

 

 

 

Long White Shirt

Posted: August 27, 2010 in Love

The night brings tears that dry with the sun and though they are gone the sadness lives on. Then, a sign again that you should have believed, that you could have waited out the storm. They all pass. Sometimes we just have to believe

Long White Shirt

Listless and tired and wanted to be

Over this episode, this tyranny

Nightmare but I was fully awake

Got no rest, I was living another mistake

When day broke and the sun was high

Had no tears left, I cried with eyes dry

I felt cold although the day had great heat

There was no warmth from my weakened heart beat

Eluded before and every time the same

Satisfaction turned from me, contentment never came

Hugged by the long white vest intimately

I thought I would be reminded of the way love hugged me

Reminded no but at last a comforting word

That all is well and to forget all that I had heard

What an experience, the disgust. He came into the store in his palatable façade in the company of a young lady who was obviously a play mate. As they walked around the shop entertaining each other with lustful petting, he found the time to secretly flirt with one of the girls behind the counter. In fact, as he embraced his play mate, he looked over her shoulder and scour the attendant from head to toes with hopes of having her return some attention. It was his intention to find an attendant who showed interest today and subsequently return to her when he is alone. And one day his bait will catch. My friend examine Psalm 101

Psalms One Hundred and One

Praise will I sing of your judgment and mercy

Sing to you Lord and behave perfectly and wisely

And when will thou Lord be here

Lord I’ll walk in my perfect house until you draw near

Mine eyes shall stray from all wickedness

Shall not cleave to the men I hate, the faithless

Obstinate hearts shall from me depart

No wicked person or evils with me can start

Everyone that slanders their neighbor privately

Him will I cut off from me

Uncouth people with proud hearts and haughty eyes

Never should I endure their devious guise

Dwelling with me shall be the faithful of the land

Righteous men shall my way command

Evil doers and those who practice deceit

Dwell not in my house or in my house meet

And he that telleth lies

Neither shall he tarry in my eyes

Destroying early in the morning, shall I the wicked of the land

Obliterate all evildoers by the might of His hand

No more shall they walk with devious accord

Evildoers shall I cut off from the city of the Lord

Psalms 101

Today I celebrate the birthday of my beloved. It was on this day that she was brought into this world and on that date that my world was destined to be different. When I got ill I knew that I was going to lose the evenings and nights we spent together. I knew the morning saying bye and the zealous hello would be gone, for quite some time.

She Was Next, Without Warning

Sad how she passed away

Heart broke when I was ill that day

Eyes met mind and she questioned why

We were separated so long and I never said bye

An emergency got me admitted back then

She never knew why I didn‘t return, didn’t know when

Nothing but sorrow for the 3 weeks I stayed

Encephalomyelitis was first diagnosed and my family prayed

X-rays and MRIs, CAT scans and a litany more

Tested me for weeks and months before

We were able to diagnose the dreaded MS

I was taken back by the results of their tests

Then I was moved by the presence of life

How important to be fulfilled with a husband or wife

Only I was married to my 9 to 5, actually early morning ‘til night

Unable now to work I was divorced during my convalescing fight

The things that truly mattered were obvious to me

Work was not as important as the love of a family

And the friendships we amass over the years

Relationships that last beyond life’s despairs

Now, how ever tragic I was, she was critical too

In the Vets hands she was delivered and I never said adieu

Never expected she would be gone for more than a day

Got shocked when I learned that my best friend had passed away

When Roses Bloom

Posted: August 23, 2010 in Happy Birthday Rose Bud

Today is the Birthday of another one of those very special people who were born on this day some years ago. Recently I started respecting the need to keep your name hush. I did for many years because it was necessary if people were to take me seriously. Now, I have seen people who are half my age behaving as mature as I am.

When Roses Bloom

With an earnest heart I pray that she

Has the many blessings God promised will be

Everyone’s who lives in a righteous way

Never yielding to temptation and His word obey

Roses are but one, oh so many and neither science or sorcery

Or any means known to man can create God’s beauty

Such wonders He gave us and promises in time

Even mightier things would be prime

So for her my sister in Christ and true friend

Because she will endure to the end

Let her know as she walks your righteous path

On you Lord she can trust and be spared your wrath

Oh friend as that heart beats inside you I offer this pray

May your Birthday be blessed and better each progressive Birthday

Here is your Birthday Card

On This Special Day

Posted: August 23, 2010 in Happy Birthday Truly Wise

This Acrostic was written for the third person in my life born on this very special day. Did I say person, well one of them was my favorite Akita who is now decease, but the memories she left behind still lives on. My now triplet of important people is constant reminders of the love and joy people can bring. This young lady has touched me in a very special way and I wish here many, many blessed birthday to come.

On This Special Day

Oh! And if only I could make you smile

Not about old jokes or new ones but in my style

To smile heartedly from your inside out

Have pleasure taking the time to smile with no doubt

I share smiles each day with others I know

Sometimes trusting they keep them wherever they go

Show these too to your friends, I would say

Peace should follow along your way

Every probability I tame into controlled outcomes 

Carved into likenesses each one without thumbs

I forged from real features a long time before

A smile that last, though tears felt to endure 

Looked just like how you do each time, you dear,

Dare to smile and show them looking on how you care

And so I wish today, I’ll stimulate a smile to last forever

Yes my lovable Tanya smile away, God made you like no other!

SMILE

Tied And Cried

Posted: August 21, 2010 in Love

I was walking my young dog recently and he was happy all along. He had taken to the chain and understood what it meant to have it on. When I lead he follows and he walks at my side. It is like a dancing team. But he is still very young and everything still must be explained. When I tied the chain on the front gate to give him some sun from a bath, I left and although he didn’t bark he protested with his leaps and somersaults. You see I used the chain now for bondage and not for the pleasure anymore. Now he see the chain and no longer feels a desire.

Tied And Cried

The sun is up and smiling so why can’t I

I’m filled with love but still I cry

Even the birds their singing is noise to me

Don’t care for the flowers or the large Bearded Fig tree

 

A cold breeze is blowing although the sun shines bright

No more can I go on singing, I haven’t the might

Didn’t smell the fresh fragrance in the morning air

 

Can’t enjoy the sounds of laughter every where

Rain come, we are kinship, it’s easy to see

I have dark clouds circling and tears fall intermittently

Even though the sun is out and climbing high

Deep down inside I can hear the day saying good-bye

I Am Wishing For You To Come

Posted: August 20, 2010 in Love

When you walk through the food court in the Mall, the folk if they are not very busy, sometimes offer samples of what you might buy. It is possible to read the menu but there is nothing like a sample. The trouble with sampling too many dishes only leads to difficulty deciding. When all of the samples have something special that you just can’t forget them, the choice becomes impossible. The same is true for love. Until you are able to commit, all of the flowers out there seem to offer something special. Best you not expose yourself to the choices but rather decide that what you have is great. There will always be things that distract your attention

I Am Wishing For You To Come

I closed my eyes and I saw you


And when I opened them it’s just like I knew

My eyes see what’s in my heart but you are not here


Wishing and wishing but you never appear

I closed my eyes again but this time to pray

Send her Father if only for a day

How incredible, so unbelievable but when I opened my eyes

It was the most beautiful surprise

Not long, just passing one night only to spend

Got commitments bidding to return until the end

 

For now we can spend precious time together

One night holding, just cuddling each other

Rain had fallen and I cried that day

 

Yesterday was the same but today I knelt to pray

One day, please Lord to hold my love again

Until sunrise the next morning and there’ll be no more rain

 

Then love said tomorrow I must go

One more day without you is torture I know

 

Can you please save the celebrations until that day when

Our hearts are forever together and then

My departure tomorrow wouldn’t hurt as before

Embrace me now but soon we’ll celebrate forevermore

Can’t A Message Please

Posted: August 20, 2010 in Tenderly

What if after all the trouble of staying in touch with friends,  when you need them most they are off enjoying themselves and you are unable to reach them. I felt the pain as it got worse and I wanted to share it with my friends but I gad obviously chose the worst time. Please can someone please take this message to love.

Can’t A Message Please

Cold nights and long hot days

And I spend these in tormented ways

Nothing awaits me but a repeat

The nights and days are the same, nothing new to meet

At times I close my eyes to hear

My love’s voice when love was near

Eyes tightly closed and like dreams

Such memories shoot and you are here it seems

So I escaped but not for long

A moment only and like Jacko’s song

Gone too soon, then I tried again

Eyes closed tightly then tears like rain

Pillow gets wet and I turned it

Like I had turned it before out of habit

Every side now wet, I stared through the air

And I wished that love could return here

So long, now lost in time, then I

Eyes closed. Can’t A Message Please be taken to love before I die?
