MY FIRST KISS – POEM

My innocent heart was already at his mercy,

Yet he did more damage with his searching looks,

Our eyes did meet

At that point my heart he blew away,

For split seconds I stood numb,

Trying to digest his words.

 

Who wouldn’t love Jerome?

I am a lady not given to men,

But he struck a special chord,

My heart is filled with fantasied junk,

But never a man with this much charm.

 

Nature didn’t help matters either,

The moon and stars were in full bloom,

Making it the perfect love scene,

In shyness slowly I bowed my head,

He didn’t hesitate to request again…..”KISS ME”

 

MY FIRST KISS would be at the priest’s command,

I’ve always treasured that,

But Jerome has shown me love and care,

How dare I hurt him now?

In fact he just proposed!!

 

As I pressed my tender lips against his,

That was the last I had a choice,

I became conscious of me again,

Only in the pool of mine own blood,

Jerome what have you done?

 

Like the Cupid’s arrow came his words,

Against my fragile soul,

“I have done nothing, we only had fun”

He chuckled and clapped his hands,

We were not alone, out came his friends

Singing praises of him!!

 

As they made to go he said to me

“Keep the ring if you so please”,

With a heroic smile he pointed to my stomach,

“Make sure you name him Val”!!

I couldn’t say a word as hot tears caressed my checks!!

My Humble Summation as we Witness Another Christmas

kccc

Throwback to some years ago, I always looked forward for Christmas seasons, reasons been that, I saw it as times where I get to eat plenty “good food” & meat, wear “Christmas clothes”, see relatives I haven’t seen in a while, embarked on various visits, travels, adventures & journeys. I also realized that people were unusually generous during the season, so I get quite a good sum of freebies then. Hence Christmas was always what keeping my eyes on the road for.

Today as I grow older, I see people with many motives, intentions & reasons for Christmas. Just like poor me, most of their rationale are good but are not the reason for the season.
I watched people caught in the mist of activities, the glamour, celebration without the Celebrant in the picture. Shame.

Long story cut short, my humble summation as we witness another Christmas period, I will encourage us to:
1. Look beyond activities and see The reason for the season. (JESUS)
2. See this period as an opportunity to reflect Christ. (What Will Jesus Do WWJD).
3. Not just share gifts with friends and love ones but to give them the ultimate Gift of salvation (Jesus)
4. Make our world better; Add JESUS….

Merry Christmas.
