A Sweet Proposal (Poem No. 606)

"I've seen the half of the world,
But non as beautiful as you
That captivate my eyes and soul just for you.
You are different creature among others,"
That make you like the lighthouse
That set on the conspicuous hill.
I give up on chating all the time.
Because I can't win your heart
So stoney, and hard for me.
The truth is,

"Since I meet you I never intended to be friend with you.
I like you a lot, but I'm push aside since from the start".

"Since long you are in my mind my sweet heart".
I can't get you off from my thought and heart.
The more I try to forget you, as per your advice to forget;
The deeper I fall for you and my heart cries for your grace;
And the more I long for your sweet embrace.

As per your advice,
To settle down and take a wife;
And stop teasing a star that so far;
Nor play the easy catch among
The forbidden fruit of the vine;

Finally I listen; I tied the nut
with in the family; and produce
Three children as the result
Of this union together.

Certainly there is joy
beyond measure
with in the family circle.
But the happiness
did not last long
When tragedy occur;
The lost of my wife
It changes it all.

Now again I 'm back,
And reminding you,
A good friend has responsibility
To care to one another.
Now therefore I beg you
To consider my request;
"Would you marry me please".
"I give you all the guarantees".
"I will let you meet my families";
"Just be my companion in life partner that I wish".

"For now I will go to sleep,
I leave it to you to think,
But please consider
My serious request";
Be a mother to my kids".

It's an honor to be ask
But I'm graduated to raise a child;
So my friend open your eyes
Don't waste your time
Searching for a wife
In a far away distance;
You can find them in your
Home land.



Dedicated to my long good friend
On line since he was single till he got married by my advice.
Putting together our conversation lol.

Few months he lost his wife in car accident; While she was driving with her young son on the way to check her farm,
A truck hit her small car in the back. The child injected out from the vehicle; fortunately he survived; they were rushed to the hospital, But after few days, the mother did not make it . She was laid to rest leaving the three young children, motherless.Very devastating news. My heart sunk for my friend and his family. As a friend I tried to comfort him
That God is in control just trust in Him though we never understand why He permit this things to happen.
Though we never see Gods hands, nor see His plan,
We just trust in His Heart,
For He alone knows whats best
For our lives. Everything happened for a reason.
