I thank God for blessing me with you,
I scream the Lords name out with gratefulness,
I close my eyes and I cry to the Lord with appreciation,
I smile as I pray to the Heavenly Father for the greatest gift I had ever recieved.
Thank you Lord for giving me my Proverbs 31.
When you came into my life on the 5th of December 2011,
I knew you were something special,
I knew there was a reason why God hasnt taken me into the Heavens above,
because He had blessed me with something far greater than Heaven,
It was you.
My Proverbs 31.
I knew you were the one from that moment I saw you,
from that moment when you paused my whole life through one touch,
from that moment when I couldn't believe that you were real,
and not some hope in my imaganation.
I knew you were the one when every bad thing in my life was out of mind
I knew you were the one when God blessed me with my own Proverbs 31.
You showed me real love,
you showed me happiness,
you showed me that the two of us can fight and we will grow stronger together,
you showed me that life can be amazing even through the grey days,
you showed me that you are my Proverbs 31.
I will love you even when my heart stops,
because it will always beat within yours,
I will always protect you,
that I promise you,
I will always have your back just like you have always had my own,
I will cherish the love we share and the moments together,
I will always be there for you
because you are my Proverbs 31.
So I thank you Lord for Lisa,
I promise you I will love her through everything and I will protect her,
because she is Your daughter,
and I promise you that she will be forever safe and forever loved and forever happy.
Thank you Lord for my Proverbs 31.
*this poem is dedicated and inspired to and from Lisa Ndlovu, my first and only love. Thank you for showing me happiness.
Your formidable beauty controls my eyes,
As I try to stare straight through you,
Just seems impossible because I'm distracted by
your gorgeous brown eyes and your amazingly
There's more to you than your beauty,
I felt it when I felt your life changing kiss,
Felt my soul being sucked away,
Making me weak so you can control my mind,
Just so I can be inlove with you,
I released myself from that piercing kiss like
I was hoping to feel different,
Your mind control has got a lock on me now,
I want to be free.
You had full control over me,
You kept my heart beating,
You controlled every thought pattern I had because
it was always about you,
My mind was about you,
My heart beats when I'm around you,
My lungs gasp when I see you,
Let me free!
Let me go,
I don't want to be controlled by you anymore.
I ran away to be free,
But I couldn't understand why I felt so empty,
I felt so lost,
Could you control me from this far?
Maybe I am free and you never had control over
Maybe I was wrong after all this time,
I think I'm inlove with you.
A smile so beautiful it knocks the life out of you,
Leaving you all dazed up,
Like Mike Tyson punching you with a right hook,
You faint from the incredible beauty.
Brown eye's so gorgeous they pierce straight through my dark heart,
Making all this hatred I once had and turn it into joy,
Eyes that save you from death,
You just look straight into them and you know she isn't Medusa,
You turn me into light and not stone.
Her hair is so radiant,
Smooth isn't the texture,
Because that is perfection,
The smell, the feel and the look,
Makes you believe that God blessed her with hair from angels.
You are the definition of beauty but there's way more to you than physical beauty,
You got incredible beauty from the inside,
A pure soul,
A loving woman,
A strong person,
A stubborn attitude,
And a brave heart.
Your inner beauty shines out of you for the world to see physically.
I had lost you,
my only reason for breathing,
so I built a machine,
made with heavy tear drops and a broken heart,
wondering will this really work?
I spent so many years building this machine that might cure my heart,
I only have so little time left.
It was finally built after so many years,
I had no idea the time that had passed,
all the tears that had dripped from my heavy eyes,
the blood pumped through my veins from my warned out heart,
but I shall find you again.
I travel to the past and back to the future,
where are you?
as I wheep my soul dry,
on the edge of giving up like a man ready to jump of a cliff,
I gave one last hope and lost myself in my thoughts,
I travelled forever till I had no time,
last breath I had left,
I closed my eyes and saw your face.
I spent all my life travelling,
when all I had to do was look into my heart because thats where you always were,
right inside my heart,
I smiled as my life ended and I grabbed your hand and we lifted for eternity.
That feeling that takes your breath away faster than any form of beauty ever discovered,
That feeling when your life just lifts into a phenomenon like no other,
That feeling when you glance into this invisible universe,
Just staring into space no one but you can see,
That feeling when you’re heart races and you sweat with temptation,
By the heat of this unexplained situation,
That feeling when you feel like its heaven,
You don't want to be anywhere else but by that incredible vibe,
That feeling when you came into my life and touched my heart with your angelic hands,
That feeling when you kissed me and sucked my living soul out and spat it into the heavens above,
That feeling when you were my distraction,
My invisible universe,
You were the closest feeling to heaven,
You are all I crave.
My heart longs for that burning desire,
My heart longs for you,
I want to be in heaven.
*’That feeling when you glance into this invisible universe,
Just staring into space no one but you can see’
Meaning that no one can see what you are busy day- dreaming.
A smile so bright it makes the sun jealous,
Making the fiery star blaze down with such inferno,
But her smile still makes you feel incredibly hotter,
A smile so incredible it makes the blind see through their hearts,
Only her smile can make the heart see,
A smile so beautiful it makes the flowers blossom in the winter,
Impossible but with a smile like that beauty grows even in the coldest days,
A smile so gorgeous it beats watching the stars and the amazing moon at night,
I'd rather stop and stare and watch your smile change the world.
L-Love only exists when I'm around you,
I-Inside my heart is the rhythm of love, the rhythm of your name,
S-Saving me is exactly what you did when you kissed me back at the park,
A-Although they say love is blind, when I looked into your brown eyes I knew my love for you makes me see,
N-Never will I let you go,
D-Death wont even be able to stop my love for you,
L-Lisa I love you with my life,heart and soul,
O-One day you did walk into my life, the day I knew God was real, as real as my love for you,
V-Vows are words, but touch my heart and hear my heart vow to you through beats that beat out love, love I pursue for you,
U-Understatment is when I say you are amazing, you are way beyond that, there isnt a word created to describe you, you surpass them all.
Dedicated to the love of my life, may Our love grow even through the hardest times. I love you.
I said I do because yes I love you,
But I hate it when you not always around and disappearing into the blue.
I said I do because yes I need you,
But I hate it when you stuck in my mind then disappear out of sight like I'm blind.
I said I do because I want you,
But I hate it when you make me drunk from love then you leave all alone to sober up,
I said I do because I wanted to marry you,
But why do you just leave me all alone?
You give me all this inspiration,
But then leave me speechless,
Forcing me to think out of desperation,
I married you poetry for a reason,
To write like I can blossom in every season.
But you just made stop at random times,
Like the second hand on a giant clock,
Thanks for the love and writers block.
Beauty surrounds me all over,
Angels breathe on top of me,
The Heavens try grab onto me,
While the devil sends Lust upon me,
Goddesses of this universe trying to seduce me with their formidable beauty,
God himself the Gods of all god's,
The alpha and the omega blessed me with everything humanity desired,
I practically can have the world in my hands,
With the moon in my sinful mouth,
And the stars in my innocent eyes,
I could have everything,
But all I want is for you to love me.
‘With the moon in my sinful mouth’, ‘and the stars in my innocent eyes’
Those two lines together represent that people will see and listen to my beautiful lies no matter where I am in the world, I will be heard
I’m not perfect,
But I will love you like you are perfect,
I will marinade your heart in pure love,
Leaving each beat tender and perfectly rare,
I will soothe your heart after demons burnt you with harsh words,
By serving you with a kiss of passion,
Encouraged by looking into your heavenly soul,
I will love you like I’m wealthy,
By caressing you with the richness in my heart,
I will shelter you and your emotions with protection from my love,
My heart will cover you like an umbrella stopping the miserable rain from reaching you,
I will love you like the sun loves the earth,
And I will warm your heart up every day,
I will love you like roses love water,
And I will help you grow into the beautiful person you are destined to be.
I’m not perfect,
But my love for you just seems so perfect,
And I wouldn’t trade that to become perfect,
I already feel perfect.
