Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas my love It’s another day we sing God’s blessings Distance may separate us but God’s love is the same everyday Distance memories occupy my mind Distance thoughts of our first good Friday walk Our first kiss on that lovely Sunday All ringers in my mind as I write this Naive you were if not drunk with love Foolish I was if not a fool I was To think I could win a woman like you First without a job Second without money Third without an overflowing wallet But God made His way felt in us Not money nor my account won your heart For despite my failures; God won me your heart Yes without a single shilling Yes without any candle lite dinner Yes without even a single date God did the impossible for me possible You left your rich boyfriends for me You forgot about class and started low in the society But slowly pride grew You forgot where God took us from Without applying for a job I got one Without even any experience You witnessed God raise me up the success ladder But you became cold and started been distracted Because you started believing am sleeping around I didn’t need to for God watched over me I didn’t have to for you were enough for me But pride later on destroyed us both Today am not single because you only cheated And you defiled our bed No;am serving for my sins that I committed while you were my wife Sins i could easily avoid but I didn’t Regretfully I have suffered family rejection Regretfully I pity the life our son is living Regretfully I fear that Christmas at your home Is just a day of wishful thinking because You are always scolded for making me your decision One day God willing you and I shall be called to testify What sin or error did we do that is not forgivable What sin did our son commit to know rejection and depression What error is this that you can’t ask for pardon What Christians are we that we substitute even what can’t be changed Divorce or separation of couples is a no go zone This is just a pile of wishful thinking But reality is in your heart and mine...
