Ode to My Husband

Ode to My Husband
What a wonderful, magical surprise! Sometimes love arrives in disguise. I never saw this coming, never anticipated such an awesome blessing. I was at the right place, when I spied your sweet, handsome face. It was at the right time, calling your goddess was a sign and I knew you were mine. I had been a sad, little bird with no songs to sing, with only broken wings, working my way through some hurtful things.
But you came along, a real man, offering me strong, broad shoulders to lean on. It was a slow process getting back on track, but you willingly took the burden off my back. You showered me with loving attention, tenderness, kindness, and consideration. Nurturing and cherishing me each step of the way, you build my confidence and trust each day. Thank you for helping my fragile heart to mend; thank you for helping me become whole and to love again!

Ode for John

How could you leave your loving bride?
Cut down in youth, still in your prime
Your rare blood disease appeared suddenly
Just four years of bliss till you were taken from me

When first I saw your face, those blue eyes stunned
So many adored you, but your kind heart I won
Just by showing you love and sharing our joy
Even my mama worshiped my special, sweet boy

Death seems to take the finest too soon
Their faces smile in stars embracing the moon
One day we shall be reunited, my love
Until then, I search for comfort in night sky above

Comfort comes quickly when his spirit visits
I see his eyes twinkling, how could I miss it
Whenever I pull a fresh fish from the sea
A worthy fisherman, John would be pleased

When I'm feeling down I need only resurrect
Precious memories of John I cherish and protect

*John was my beloved husband.  Elegy in honor of Dr. Ram's contest.

Ode to a rose on a sunset

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
as the clouds dip into the sea.
A kiss from that rose as the waves fall,
over the beach to a rose kissed me.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
as we wrap in lovers embrace.
A kiss from a rose as homeward we go,
to a bed clothed in satin and lace.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
with passion and warmth do we grasp.
A kiss from that rose that blossoms and blooms,
my hand in her labour pain clasp.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
that wanton and curvy young bride.
A kiss from that rose that huddles our babe,
so loving, in motherly pride.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
without whom I'd not share my life.
A kiss from that rose who selflessly filled,
the place of my darling rose wife!

Pink Pink Pink

Once in my life, breast cancer, I did not know.
Which was lost, and what would be gained.
I could not see, beyond her glow
Faith and strength carried and remained.
Unfinished things of her dreams come slow
These were not to be lost, our love holds true
Loss of her alluring game would not matter, I did say
In life and love, she is stuck to me with glue
She is more than any loss, which may take away.

Pink in October shapes her autumn sky.
More beautiful now she faces its lie.
Sunshine wakes her in a moonlights lure.
Fighting like a girl, she wins the war.
Dancing as a woman she captures pink ardor.
She is more than a woman, my lady, my love.
Pink, pink, pink color beyond her despair,
Trials and tribulations, rising glow,
She has won her fight; in the pink, breast cancers beware.

The dying wish of a pregnant womanThe only wish of a lovely husband

She happily clad in that white 
ball gown
He looking good in a black tux
Getting married in a church 
Writing vows in a rush

Excited about the first implant
Fantasies of the romance
Roses afloat in their hearts
Convivial a baby with a warm 

Nuptial bands-on on each left 
It’s a pledge to the death
In labor_she wished for her life
Beside her_he wished for their 

She died later
What is your woman?
An ampoule for the child
That soft pink matter.

He Is

He is my personal hot water bottle, 
He keeps my feet warm in bed,
He makes the best cup of tea ever, 
He is the guy I wed!
He supports me through my troubles,
He helps me face my fears,
He stands by me through thick and thin,
He wipes away my tears!
He laughs at me when I’m silly,
He turns a frown into a smile,
He provides for me & our boys;
He goes that extra mile!
He doesn’t seem to realise,
He is extremely special to me,
He is My Loving Husband,
He is all I want him to be!

Ode to The Man Who Left Me

Seeing you still the same but different
Changes only my eyes could understand
Walked pass the noised hallways
Your eyes wore meaning, I couldn’t find solace.

I walked behind you trolling
The familiar blueprint of your physique
Had me palpitating but my heart was crawling
How could I un-love my everything?

Recalling the days that expanded the minute
The pain I felt, the trauma I’m in it
Cursing the living and longing for death
The pain is endless, lose my breath

Your finger marks the ring you’re missing.
A sight so lethal but what is it you’re really losing?
Life is worth smiling when it’s simple
You made it complicated, now I am in crumble

If space and time is what you’re weary.
Be fearless and blanket my fury
I am a lady without a man
Bring me thorns with a rose petal
I’ll give you a seed that grows medal.

Ode to Mr. Anonymous

The sweet sound of his voice,
filling the air.
Letting me know,
 He'll always be there,
The sweet smell of his breathe,
And his cologne that's so sweet.
Always seeming to knock me off my feet.
I see his sweet face.
I get lost in my thoughts.
He seems so perfect.
Like theres nothing  that could go wrong,
But as I sit and I think.
I keep on wondering, why?
How could this angel,
really be mine?
He's sweet and he's caring.
He reassures me his thoughts.
Making me feel like,
The happiest girl on the block.
I'll love Mr. Anonymous, 
Even when I'm gone.
I hope our love,
Forever flies on.

Thank you.....

How can I thank you for living with me
 and loving me for all these years,
How can I thank you for helping me cope
 with an illness that leaves me in tears,
How can I thank you for making me laugh
 for filling our marriage with fun,
How to say thanks for the most precious gift
 of a beautiful daughter and son,
It's all I can say, but it is from my heart,
 the moment I met you, I knew,
That, if I lost you, I'd just fall apart,
 because I'm not complete, without you

What I like about you

What I like about you

Your silly voice when you awake, 
Or your cute face when I bake a cake, 
Your one sock falling off when you sleep,
And the funny sound you make me you leap,
When it’s cold and you curl up in a ball, 
Or your polite way you always take a call,
I like that you are always true, 
Always friendly and always you.

My Husband Twenty-five Years 8th edition

He pushes me towards my goals,
He encourages me to chase my dreams,
He champions my poetry,
He makes me laugh, 'til I burst my seams.
He builds me up,
He picks me up when I fall,
He teaches me to appreciate life,
He make mes feel ten feet tall.
He tells me I can be, all I want to be,
He gives me so much hope,
He stands by my side,
He helps me when I can't cope.
He makes fun of me,
He puts up with my aches and pains,
He listens to my troubles,
He laughs when I'm being insane.
He makes me feel proud,
He brews an awesome cup of tea,
He lets me warm my feet on him,
He is the only man for me.

Ode To Women

I cant figure out why women are such a puzzeling sex to men.
I think its like the three letter word, we say when, and you say how long
has it been?

I especially love it when they say " oh I'm not high maintenance" and 
I need to get this and that done as we scratch our heads and say is it me
or is she the only one.

When we go out we pick any old thing we have on hand, and women say
"Oh I have to get something new" and it probably cost more than our wedding

We guys go and spend ten bucks on a haircut and a shave, but when you go its 
an all day affair and cost so much I have to ask for a raise.

So men we are left to ponder and sworn to never concede,
but I find its easier not to argue and just give them what they need.

Love Described

As if painted by Monet
Love delicate and soft  
Soaring upon angel wings

I found my heaven in you

Your words evoking lyrics 
Tempering my tormented soul
Soothing sweet symphony

Emotion pure and true

Awakened less my agony
A thunderbolt to the heart
Sparks of passion set ablaze

Searing fire, flames of blue

Craving for caress
Overwhelming all five senses
Temptatious are your kisses

Like the sirens of the sea

Absolute devotion
Undertaker of imperfection
I dance with exaltation

As your arms envelope me

The quintessence of man
Vindicated from past sin
Vanishing all fears

My one and only

KMS-unf..(ode to Lauryn Hill)

Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his words
Killing me softly and it hurts
Killing me softly So come home

Momentary relapses down memory lane
got me singing songs like "i'm going down" to erase the pain
why dont you come home you know ain't Shiit changed
I still wear my panties pretty
still want you to rub and suck my ...
still want to make out in the middle of the club like we caught in the Matrix
I know you need some time but damn I hate this
why when I see you all I want to do is strip
but not so you can fuq me just so you can see i'm all the woman you need

It's obvious to see we're not done 
even though the thought of commitment makes you run
it's still fun to get that feeling all over like butta flyz is kung foo fighting in my 
Frontin like i'm not feeling you is my only sin

The Way To See Heaven

They say the way to see Heaven,
is look to the skies.
Yet, all I have to do
is look into your eyes.

Your heart is pure;
Your heart is true.
That is why I
fell in love with you.

I see your love
when our eyes meet
I feel your  love
with so much heat

  I feel your love
when my heart skips a beat
I feel it when it
knocks me off of my feet

 I will love you
till the end,at my death
I will love you,
till my very last breath.

Ode to a Wife

Wife, you are a quilt
A lasting duvet of my soul 
At winter nights
You warmed me when I felt cold
You embraced me when I needed an embrace
You fed me when I came home 
From work, late and hungry
Kind-heartedly, you’ve quenched my thirst
Now that you’re worn
Here I am, and, I wanted to say
Let me, your husband, be the quilt
A lasting duvet… for you, and 
For my unborn heir

Ode to Eve

in your warmth, woman, 
   is soft, soulful serenity,
      as you stoke the amber
         embers of my mortality;

triumphs I've  lost,  losses 
   I've gained, untold sufferings,
      but you soothe, you hush down
         all these hurt reminiscings,

as I grope, as I fumble about 
   where this daydreaming leads,
      but as you gaze upon my soul,  
         fears are wind-blown weeds!

Speak My Love

Speak to me, my love, of the dawn
With amber rays that grace the fields…
That our concealed dreams, be now revealed
Grace mine ears with sweet praise 
Of your honeyed lips…

Oh, speak of love
That adorns the lands,
Take hold of mine hand ~
Flight of doves
Concede... as you take command

The whispering winds stand still~
While the blue seas touch the once placid shores…
Of this mine heart, shan’t be bored 
As with rendered kiss our love’s fulfilled…
