its you that i want

it's you that i want,
i want nobody else
though your best-friend has lovely eyes
and adorable features,
her face is full of light,
her heart the softest
of all hearts,
her touch angelic,
her walk majestic
the look in her eyes,
like the Aurora Borealis.
but its you that i want.
it's you that i want
i want nobody else,
your sister maybe:
with her petal soft skin,
hair like Rapunzel's
always attach me to her,
her face like Cleopatra,
makes her the most adorable,
being i should be with,
but its you that i want.
it's you that i want
i don't want nobody else
i have many ladies on my list
those with big hips,
soft lips,
heavenly eyes,
petal touches,
but its you that i want,
being with you is like:
watching the Victoria falls,
walking with you is like,
scaling Mt. Everest,
knowing that you are mine is like
owning the Harbor of Rio de Janeiro
waking next to you is like
waking on the Great Barrier Reef
in your eyes i see
the northern lights
when you hold me
my heart imitates the Paricutin
and when they see us together is like
watching the Grand Canyon.
to me you are the 8th wonder of the world
hence its you that i want.. . .
. . . ......it's you that i want. . . .

settle for the right one

We all have to settle for the right one,
each of us will one day choose one,
and in the choices you make,go for one,
Right job
Right girl,
Right boy,
Right husband,
Right wife material,
and settle for the right one,
The Sun,
settled for the right one,
rising at dawn,
setting at dusk,
Her brother the Moon
chose to do the exact opposite,
in the end,they both settled for the right one.
Your parents,
settled for one,two,three,...
you know better how many you are,
but they settled for the right one,
even if u the example setting 1st born,
forever spoilt last born,
only girl among boys,
only boy among girls,
or you are one of the late coming kids,
they say '' we don't know how it happened''
your friends,
settled for the right one,
they choose to praise you,
they choose to diss you,
they talk behind your back,
they talk right within your earshot.
but hey, 
they settled for the right one.
your family,
sisters and brothers
settled for the right one,
they love you, adore you,
look upto you,
seek your advice,
do you do the same?
and settle for the right one.
don't rush for them,
dont get one coz your friend 
just had one,
take your time and settle for the right one,
don't think that the adorable SMS's 
she sends you indicates her as the one,
maybe the one with mean texts
is just the one.
dont let coffee dates seal the one for you,
take your time..
and settle for the right one
i am writing this,
in hopes that you will find time,
settle for the right one 
and read this.
just remember,..
..... Settle for the right one....

one piece

One piece,
That is all I have to give,
It might not be much,
But please accept this one piece.
I can try getting more,
I can’t promise to get more,
Please don’t expect more,
Just accept this one piece.
One piece,
That is all I have to give,
I can give one hug at a time,
One kiss at a time,
One decent handshake at a time,
One piece of advice at a time,
One smile at a time,
One tear at a time,
No wait, two ’tears’ at a time.
But that will spoil my sequence,
For you is one,
And I wanna give you just
This one piece.
One piece,
That’s all I can take,
I can take one Dad at a time
I can take one Mother at a time,
I meant I have one mother.
One love from my 5 sisters,
One joy in my heart from my 3 Nieces,
One fanatical football support from my 4 Nephews,
They gave me one piece.
One piece
Is what I promised you,
And one piece is what you will get.
I wanna thank you,
One for thinking bout my words,
One for posting them in your Blog
One for sharing them with your friends,
One for putting that smile in my face,
One you is all,
One moment is what we agreed,
One piece at a time,
Is all I ask you to put some more
One piece as I promised you.
One piece
Is defined today,
One rose is what some will get,
One box of choc is what some will get,
One lovely text some will read,
One lovely thought,
Know that you are forever in me.
One chain is what some will get
One pair of boxers some will get
One piece of lingerie …
I want to leave it at that,
And confirm that my one
Is still one …
One piece,
Just like I promised the words.
