»I Can Love Again«

by Clem Squeeza Bee Mdue, February 10, 2017

Heaven sent, are you?
I can see the light again, that's all you.
Brought me back from the doldrums
How can I ever repay you?

Like a doctor treating a patient from war
you dressed my wounds.
Covered my naked soul with all your love
He hurt me, he really did.
You picked up the pieces, like a broken mirror,
you managed to salvage some parts of me that
could still be used.

You patient and I'm grateful
you are mine and I'm yours
You fixed me and I'm whole again.
I'm like a child who just learnt how to walk.

I can now safely say I can love again and it's all because of you...

I love you...

»Why Me?«

My mother's womb warm as it is, I can't wait to get out / To mingle with the world / To join my peers as we explore. / Its time to leave my 1st home now, we cut the umbilical chord as everyone awaits my arrival. / Majestically I arrive only to be greeted by sad faces. / This was not what I was promised.  sign in to read more »

»Dear Baby Mama/Hey Baby Daddy«

*Dear Baby Mama* / / Dear Baby Mama please let's have a life with no drama. / I loved you and I still do, I mean you gave me the greatest gift, a child. / Now all we have to do is help her grow. / We don't need to hold hands but we do have to hold her hands. / We failed at love but we can't fail at this  sign in to read more »
