“…You know when one door closes another opens, a more better door than the previous opens” Gbemi said smiling
She smiled as she heard him say sorry a word so small yet so big, for a moment she wondered why it took him so long to say sorry. As she looked at him over the dinner table,he hasn’t changed since they last met. All Gbemi could see in him was a monster a mistake yet a lesson.
How could he come now after a year to tell her sorry, staring at him she began to recall all that has happened in the past. Gbemi sat still her eyes fixed on him as he kept repeating the word “SORRY” she took a long stare at him and this time she wasn’t smiling.
“I’m sorry i never did know your worth” Leke said
“Oh yeah! How would you know” Gbemi said softly “All you ever cared for was your work, friends you never cared about me, I was more of a nobody to you your punch bag!” she said in anger.
‘I’ve come to realise my mistakes, i’m sorry if only I could change the hands of time but I can’t. I’m sorry Gbemi life hasn’t been at it’s best since you left” Leke said with tears in his eyes.
“How sweet! anyone who sees you like this would believe you’re really sorry…” Angry Gbemi
‘I really am” he cuts
“Let me finish” talking Gwen said with anger written all over her
“…So it took you a year to get your brain together to tell me you’re sorry, you are a mistake, a lesson. Have you forgotten all you said when you ended our marriage now you’re back it doesn’t work that way,it doesn’t” Gbemi had said telling him words for words all he had told the court while he was filing for a divorce.

A word so small yet so big
‘The moment you learn to live by your own means that’s when you independent’
Little yet big
Plenty yet little
Rich yet so poor
I never believed in fairy tales
But you are my fairytale
I never had fantasies
You became my greatest fantasy
Each time you call my name
My heart jumps for joy
The sight of you sends cold down my spines
Your sweet lullaby voice caresses my soul
When we walk together,the whole world stands still
With you by my side all that’s imperfect becomes perfect
I see the light of love in you
You’ve become my fairytale
My greatest fantasy.
As I walked down the street heading home
I could see so many people but
They all had the same faces
Faces looking like no other but you
Each had your smile on their faces
They had your voice
They walked like you
Everything around me speaks of you
I smiled as I saw them
You have occupied my thought
There isn’t anything compared to you
Your sight glitters my soul
Illuminate my heart
Brightens my eyes
Sometimes all we need is a little push up,something or someone to motivate us and make us feel we can do the unimaginable.
Life is meant to be lived in the best possible way it can be lived.
Why make life complex when its really simple, learn to give back when you receive and learn to appreciate when you’re acknowledged.
In life certain things are bound to happen,the good,bad and ugly but whatever happens,we should never fail to give thanks to God.
Life is a journey full of ups and downs and no one was ever promised a risk free life. Stepping out of your room every morning is a risk because no one knows what’s going to happen next.
Learn to appreciate people who just want to be around you, and never try to make them feel less.
She came when I thought I needed no one
She made a bad guy turn good
She made me believe in tomorrow
She made me believe in love again
She came with the wind
Changed my life
Made me a home
Became my teacher
Gave me life
And just as she came she left
She left with the wind
She just left
As a child yearns for chocolates
I yearned for your arrival
I awaited the day I did hold you in my arms
Give you your first kiss
Be the first to see your cute smile
Touch your little fingers
And watch you take your first step
I awaited your birthday
Habyb was gonna be your name
For I awaited your arrival My Beloved
Everyone awaited your birth
But you never came around
Your cradle still stands
Handmade by your Papa
For he hopes to see you someday
Your socks I had knitted from fine wool lays in it
I still await your return
Love they say comes once
But I’ve fallen for you a thousand times
And a million times more
With emotions running deep and nowhere to release them
My heart has come to accept that you will never love me back
For love at first sight they say isn’t real
Real is what I feel
Feelings no word can describe
But this love isn’t meant to be
Because she loves someone else
And just like me he would never love her back.
