Think about solutions rather than problems
Do you spend all your time analyzing issues at work or faults in your relationships? If so, try and focus your energy on identifying solutions, rather than dwelling on the problem. Are you conscious that you don’t spend enough time with your partner or have you got too much to get through at work? If so, consider ways you could manage your time more effectively. Could you ask your boss about working from home to save time on commuting twice a week or could you make more time for…

Perfect Christmas Kiss

    i like peanut butter; you  prefer mayo

    i eat everything but beef; while you enjoy a meal of f steak

            And i like quiet dinner together but you said conversation is what makes it better

i hate cracking jokes but it is your life i guess

            i always ask for direction; finding your  way is your choice

            i like a walk in the mall;  you’d rather run and stroll              

                         while i’m piling on the comforter; you lay there bare in comfort

                         as i read poetry you’d rather watch T.V.

i can’t find you the perfect gift; you never like my choices

on Christmas eve i’d give you the one thing we always agreed upon

a perfect Christmas eve kiss.

Monday Morning Melts #6

Jade: Do you feel it? The beautiful lights, the easy smiles, and the hint of magic in the air that always makes the holiday season one to remember.

Instead of choosing from one of the classic Christmas songs, I’m offering lyrics this week from a song that’s a little quirkier. To everyone still scrambling for that perfect Christmas gift, I hope this song is a reminder that the perfect Christmas gift is something money can never buy.

Happy Holidays to all of you, my dear friends! I wish you all a season of contagious laughter, unconditional love, and magic to last a lifetime.

PROMPT: Humbug – Owl City

I’m ready to wrap that perfect Christmas gift
But I haven’t found it yet
‘Cause I don’t have a clue what to get you
So I’ll give you my heart, I hope it’ll do

In Between

In Between

I am million miles away from home. The home where i grew up with. The distance is suffocating…deafening…exhilarating; but this is nothing compared to the distance we’ve created even if we’re not million miles apart; the distance between our families…our friends…our siblings…our in laws..our neighbors…and often times the distance between the very person we claimed we love the most. Yes! This is the distance that we cannot measure..we cannot touch…we cannot see…BUT we can always bridge the gap…find a way..open an avenue…and maybe, yes, just maybe see a clearer view…

 

Between heaven and earth;
a story is unearth.
Between past and present;
a sailing is sent.
Between here and there;
a distance is clear.
Between a moment and forever;
a struggle so clear.

Sometimes heaven and earth met;
when a story is broken and lit.
Sometimes past and present collide;
when the sailing subside.
Sometimes here and there is near;
when the view is clearer.
Sometimes a moment and forever is eternity;
when the struggles become infinity.

So move heaven and earth boldly;
for your story to be told oddly.
So hold the past and present sincerely;
for your sailing to be done completely.
So break the here and there completely;
for your distance to be moved effortlessly.
So create a moment and forever lovingly;
for your struggles to be over definitely.

In Response to Monday Morning Melts #5

mmm-3

Rosema: Most of the time, love is expressed and felt through physical intimacy. Touch. Kisses. Hugs. But how about loving someone from afar? How about loving someone you haven’t seen yet? How about falling for someone’s soul residing in a body thousand miles away from you? Will it be a gamble worth committing? Will it feel like a heart’s solitary suicide?

This week, let’s delve the idea of long distance love. (Which is now for me, the purest love of all).❤

“One Sweet Love” – Sara Bareilles

The earth that is the space between,
I’d banish it from under me to get to you.
Your unexpected love provides my solitary suicide
oh I wish I knew

P.S. Jade and Rose

I know this is too late… I am posting it anyway…

 

Where Are You?

Where are you?

The girl i used to be

The effervescent me?

Did he take you away?

Along with all my better days?

I wished would stay…

How are you?

The girl I used to be

The effervescent me?

Will you ever be back?

Your death was like a heart attack

Now life i lack…

The music makes me numb

Makes me wanna succumb

To loneliness, for the rest of my life.

There’s a pain in my chest

That i cannot resist…

P.S

Every teen age girl’s anxiety…

——–

Oh Lord, thank God for the small things,

The words and acts of kindness,

Which help me through the day.

Thank God for the small things,

Each day I’m fed,

I’ve many clothes to wear.

Thank you that I too can be generous,

That you gave me aMotherwho taught —

Her daughter to be thoughtful,

So I wouldn’t think only of myself.

And even when I’m hurt and crying,

I can see a silverlining in that cloud.

*****

Lord, thank you for the small things,

A life I’m given to live,

No matter how battered or bruised,

You’re my armour and you never leave.

Your champions wage,

Though the whirlpool may swallow;

You bring us through to the other side.

New blessings each day,

More than we need

My Santa Claus

Merry Christmas Everyone..i am sharing a poem i wrote last Christmas, in memory of my Dad..

Dad, wherever you are Merry Christmas …I miss you..

michnavs

giant sock hanging at our window panethe night before Christmas you asked me “please my little princess Santa’s coming I need your socks hanging before Christmas eve”.

Christmas, day I’d run underneath the tree, wanna see how many gifts you had for me, but you said “please my little princess check your socks I think Santa dropped by last night”.

Christmas gifts from you were mostly made up of toys and clothes and I would be disappointed somehow for I want something else, then you’d say “please my little princess check what Santa had for you”.

my giant sock hanging on window pane was filled with books coloring materials, then you said and smiled “please my little princess go check carefully if these were exactly what you asked from santa”.

on my 12th Christmas I stopped hanging socks, you said “please my little princess bear with santa, he only drop…
