I have been thinking about you, about us

You make me so happy

You say and do things that fill me with delight

You make me feel so content

And I promise I am here for the long haul


I am scared of the thought of ever losing you

As a life without you is a life full of bleakness

I am scared stiff as I don’t know how to ask you

but more petrified of never knowing

So, with my heart on my sleeves…will you be ┬ámine?


I have been thinking about you, about us

You are the most difficult person I know but so am I

You get on my nerves sometimes I could wring your neck

but the rest of the time its like living in a dream

As you are amazing AND VERY LOVING


I tremble with pleasure at your every touch

And my legs go weak with your every kiss

Hell, forever seems like a short time mpenzi

But let us give it a go with all we have

And let us fill every day with new memories




The journeys we make in life are quite unending

Always rushing from one place to another

Trying to achieve something before a day’s ending

And more often than not

You end up feeling like you been run over by a truck, bending



But this is a journey I am embarking on with excitement

For I know, I am not alone

You are always there with a smile of encouragement

Even as we travel on this road together

Not entirely sure of where this path will lead us.


I know we have both made this journey before

Using different paths that may have been full of strain

And their own share of pain

And I can not promise you much

Only that I will hold your hand and be by your side


That may not be enough to make this journey worthwhile

And we are bound to face challenges on the way

More so that you may feel like giving up

But these rocky patches will make us stronger

And one day we will look back and be glad we made this journey…together





I tried to hold on to your hand as you got on the train

I tried to hold on to that moment as much as I could


And so I held on even tighter with all my might

But your hand slid over my fingers and the doors shut


I tried to run alongside the train as it left the platform

I waived my hands hysterically

Trying to catch your attention

Before it could leave the station

But I guess you were too busy trying to find your position


I closed my eyes forcing the tears back in

And hugged myself so tight it hurt

Happy thoughts, happy thoughts…I willed

As I hung on to the memory of you kissing me goodbye

With me tiptoeing while stroking the back of your head


Drawing strength from that I rose up

And as I dusted myself off

I caught sight of you looking at me

And as you blew me a kiss

My heart sunk even further




When I think of ways that I can tell you how happy you make me

I simply cannot find the right words

Because all the words available seem to fall short

You have brought happiness in my life

More joy than I could ever imagine possible

And for lack of better words I am going to settle for

Asante mpenzi


We may seem so different but at the end of the day

What we believe in and stand for are so similar

You make me laugh even at my worst moments

And you are always ready to pick me up when am down

I may not be perfect and you may have your own shortcomings

But together we are amazing

Together we are the A team


Every second that we spend apart

Is a second I spend missing you

We may be miles apart

But whenever I close my eyes I can feel you near

And I can imagine your arms around me

Shielding me away from all harm

Asante Mpenzi
