I can still recall the day you approached me like it was yesterday

You looked my way and stared straight at me

with such intrigue like you were studying a rare creature

And then you smiled…

I can still feel how your smile warmed my insides

And I couldn’t understand why

but it felt like it was just the two of us in that room

no one or nothing else mattered.



I can still recall how the longing in your eyes made me shiver

and when you ran your hands through my back

down to my ass and pulled me close, I froze

You stared straight into my eyes, watching me closely

desperately waiting for a sign to nudge you on

panting, watching, begging with your eyes

and when I finally parted my lips

You leaned even closer and kissed me passionately,

full of desire, breath takingly left me wanting more






Sometimes I pinch myself

So as to convince myself

That this is not just a dream

Because when I see your face

my heart beats faster

and I cant help but smile


Sometimes I close my eyes so tight

Trying to hold on to slippery flickering moments

I can never forget the feeling

of your tongue slowly gliding all over me

Or the taste of your lips on mine

Both which make me moan with pleasure endlessly


Sometimes when you hold me close

and I can feel your heart beat against mine

I wish you could squeeze tighter so that it can last longer

Because with you, life is worth living



When I think about the future, I get petrified

I don’t know what tomorrow holds

and I am not sure about today either

But right now, at this very moment

all I want and all I need is you

I know you are scared, am scared too

but together you and I

We can figure it out

As every moment spent with you

is pure magical

And when you are not with me

I desire for you immensely



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  mine?


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
