I’ll be Here

A lesson on Friendship

I cannot ease your aching heart
Nor take your pain away.
But let me stay and take your hand
and walk with you today.
I’ll listen when you need to talk,
I’ll wipe away your tears.
I’ll share your worries when they come
I’ll help you face your fears.
I’m here and I will stand by you
on each hill you have to climb.
So take my hand, let’s face the world
and live just one more day at a time
You’re not alone for I’m still here
I’ll go the extra mile
And when your grief is easier
I’ll help you learn to smile.

Should You give up Your Independence

Times have changed. As women we have evolved. Gone are the days when women were expected to stay home, be good wives and bear children. Women are now go-getters forging the way and making strides in almost every area of society.

However we still have women who believe it is a man’s job to take care of them and make them happy. This is not a good idea. A relationship should never be about one person’s total dependence on another but rather about two people working together to create something great.

Dependence is one of the key factors that many women become trapped in unhappy and abusive relationships. Even if they have the will to leave, inability to finance themselves keep them trapped. Whether it is a marriage or a relationship maintain your independence. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made

Allow no one to Break Your Self-confidence

She Rises From the Ashes

She rises from the ashes of her pain

It was not easy but she dug deep inside

and found an inner strength to get her through it.

Now she is not afraid to face her fears

She is not afraid to stand tall and shine

She holds her head high with confidence

And she will rise and keep on rising.

You Deserve Better

Don’t let him knock you around

Not matter how much he apologizes

or tells you he loves it.

It isn’t love if it hurts.

You deserve better

Poetry

Love Found Me

You unlocked the door to my heart

I thought I had locked it and threw

away the key, but you found it

and you freed me.

It’s enough to hear you whisper

I love you so much dear.

But it’s ever nicer that you take the time

To show me how much you care.

He loves me

“I love you,” he said last night

as he held me tight.

His words were like magic to my ears.

Today he came home angry

and his fist almost sent me

flying down the stair.

“I am leaving,” I screamed

“You wouldn’t dare,” he said.

“If you do I’ll find you and kill you.”

I stared at him trying hard to understand

How this sweet loving man can sometimes

change on me like a chameleon.

He doesn’t mean it you know

After all he loves me!

ps. Often times women find themselves caught up in these situation. Take any threat on your life serious. If he says he will kill you, don’t convince yourself that he won’t. Seek help. Get out. Save yourself.

She Dreams of Love

She dares to be a dreamer

she believes in love,

and even when doubt assails her

her heart still holds on.

For what is life without love

and to have someone to love.

Sometimes she smiles to hide her pain

and hope that someday,

all will be right with the world

and love will find her again.

How do I Love Thee

How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways

I love the way you smile

That twinkle in your eyes,

I love the sound of your heart

Beating gently against mine.

I love the way you love me

And I love you too,

Darling to eternity

It will just be me and you.

Relationships

Who you fall in love with is destined by fate. While we can plan for most aspect of our lives, when it comes to love the best made plans can fall to pieces. Often emotions take over and you find you are no longer in control. The heart wants what the heart wants and sometimes the heart gets what the heart wants, and yet relationships fail.

Sometimes the excitement is all in the chase and once the prize is won the excitement diminishes and complacency sets in. People begin taking each other for granted, passions wains…. Often times relationships fail because people don’t take the time to try to make it work. Like everything else, in order to be a success, relationships take work.

Is True Love Always Forever

Do you believe that if you truly love someone it means that you will love them no matter what? Now I know people have mixed views about what true love entails however one must be quick to understand that a healthy relationship involves two people having mutual love and respect for one another.  It should never be a one-sided thing so don’t fall for that trap where a partner hurts you and then tell you that if you truly love  you would forgive him.  How about him loving you enough not to hurt you in the first place?

The belief that true love last forever and it is worth fighting for is one of the reason why women remain in abusive relationship hoping that the more love they show the abusive partner, the more likely it is that he will change. This is a belief that often leads to disappointment for no amount of love that you show him will make him change. He has to feel that deep love inside for you and respect you enough not to hurt you. They change that you seek can only come from him. You can’t make him change and you should never settle for abuse. It is okay not to love your abuser. It is okay to walk away.
