Friends: Just keep an open mind. Before you know it, you will invite us for the wedding parry.
Me: (In my heart) Is my mind closed? Hmmm… If my mind was closed, will I have waited for Sister J for that long?
Well, there were those friends who were genuinely concerned.
I pray you find those friends who really understand you and what you’re going through and stick their neck for you without prejudice.
Let’s get down with SISTER SUNSHINE’S gist before this cold Fanta gets hot.
Sister Sunshine was a childhood friend; we’ve known for over two decades. She was a variance from others. She was in a class of her own.
I thought to myself, life is too short to live each day twice. Let me shake off and reach out for love. Afterwards, I placed a call and the communication began. Guys, it was fun!
Each call, filled my heart with warmth. SMS exchange was heavenly. 2go platform recognized our online presence because our chats refreshed their server. I felt so alive again.
I left no stone unturned neither gave room for assumptions, because assumptions are the smallest form of knowledge and can be costly.
I started from the scratch like I’ve not known her all my life. Taking one step at a time. Gradually we built a force that could not be reckoned with. We bonded so well. She became my bad habit. Our support system was so strong.
On a bright afternoon, I took out a pen and wrote her a poem titled “The Gospel About You”
On eagle’s wings I saw you
Beautiful like an angel
Your eyes sparked like the lightning of heaven
Your voice melodious to raise the dead
Your hair beautiful as the most treasured royal apparel
You’re royalty personified
Your heart shines bright like diamond
Your strength as that of a prevailing prince
I watched closely as if it were a dream
But found out it was a reality
You’re a captivating eagle
Attractive as the deep blue sea
I am amazed, because you are in my world
I find joy because my world has become our world
You bring me unending peace
This is my gospel about you.
Love you SUNSHINE.
I felt so secured loving SUNSHINE. Neither of us tried to impress each other. We accepted ourselves with no prejudice.
Considering how soothing loving SUNSHINE was and the attending peace that heralded the atmosphere, I made up my mind to nail it this time but reserved the manifesto declaration for her birthday which was just days away. (To be continued in series 5)
