Raising Earnest Disciples (John 8:31)

Hurray! bErYl is a year older!!!

berylHip! Hip! Hip! Hurray!!! My precious wife and our dearest blogger, Mrs Anuoluwapo Priscilla Francis, is a year older today. Words can’t express the feelings of joy I have to be the husband of this epitome of a charismatic wife under whose tender loving care I’ve blossomed in just 4 months.

 

It will gladden my heart if together we all can cheer and celebrate this iconic lady whose pen and paper is blessing hundreds of lives across the continents.

 

 

Ode To bErYl

 

It looks just like yesterday

But I’m sure its way over a decade and a half

Since the day you came and held my heart sway.

Innocent and young, we went back and forth

For in our hearts an affection did lay.

Was it your voice or was it your mien?

Oh! I dare not talk about your eyes.

Was it the rhythmic gait reminiscent of a queen?

Ah! My heart surely tells no lies

 

Over and again I’m in love with you.

Inamorata, I’m yours then, now and ever.

As long as the sky remains blue

Our love will never say never

For even in eternity, I’ll ask my Lord one plea

That side by side we might walk the shores

To the delight of our saviour sweet and free

Inamorota, forever mine, forever yours.

 

Still in awe since you said ‘I do”

To this man, a frail and imperfect work in progress.

I knew it must have been love that kept us glued

And now I can see that I’m truly blessed.

Was it your voice or was it your mien?

Oh! I dare not talk about your eyes.

Was it the rhythmic gait reminiscent of a queen?

Ah! My heart surely tells no lies

 

Over and again I’m in love with you.

Inamorata, I’m yours then, now and ever.

As long as the sky remains blue,

Our love will never say never

For even in eternity, I’ll ask my Lord one plea

That side by side we might walk the shores

To the delight of our saviour sweet and free

Inamorota, forever mine, forever yours.

 

I love you, yes I do.

I love you, Beryl,

Yes I do.

 

Happy birthday to you,

Happy birthday to you!!
