I Never Wanted

I never wanted
all the riches of the world,
for even when I’m living
in a house full of cracks and holes,
everything will look perfect
if I am with you.

I never wanted
fine jewels to grace my hands and neck.
For a crown of flowers upon my head
is more precious to me than all the gold
if it was given by you.

I never wanted
to be dressed in satin and silk,
for I am not a princess nor do I wish to be.
Even the plainest of clothes I will wear,
if it will bring that beautiful smile
to your face.

I never wanted
to be flaunted to the world,
just to tell me how much I am loved.
Even when it’s just the two of us
in our own little corner of the world,
I will still love the love you offer me.

Sunshine and Moonbeam

Who would have thought that there will come a time when I will be collaborating with one of the best artists I’ve ever known. Dear followers, it is official. I have a blog that I’ve set up with my older sister who is truly a gifted person and what we want to achieve here is to give you a source of inspiration.

Sunshine and Moonbeam, as we call our blog, represents the two sides of us. I am the day and she is the night. And by combining our love for writing and the arts we figured that we can work together as a team to bring some form of inspiration to our readers. This blog will represent the positive things we’ve learned along this journey called life and other nuggets of gold we’ve picked up along the way.

So, if you have the time to take a peek at our new blog, please do so. We’ll greatly appreciate your effort and the time it took you to read our works. 🙂 Feel free to leave a bit of yourself too because your comments will be our source of inspiration too.

Here’s my sister’s poem for your enjoyment: Perfect.

Much love to everyone!
