Celebrating the Love of Friends in a Loving World
Red Roses for You, My Sweet Friends ... Total Love.

My Sweet Friends

My sweet friends,

We grow closer to each other;

When we interact together and share ideas;

The common faith that we share,

Binds our hearts in one accord.

For sweet friendships last a life time,

When built on mutual respect, humility and understanding;

Throughout each different season,

We find we are one in life.

Sweet friends are there through times of grief;

And times when hope is gone;

Always there with encouragement;

So we can carry on.

I thank the Lord for you,

My true and faithful friends;

To fondly speak with you, whether we agree or not,

On this, our beloved blog;

For sweet friends will stay, no matter what;

Giving support.

Together, our hearts and minds truly unite;

With the amazing love of sweet friends.

In the spirit of true friendship,

Best wishes, my sweet friends;

May the Lord bless you abundantly.

I remain, yours truly,

B.B. Bakampa.

THE PRAYER OF A DESPERATE YOUTH

THE PRAYER OF A DESPERATE YOUTH
Listen to my prayer, Dear God,
and hear my moan for help!
When I am desperate
don’t neglect me!
Listen to me,
and reply swiftly my request!

My whole me is vanishing like steam;
my body is heating like iron in a furnace.
I am weather-beaten like dry leaves;
I am desperate.
I cry loudly;
I am nothing but a wretched young human being.
I am like a stranger in a foreign land,
like a beggar in an abandoned street.
I sleep not;
I am like a refugee in a camp.
All day long my foes insult me;
those who detest me curse me all night long.
Because of poverty, wars and unemployment,
ashes are my food and tears, my drink.
I seem to have been condemned
to live that way.
My future is drooping;
I am like thirsty flowers.

But you, Dears God, are merciful forever;
all mortals will attest to this.
Rise and take pity on all youths;
the right time has come to have mercy on them
Your lambs like them,
even though they are miserable
They feel for them,
even though they are blocks of ice.

The nations will praise you Dear God;
all the heads of state and governments will glorify you.
When you empower the youth,
you will reveal your greatness.
Nestle down among your desperate youths
and listen to their prayers.

Dear God, hear the groans of youths
and set free those condemned to poverty wars and unemployment
And so your name
will be praised among youths,
And proclaimed in conference halls
when youths and statesmen come together to plan ahead.

Then our children will live in peace,
and under your care
Their descendants will be secure
and prosperous.
