It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With
November 29, 2012 – 18:32 | No Comment

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Destined Friendship

Submitted by on November 25, 2009 – 03:132 Comments

Have you ever felt like you have known someone for ages long,
When you only just met each other and became friends?
Have you ever felt like you have been friends for a long time,
When you only got to know each other a few days ago?

Could it be because the friendship was already destined by God,
In this place, at this very moment, for a special purpose?
Two people sharing a strong bond with unknown reasons,
Could it be that we’ve stumbled onto each other by coincidence?

It felt like I have been your friend for a long, long time,
You made me feel like I’ve known you since I was born.
Two souls coming together to share a unique bond,
Even when we’re worlds apart, we’re still intertwined in our hearts.

If one day our paths no longer overlap and we have to part,
Each living in different worlds, our journeys separate us apart.
I want you to know that when this life is over, a new life begins,
And up in heaven, I’ll be waiting for you to call you my friend again.

In our life, there is someone who will always be true; there is a friend who will always be real. But we will not always have that someone in our life; we will not always have that someone in every stage of our life. We’d have to learn to let go of that someone at one point of our life so that we can both soar up high and rise to our destiny. So that at the end of the journey, we can look forward to meeting each other again and call out, “Friend, what took you so long!” Some friendships are meant to comfort you along the way; others are friendships destined to encourage us to complete our race on earth.

    Have you ever felt like you have been friends for a long time,
    When you only got to know each other a few days ago?…very true!
    ( I met a new friend at a party last year, with just a few minutes in a our conversation ( a really good talk!) I felt like I known that person all my life. Sounds really funny to me, because I think is hard to make friendship these days. err…..usually the sales talk comes in! 🙂

      Yesh! I agree, it’s all about the sales talk these days… like there is this girl who tries so hard to get me out and spend time with her all the time, and her main purpose is to get me to join MLM. Can you believe it? After realising that I will not give it a try one month later, she gave up and stopped calling me totally!! Such friend!
