“You Go Dey Alright She Said”
I still find myself saying that phrase when I feel overwhelmed or uncertain about a certain situation.
This is for that one time when we met on the streets of twitter.
This is for that one time we felt “Americanah” was highly overrated.
This is for the other times when I felt like we were kindred spirits.
This also is for those times when distance became so unbearable, and we could go days without speaking to each other, but when we do we just pick up from where we left off.
This also is for those times when I would whatsapp you about something that made me happy or sad or I just wanted gist.
This is for when you amazed me and gave me a book I had longed to read. “Jeffrey Archer’s – A Twist in The Tale” ok not give exactly but prompted me in downloading it”
This too is for that one time when you wrote me that beautiful note, I still feel butterflies when I read it.
This is also for that one time when you told me about side hustle, when you support my art with your words.
This is also for all the beautiful memories we would still share; yeah for the bachelorette parties, the baby showers, Long phone calls, the traveling to see places, buying all the books on amazon, eating all the chocolate we lay our hands on, serving God diligently and getting old and trying to see whose gray her fits her more.
There are friends you would meet and they simply “get you”, no pretense. They encourage you to see past your flaws, and dare you to be you.
I wouldn’t even start to tell you how amazing you are, even without having met you I just know it, like Gods Word Shut up in my Bones.
I pray you soar, I pray you shine, I pray you win daily.
Come June 2015 I hope to work miracles, then we can eat a big cake on your behalf, but for now I am just content with saying happy birthday to the most amazing person on earth.
Words aren’t enough Gweni’ to say all I want to say.
Daughter of consolation.
A Lifter of Men.
I love you from the very depth of my heart *dont you dare roll your eyes at me*
Happy birthday Gweni’. You deserve all the love in the world.
