“Life is precious, fragile, fleeting”

We met one day and fell in love

So like the cooing of a dove

We love travelling and reading

Life is precious, fragile, fleeting

Spending a day with Abab

Girl so cuddly like a gift wrap

She’s singing as well as dancing

Life is precious, fragile, fleeting

I went to visit my mother

So happen also my brother

Went to restaurant, love eating

Life is precious, fragile, fleeting*

*A Kyrielle

Here’s to us

For all the things we have gone through

Here’s to us

Day to day living with no fuss

Garden, cooking, love tried and true

From Neubiberg to Timbuktu

Here’s to us*

*The Rondelet


Sentimental is when I look at photos
Of the past where everyone is meaningful
With tenderness and love, our story in prose

It’s when I keep the son’s first shoes and I mull
All his toys in boxes and his room like shrine
When he comes back to visit, he’ll be able

With Him Indoors, we remember our first dine
Thirty years ago but seem like yesterday
The food, the music and everything was fine

He was romantic, he gave me a bouquet
Life is wonderful and we’re here to stay

Follow your inner moonlight
Things you do is such an excite
Don’t hide the madness
That’s you and what’s the fuss?
You are the soul of the universe
Take a hint from the verse
Fresh and lingering as the new day
The colourful chameleon that’s not grey
It tends to change its colour as it sees fit
It’s stress-free just like changing an outfit
Fine range of drinks for urbane palates
Good quality wine like gold with 24 carats
Spend some time in the sun till toasty brown
Life is good, go and have some fun uptown
Mix with the cool people of different sex
You can assess them, don’t even need specs
The subtleness of pastel colour suits you
You charm them, men are always in a queue
Reading classic fantasy yields rich imagination
Create your own wonderland and have some fun

    This post is chock full of lovely things, Lady Lee. Your beautiful attitude about life shines through – like a diamond. Little Abab is so precious. She is a real princess. I just finished a jigsaw puzzle, but it wasn’t as green as yours. Have a beautiful weekend being yourself and discovering more precious memories.
