Updated on July 9, 2010

I am this kind of a guy who goes to what i want, girls admire me a great deal but despite the fact that i am outspoken, yet i have a weakness and my weakness is approaching girls.

First, it is hard for me to start up a conversation with a girl i do not know but wish to know so the day i saw Mary was another bad day for me.

It was a friend’s party and everyone dressed to kill but i am not so good in wearing ties so i was looking descent on my straight jean and hug then the moment i saw her, something told me that she was cool and her mode of dressing if i am left to judge, i will classify it excellent. I wanted to talk to her and i wanted to know her name, i imagined everything a guy can imagine upon the sight of a damsel but my weakness was in control and all i did throughout the party was watching her anywhere she go.

I wanted to dance with her but she might not accept because i saw her said NO to five other guys but you know what, in all our weakness lies our strength so i took a pen and a sheet of paper and decided to write something for her. All i know and believe is that i wish to be her Body guard so i wrote her a poem and summoned the courage to get it to her.

She smiled when she saw me facing her, it was like a war of thought but believe me,i know that we both can win any war so i told her my name.

“My name is Sam and it is obvious that we do not know each other but i have something for you”

“My name is Mary and what do you have for me because i noticed you watching me “

Honestly, it is not hard to start up a conversation with a girl you do not know but admire; anyway i still have my fear but i gave her the sheet of paper which she accepted with a powerful smile, you know that kind of smile that will make you want to hug someone but all i got was a Thank you, i will read the content later.

I left her but kept watching her from where i was then suddenly, she disappeared.

I didn’t see her when she left but i began searching for her because the party was not yet over then i spotted her outside in the garden where she was reading my piece then i smiled but as i wanted to turn back, she looked up straight and saw me standing then with another powerful smile, she waved at me.

Here is a girl i hardly know sitting next to me with her arms on my neck as we both held the paper together and i do the reading...


I will be awake when you are asleep

And i will watch you dusk to dawn

I will walk you everywhere you go

And i will be your shade from the sun

I will be your umbrella when it rain

No matter what...

No matter how hot or cold

No matter what time of the day

I will...

I will be there next to you

A service not for prize but pride

Let me be your...

Let me be your body guard

You are a special breed indeed

In my meditation...

My service will not be a secret

This is all i wish to do

Be your body guard

Be your eyes and ears

Together we will win all the war


Give me a chance to be your front

Though i don’t mind to watch your back

Baby you deserve the best of me

And i will always make you smile

Let me be your body guard

Your body language will lead my thoughts

Let us walk side by side from now

This is a service from me to you

And you are everything to me

Let me be your strength when you are weak

Consider me your body guard.

      Move over Kevin Costner. lol (Film - The Bodyguard)

      What a beautiful piece of writing. I hope you get to publish a book with all these nice stories in one day. I'm sorry I haven't been able to catch up with all of them but I thoroughly enjoy the ones I read.

      Enjoy the weekend. :)
