#JONATHAN

🎵Take this fainted heart

Take these tainted hands

Wash me in your love

Come like grace again

Even when my strength is lost

I'll praise you

Even when I have no song

I'll praise you

Even when it's hard to find the words

Louder then I'll sing your praise

I will only sing your praise

Take this mountain weight

Take these ocean tears

Hold me through the trial

Come like hope again

Even when the fight seems lost

I'll praise you

Even when it hurts like hell

I'll praise you

Even when it makes no sense to sing

Louder then I'll sing your praise

I will only sing your praise

I will only sing your praise

I will only sing your praise

I will only sing your praise

And my heart burns only for you

You are all you are all I want

And my soul waits only for you🎵

I loved singing to this song God always strength my soul ..

I kept in singing to the song when a beautiful girl joined me. .

"Am sorry my dad loves this song " she said 

"Really " I said 

"Yeah!! Am salifyanji " she said with a breathtaking smile 

"Am Jonathan " I said 

She faced the other side 

"I guess you are new here "I said .

"Yes I got transferred " she said 

"You are at nakonde high school" I asked 

"Yes " she said with a smile 

"I need to get going " I said dusting myself

"So soon " she asked 

"I need to help my dad " I said 

"Oh ok " she said sounding sad 

"I bet you don't have friends here right " I asked 

"You guessed it " she faked a smile 

I chuckled 

"My father is the care taker of the school my house is just at the corner of the school " I said 

She nodded 

"Where do you stay "I asked 

"Miss chama 's place" she  said 

"Teacher's compound"  I asked 

She nodded 

"I will see you around " I said 

She waved goodbye and walked away ..she seemed to be lonely .

I went to help my father since he wasn't feeling well I had to go help with the work at the school .. atlest his job was putting food on the table and was able to cloth me but couldn't take me to college ...

I guess you are wondering about my mother right? 

While my dearest mother couldn't manage our suffering so she ran away when I was just 1yr 2months . sometimes I hear my father cry and ask God to bring her back. She was coloured so that's make me a yellow bone lol ..

"I thought I wouldn't see you " Judy said 

"I need to help my father with some wiring" I said 

"But I miss you " she said 

"Judy not now " I said 

"Jona when I have missed you " she complained 

"Okay let's meet up after am done " I said 

She smiled 

She walked away...I did the wiring and went back home to shower..after that I went to see Judy 

"Hey " she hugged me 

"Hi" I said back 

This girl has hurt me more than my mother she keeps on cheating on me but I still take her back maybe it's because I loved her ..we chatted than I went home ..I found dad crying holding mum's pic

"Sometimes I wish you can forget about her and move on " I said 

"It's not easy " he said 

"Oh please father not easy what am 19 for God sake the witch left us and she is happy wherever she is " I said 

"Jona one day when you fell in love with a woman the witch left us and she is happy wherever she is " I said 

"Jona one day when you fell in love with a woman you will understand" he said 

"I hope I don't have that kind of love cause it's just not worth it " I said walking away 

I did the cooking and went to sleep ..

I woke up didn't find dad in his room ..I guess he was now feeling better .

I did the chores and went to draw water than later decided to take a nap ..

I was woken up by a knock. 

"What the fuck " I said 

I got up and opened the door .

"Am sorry I woke you up " salifyanji said 

"It's okay come in " I said 

I took her to my room since we didn't have nice fancy chairs .

I didn't mean to wake you up I was bored at home so u decided to come see you " she said 

"It's fine " I said 

She was facing down I guess it's because I was shirtless.

"Am sorry " I said putting on my shirt 

"It's OK " she smiled 

She started going through my books. .

"You were great in math" she asked 

"Yes I still am " I said 

"You should be teaching me some cause I hate it " she said 

"Sure we can make arrangements" I said 

"Thanks" she said 

We talked about random things but one topic she never touched was the one for her family ..and I didn't want to ask about it ....

"I need to get going I don't want to worry my grandmother and aunty " she said getting up 

So Saturday we can start " I asked 

"Yes please " she said 

I escorted her and started cooking ..
