Peter Daniel Phiri Poems
If I Find Time, I Will Love You
I'm a hustler, I have to keep moving. Money is my business, yours is loving me. Don't place too much hope on eyeing another eclipse, It may take a lifetime.
An Orphan Unto Love
You say you are an orphan unto life, .. But I'm an orphan unto love. You refuse to give me another chance, But soon you will be my past;
A Sacrifice For Love
In plight of loving you, I bleed, And willingly surrender my self to death. For with death,
Unfortunately, I will not stop, Across Africa, I will travel with this African face, My African pride, And my African story.
He dumped you and left you torpsy-turvy on the ground. But I will pick you up like a diamond soaked in mud. My love shall rain upon your traculant state, My noble heart shall gently touch yours in tatters;
This poem is dedicated to you, My love, For so many things you don't understand, So many nitigrities I have no power to explain.
I believe in the greater calling, I believe I can change the world. I am a voice of hope, A voice of encouragement,
Don't put on that sorry face because you are leaving me, I'm happy for you. For whatever makes you happy, Makes me happy as well.
We Are The Future
I bring new life and hope like a spring season, When your love is dying, my undying love is even, Like a chain, I'm the one who holds families together. My love is eternal, it will cause your storms to weather;
Aids Caught Me By Surprise
Your pain hides somewhere in my heart, How can I pull you up, when I'm falling down? I'm poised to lose this fight,
Without you, my love, I'm just a fading dream, A fallen star, and a mortal angel.
Unfortunately we will not retire, Across Afrika, we continue to inspire, With this African trophy, Our national achievement;
Burden Of Love
I can't be your lover, Because I can't love you, Without hurting you.
A Minute To Pray
Somewhere out there is an artist like me striving to rise. Somewhere out there is an orphan in tears. Somewhere out there is a hungry widow dying of Aids. Somewhere out there is a heartbroken soul with naked hope.

If I Find Time, I Will Love You
I'm a hustler, I have to keep moving.
Money is my business, yours is loving me.
Don't place too much hope on eyeing another eclipse,
It may take a lifetime.
Please smile, don't waste your precious tears my dear.
If I find time, I will love you.
I can't promise you or society anything,
If I do, I deserve punishment.
But I'm certain I'll make it in life.
Let me pack my bags again;
I'm going globetrotting.
I can hear the sound of water in Victoria Falls.
I'm afraid I will take another leap of faith.
I will mount an elephant and proceed to ...
