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.
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 ...
Can We Bury This Love?
After some time, a bird leaves the nest,
And petulantly flies away just like the rest.
So am I suffocating you?
You say you need time and space to breathe;
Yet strangly, you look at me with a drooping face as I leave.
Beyond your eyes glitters wonderland,
Give me a spade, let's bury this love before I go mad.
Whither shall I wander? Eden or Dreamland?
