Forever! Poem by Jubril Balogun


The earth be cool
Born of the moon's caress
The night and the mood,
Burning emotions at its crest
…life is short,
Come be my forever.

What if the sun rose from the west,
And the winds go unrest?
What if all that's good is dead,
Whilst safe haven wrapped in chaos vest?
…life is short,
Come be my forever.

When love'd be mythical
Hence affection ridiculed.
Then lies shall have truth subdued
Bringing the world to doom…
Else,
There'd be bloom
The skies'd weep in June.
…life is short,
Come be my forever.

Nature'd be green
Enraptured in the sun's grin
Birds will sing in awesome thrill
And each day awakens to rhythmic bliss
…life is short,
Come be my forever.

I'd see your face and smile
As my sighs at it shall fly.
When nothing thereof matters,
Save hearts in emotions flutter.
Then to your ears I'd whisper
…life is short,
Come be my forever.
