George Egba

I Am Alone

I am single and alone
Born to a family of ten
Blessed with so much love
Warmth and caring teen
Once it time to be a man i am alone
Father would put his beloved to bed
After mothers day of tossing me up and down
Looking at my bright eyes she will would whisper
Sweet dreams shall be your crown
But it time to dream i am alone
Growing up with friends
Without building a fool
Sometime mother would frown at my choice
But when is time to choose i am alone
It seem a tedious transition
My little world drifting from home and love
Away from mothers loving eyes
And fathers caring gaze
That affectionately watch over me
But when their watch is pale i am alone
I am alone i chase my infant dreams
Which i fondly shared with mother as a child
That moment she had always treasured with a smile
Now that i am of age let me fight
Though i regret to say this let me be alone
When it time to be a man
Take a woman make her the mother of my child
One to make me complete make me leave father and mother
Though mother would try her best for my best
To find a dream girl for me
But when it time to choose
The love of my life i am alone
Always stay alone to complete what i have started
Till one day return to my place alone

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
