I Am Here


You went too far
To hear my heart cry,
Folarin my friend,
Where are you?
I heard my heart's cry
Echo in the silence of your absence.
Folarin my friend,
where are you?

I am here.

I am here, you say
And all my past hurt and pain
Melt like candle before heat.
But now that you are here,
Folarin my friend,
Are you here to stay?

I am here.

Folarin my friend,
Here we are today,
Folarin my friend stay,
Folarin please stay,
Don't go, dont go away,
Please be here to stay.

I am here.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
