Magical Being

Wonder why I never fell? Go down but never drown? Why a smile is always painted On my beautiful cheeks? You reason as to why My hearts sings always Gracious hymns And not songs of sorrow. The secret you seek Of my ever-lively heart, The secret I shall tell, Is this magical being. An angelic being That grasps my hand so I stumble not. The name you ask, Ayo I say, Ayobami Abiola. She is the one who like a spell Has painted a wide cheer On my once sad cheeks An eternal change. Oh! God I thank you, For this wonderful creature Which you made me So unworthily her bestfriend. Her voice as subtle as a dove Quenches any fire around me She is always there, by my side To guide, every step I take. Ma meilleure amie A rare gem. Forever am I indebted to you For your love, care, support and friendship. This friendship Will I cherish forever, And I always will be by your side, My very best friend.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
