Olawumi


I could have the birds sing her a song
And the trees sway to the rhythm
I could love her all night long
And be the air she'd always breathe in
I could write a poem in my blood
To say I'll love her forever more
Missing her makes my feelings flood
Into my heart, thoughts of her, deeply bore

I could tell the moon to hide its light
And bare itself to her radiant glow
I can never let her out of sight
She's the essence of the life I know
I could write her name on my heart
And make it's rhythm from the sound
I can never lose her, I crave that
I know my being, to her, is bound

Like a dire wish granted
She lights my face with a beaming smile
She's all I've ever wanted
For her I'll walk whatever mile
Here she lay cuddled in my arms
I wish it would ever be that way
And if I could own time with charms
It will pause to have her stay

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
