' Welcoming The Wonder Of Love (for Ruth Ugbang)


I remember the light
As I look in the sky
The one she gave to my life
Shines so bright like the star
Iluminates every dark of mine
As I look in her eyes
I remember the wonder of love.
.
Then I remember her smile
The sparks of butterflies
In wonder I struck in awe
As I see in quiver
The arrows of eros
Making straight for my heart
And I knew from the start
This must be the wonder of love.
.
This song of my heart
Soothing this burning desire
And I see her confined
Right here in my heart
I could write her a thousand poems
Yet this feeling could I define
And I knew at the start
This is another wonder of love.
.
Yes I remember my hurt
When every dawn we
will have to end the call
Goodbye is not for my love
And I knew how it feels
To have this wonder of love.
.
Not too long ago I felt
She used to have qualms and fret
As she pondered in her head
Could there be love on the net
But in her heart she had known
It is only a wonder of love.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
