You Alone


Who could be more comely than an angel
What could be sweeter than honey
What could be brighter than a tropical sun in a dry season noon
What could be fresher and fascinating than an invigorating new dawn
What could be more crystal clear than Ogba Nkpume Spring
What could offer more warmth than a bosom richly endowed
What could be more intoxicating than a new palmwine
What could be more attractive than a full moon
In a cloudless, starry night
Who could be more resplendent than a bride
In the eyes of a desire-filled bridegroom
What could make one more confident than a vault loaded with cash?
Only you, my treasure, stand at the tip-top point
A vantage position above all the afore-mentioned
Truly, only you, and you alone
Are the incandescent light that illuminates
Every shade of darkness in my life
And only you, my sunshine, and you alone
Stand at the pride of place in my roomy heart
To be cherished and adored till the end of time.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
