All To You - Poem by Jude Ogunade

I will be the shade from the scorching sun
I will be the oasis in the parched desert
I will never like others from you ever depart
I will be with you always from now till ever

I will be the umbrella from the raging rain
I will be the balm to soothe every prickling pain
I will with love redo all that has been undone
I will with attention adore you in my heated heart

You are the shadow I see even in the dark
You are the footsteps that has trodden my track
You are the footprints scattered all over my path
You are the rhythms the rhymes and the joy of my heart

I will capture comfort and present it to you with love
I will arrest affection and imprison it in your heart
I will get all the past pains and replace with greater gain
I will always, always, always, honour you with my all

Your love now treads the whole form of my all
Your affection arrests all my heart with love
Your attention has centred now on my concentration
I'm lost, lost, lost, in the labyrinth of love for you.

Let the sunshine in thy form continue the warmth
Let the shade of thy thoughts continue to calm
Let the beauty of thy form continue to impress
Let the thoughts of thy heart deliver me from distress

I will be all to you all in my all
I will be all to you all that I can haul
I will be all to you all with love
I will be all to you all in all.

(Cote D'Ivoire,1999)
