Cherish Me When You Have Me - Poem by Alade Abayomi Idris

Cherish me when you have me
For friendships forever don't last
It is a relief for a time
Like boat in the sea
We move up and down the tide of life
Today, together we have had
Tomorrow truly remains uncertain
As the administrator of life is still in the business of deploying.

You don't have to be with me a lifetime
You can only do me things that would last a lifetime
Either things I would remember and laugh and pray God bless you
Or things I would remember and cry and pray heaven curses you.

I am like a clean slate
I go about with marks people put on me
While we are together
Please do me a world of good
For in next minute
You might not be chanced to erase errs you made me.
