DEAR WIFE Maybe I was afraid to love, but never these deep Where did you come from, My soulmate? I trust you as my soul, And call you my own I call you my world, my gift of living I call you my heart and I give you my home My lover, my baby's mother Your attitude is a killer, it steals my heart You made me proud, I'm a father Why is there a song in my heart? Love it will be, you and only you from the start When you received a call, Going to war As a soldier you had to obey the orders Our world was apart I know it's forbidden to love you and it's hard Peter, John and I can't stop missing you I thank God and pray for you everyday, to conquer the enemies, You didn't fear, not even death, you're ready to conquer How did it happen? You are No more.I wish I could stand boldly on your path and prevent you from going. Peter John, at 2 years, losing his mum.
Am a widower, Your face will never be forgotten Your embrace is what I miss and those sweet kisses from your lips Oh my love it's hard Will I fight my government or Boko Haram? You were like a flowing wind, You were like a medicine for wounded hearts, Your death is tormenting me.
I don't know who I am anymore If not for our son Peter John,
I would have committed suicide But I will never stop loving you, My soldier of war.
