Have I Loved Amiss - Poem by Odhiambo Gilbert Francis
Have I loved amiss?
Someone tell me please,
Do all happen like this,
That because of a kiss
As gentle as a dove
One falls in love?
Yes and no, my child.
Love is not love that is mild;
That glows at the touch of lips,
False faces and padded hips.
True love sprouts from knowledge
Of one's self, essence and hedge,
And finding life's perfect tune
To bring you rhyme and boon.
