Mummy, Will He Break My Heart? - Poem by Grace Kariuki

Mummy, mummy, I have a secret to share.
What is it, my daughter?
Mummy, today I met him.
Today I met my TDHP.
Your who my daughter?
Mummy, my Tall Dark and Handsome Prince.
But tell me mummy, will he break my heart?

Mummy, I opened my heart to him.
I wanted to open just a teeny bit
But mummy, the doors to my heart just wouldn't stop going
Now my heart is wide open and vulnerable
Mummy, I let myself out of the cocoon I had built
Please tell me mummy, will he break my heart?

Mummy, you are above there
You are one with the star's
I see you everyday
Mummy, Can you tell if he is genuine
Can you tell me if he will hold my heart with tenderness
Please mummy tell me
Will my Prince break my heart?

Mummy, he reminded me of someone you knew
Who my daughter?
Mummy, he reminded me of my daddy
Oh, How so my daughter?
Mummy, he has a warm heart like my daddy
He has strong arms to carry me, like my daddy
He is calm, and hardworking, like my daddy
I feel like am his girl
He calls me sweetie
But please tell me mummy, will he break my heart?

    Lovely romantic piece of poetry, well articulated and nicely penned from heart with conviction. Good depiction of dad's girl at the onset of voyage of bliss that is love. Thanks for sharing Grace. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
