The Desert And The Flower - Poem by Victor Ogoti

You are the beauty of my veil
You are the smile on my face
You are the dimple on my cheek
You are the ego of my pride

You are the honey of my home
My honor my pleasure my pride
And I shall give you sedulous protection
I shall perish before your extinction

Let the sun shine
Let it shine crimson bright
Let it shine red hot
Let it heat the heart of my hearth
And you shall never wither
Though my supplies are meager,
Until the last jot in my veins
You shall never wither

Let the wind roar
And let it rave and rove in furry
But you shall never break
I shall add strength unto your stem
I shall clinch unto your feet
And you shall never break

And if the clouds get meaner
And turn her face from us
I shall never obsess
Let my heart shrink, crack and die
Before you ever perish

But my sacred prayer lord
That in the worst of situations
Send a little rain:
And my flower shall grow
