Truth Pervades My Every Vow Of Love For You - Poem by Pheko Motaung

I cannot be surly
and cynical and pour
Scorn on your well
Meaning innocent love

I cannot wish
you out of my dreams
The nightmares will not
Leave me in peace to
Gloat at your broken heart

I cannot walk in the night
And hide by day
In vain trying not
To be seen with you
Truth is just darling
Love commands
Me to serve the holy
Bastions of your heart
Truth pervades my every
Vow of love for you
Just sacred peace
Has laid the foundation of
Tenderness on the red
Carpet of love
For you and me
To exchange the kisses
To cement the reasonableness
Of the love we share
I cannot unbind my love
To anyone but you
Don't make me cry
I cannot live my life thrice
To the happy fullest
When I hear your voice
On the phone without
Bursting into tears when
You talk like that and
You urge me to accept
The meaning you have brought
Into my burgeoning happiness

Don't cry
You are part of my life now
I cannot betray you now
I cannot desert you now
My baby
CRY
There is nobody
To compare
You bowl me over
When you bring love
In it's purest form
Unrestricted to me
