Peter Daniel Phiri Poems
If I Find Time, I Will Love You
I'm a hustler, I have to keep moving.
Money is my business, yours is loving me.
Don't place too much hope on eyeing another eclipse,
It may take a lifetime.
Please smile, don't waste your precious tears my dear.
If I find time, I will love you.
I can't promise you or society anything,
If I do, I deserve punishment.
But I'm certain I'll make it in life.
Let me pack my bags again;
I'm going globetrotting.
I can hear the sound of water in Victoria Falls.
I'm afraid I will take another leap of faith.
I will mount an elephant and proceed to ...
How come you smile?
With so much pain in your soul?
How come you look sad? ,
With so much love in your heart?
Why do you whisper?
When your spirit is roaring like a lion?
Why is it then?
That silent tears find their way on a beautiful face like yours?
