For Thee


BOUNTIFULLY for you I sing these songs of beauty,
My heart jamboree to show-
Thou Angel of beauty.

READY for thee my heart yearn,
Panting in endless expectation-
Awaiting to embrace thee tight upon my bossom.

EVER for thee shall I clamour; that
If thou did be a sin-
Gladly shall I commit thee.

NEVER for thee shall I leave a trend of sorrow,
Nor the scouching sun steal thy peace-
For thy tears with kisses I shall wipe.

DEAREST for thee, is the joy of my work,
All I've got is you to gambol on the hallmark of joy-
That thy happiness may know no bound.

AS for me, thy pains my pain,
Thy sorrows, my sorrows-
That the path of happiness we tread together.

ONLY for thee, the longing of my joy,
Thou a precious gift unto thy family-
And to the world, A PEARL OF HAPPINESS

KINDLY for thee, the prayers of my heart,
For mercy's sake thee to keep-
All through the days of your living.

ASPIRING for thee, the Almighty I praise,
Life to thee gave with blessing's assurance-
Keeping thee in thy goings.

FROM thee I plead,
Thy tears wipe off and thy fears cast away-
For ahead lies a great future to feature thee a QUEEN.

OBVIOUSLY to thee, my heart cling,
For the beauty of thy heart indomitable: that-
Me, courage thou giveth to swim the ocean of trials.

REALLY for thee, I sing these songs,
Songs from the vocal of a poet to a fairy-
With a heart DIVINE for humanity.

[A special dedication to a special friend whose name is formed by the first word of every verse. BRENDA OKAFOR]

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
