How I Meet Her Part1


Imagining how the world will be
Under a beautiful shady tree
No one by my side
At moment am all right
Sooner i hear an inner voice
Directed me to make a choice
To think vast like the ocean
And remain constant in motion
How can this small head think vast, i asked
Remember the God of past, the voice faxed
Wondering, how the sky contain the mist
Contemplating how the forest hold it's beast
My imagination grew wild
Like a poisonous bile

Under the shady tree
I became very free
I leaned back
Sudden the clouds turn dark
My heart begins to beat
Stomach said, i haven't eat
Still in my sit
I remain fit
The wind blow down many flower
Sooner it began to shower

Happy i was under the tree
From the showers i am free
There she run
Like an engine fun
Escaping the rain
She run in pain
Panting like a deer
Holding her said, oh! my dear
Though she was wet
Holding her like my pet
Where you from she asked
Next Avenue she faxed
Shivering with hands in her pocket
I gently gave out my jacket
She said you are kind
Replied never mind

Sooner the rain stop
Still no food in my pot
Can you escort me home
From this quiet zone
As we began to walk
She starts her flattering talk
Hold her like she is mine
Having in thought she is fine
We arrived at her gate
Almost half past eight
The house was quiet like a cemetery
Began to draw its symmetry

My heart began to ponder
Leaving my mind to wonder
I asked where is your mother
She is a busy barrister
What of your father
He is a minister
She stop to look me cry
Charlie why
My answer lies in the sky
I have to leave baby
My tummy goes crazy
What is wrong with it
Taken too much meat
No need to worry
I am sorry

To strangers you care
For me, you always there

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
