`i am not jealous (for ruth ugbang)


i am not jealous
of your love;
for your love
is like a torn
In my heart
like a fire
and a spark
burning my desire.
in my home
you give me hope
now I can cope
in this world
without love
and I am not
jealous
tho' you sing
a new song
to a new one
but I am not
jealous
because
you thought
me to love
in this world
without love
so I am not
jealous
and I will not
be jealous
because
your song
is for love
you are all
i have longed
so I am not
jealous.
my love, my faith
i have been
in the rain,
please kill
out the rage
your love
is no
option
fate
defines
our days
so you will not
be jealous
because I am not
jealous
i am not
jealous
