The Day We Met - Poem by Chizom Okpara
The day we met
The first time we met was a Saturday night
I was sure that this was love at first sight
You were sitting with your friends talking and giggling
When I got up to talk to you my heart was pounding.
The first words I say to you are ‘can I buy you a drink’
Then I walked away and gave you a wink
I walk over to her with a glass that’s full
And as she sipped her drink I tell her ‘your eyes are beautiful.’
I ask her what’s your name, she says its grace
I say you know you have the most wonderful face
If you be my girl I will never leave you I’m not a traitor
And by the way way my names John Slater
We soon get married
Then in grace a baby was carried
We then buy a house and move in together
Because we know our love will last for ever.
