Treasure Island

Babatunde Aremu


Worthy Neighbour


We were not born by the same parents
His blood varies from mine
We were not related at all
Perchance we came together
Sharing the same roof
Breathing similar air
Drinking same water
In joy, he is there
He shares in my griefs
The first I see daily
The last to bid me good night
He is my integral part
Closer than a blood brother
He is my worthy neighbour
Ever faithful, never failing
If you have a good neighbour
Cuddle him or her
Never allow any crack to occur
For a worthy neighbour
Is worth more than many brothers afar

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
