POEM: Love Like Flower

This is the first guest post on my blog. And I'm excited about it. It is a poem written by my friend, Ekene. I like it and thought I should share :)


A flower grows from beneath a blanket
Of fine and purest white
It reaches toward the sun for warmth,
For heat and for the light
My love for you grows stronger still,
Despite the surrounding cold
My heart is yours,
For yours has it been sold

Its petals shine from morning dew
Its stem grows stiff and strong
It stands strong through the freezing cold
It stands the winter long
I long for you, for your soft touch
I miss the way you smile
The longer that we stay apart
The longer every mile

The flower stretches through the snow
It reaches toward the sun
And now without you the color is gone
The flower's petals, dun
But as we talk, and as we learn
The flower comes back to life
The snow now melts and goes away
As you take away my strife

Spring is here and growth begins
As you and I are one
We are together, we are in love
The snow for now is done
I see the future, in dreams I have
Of our life, long and true
I see the times where all I need
Are comforting words from you

I see the times when winter comes
As winter tends to do
But we still love, and we still live
And I do still love you
And so we live,
A life with much to see
With love we live, to live we love
Happy together are we

I see the flower, older now,
But still strong with fresh new leaves
I see it growing, tall and strong
Reaching to the eaves
Years have passed
But together are we
And strong is our love till today
As strong as it can be.

Amakamedia said...

LOL. It depends on how you see it o. Perception is everything.

Raymond Dalu said...

The guy was obviously in love.

Amakamedia said...

C'mon Ray, I'm not disputing that fact. But "you" is actually an entity. It can be an object, a person, a cause or even nature. Look deeply.
