Yes, it’s almost here – Valentine’s day! And with the elections postponed in Nigeria, the celebration of love can go on. Yesterday, I stumbled upon an old book of mine and my husband and I had a good laugh as we went over some of the poems I wrote back then. Here are a few:
One of your jokes would brighten my evening
One of your smiles would bring sunlight in what seems like a dark night
One look in your eyes would be like discovering the twinkle of the stars
Even the darkest night is beautiful when I’m with you
Your love is like a fountain, refreshing
Your company is like a balm, soothing
Your words are like honey, sweet
And you are like wine, intoxicating
Somebody please tell me
What is this feeling I feel
I want to say it’s more than love
But knowing love is the greatest, I’ll say it’s the greatest love
It’s strong, sweet, energizing, overwhelming
Soothing, comforting, encouraging
My feelings are raging…
He speaks and I listen
Each word is like a piece of polished diamond
So valuable, I must treasure it
And store it away in some safe compartment
I hear more than words, I hear heartbeat
That seems to give the rhythm for the sweetest love song
I love this tune, therefore I dance with all pleasure and delight
Because I am in love
I wish you love and happiness this season and always. And I encourage you to add to your gift for that special someone an expression of your affection in words.
The floor’s now open. Feel free to share here some of the beautiful ‘lyrics you dropped’ when you fell in love.
