ALAO By Feyintola Sakinah

Written by Bada Yusuf Amoo

I feel empty without him,
he moves me,
he makes me believe
that I can easily face my fears

I gave him a spoon of love
and reciprocate
with overflowing stream of love

He picks me up
and takes me to a far place,
a beautiful place
where nothing but
love and care exist

He makes my worries
a beautiful memory,
my heart is overflowing
with joy and love,
the joy he brings to me and
the love I have for him

He is the waking thought
and the last memory on my mind
as I drift off to sleep

There is a longing in my heart
that someday
we will become a reality

I want him,
I need him as I need food,
air and water.

Where is Alao?
