ILLUSION By Mujaheeda Olorunju Zakariyyah

Written by Editor

I saw you walk up to me like an angel.
Your smile lightened up my world full of darkness.
You opened my eyes to wonderful view of the moonlight.
And you brought me into your world of ecstatic dreams.

At every step I took you were there,
Close were you to guide my baby steps.
With your sweet words and gentle looks,
You get your way and melted my ice cold heart.

Oh! I pray this day never ends as I closed my eyes,
But you left me with no assurance,
When I woke up, you were never there.
Now I realize it was all a dream, an illusion.
