POEM By Usman Sani Muhammad

Written by Editor

Be the basket that harbors the fruit in my heart,

Let your fresh heart lure me to a destination where only you shall lead.

I want to feel your breath from the corner of my ears,

I want to feel you and your soft and tender heart that has kept me fit,

From a point I see in dreams,
You made it come true,

I want to drink from the honey of your love,
Not that extracted from bees,
But from the innermost part of your love and heart.

You’re surely marvelous and Keen to my heart,
You breath in life to it.

I bow to present it to you in tissue,
Let it absorb the sweet smell of our bright future,
Hold to it with care, as it shall serve your majesty.

Smiles alone can’t page my happiness and calmness you instill in me,

My heart needs you,
Do not dark it.

My lung needs you like an air,

My sight needs you just like light,

My hand ache wanting to feel you by my side,

Be that theme I only desire to see.
