THE LOVER I WANT TO BE

I don’t want to be your weakness
Neither do I want to be your meekness
I want to be the strength you use
…to counter all abuse
I want to be the guts you get
…to fly your success jet
I want to be that light in your dark
…to help you make your mark
I want to be the energy you get high on
…to fly high and be looked upon
That is the lover I want to be
…to you

Ib
I want to be the breath in your bresthlessness
I want to be lengthlessness in all your lengths
I want to be possibility when you reach the land of impossibilities
I want to be the fun in all your bores
I want to be the smile in all your anger
I want to be your bravery in all your fears
I want to be the calm in all your anger
That is the lover I want to be
…to you

II
Be your own weakness and let me be your cure
Be your own doubts and let me be your sure
Be your own enemy and let me be your knightess
…killing the cowardly you to birth a warrior to match this Countess
That is the lover I want to be
…to you

III
If you need a flaw to man you up
Let it be my kindness which shuts you up
If you need a strain to help your bargain
Let it be my need to help you gain
I want to be everything sunny
…every anticipatory cloud when the sun is loud
…every grateful rain in your droughts
…every blessed air in your heat
Which nurse you to grow to my praise
I want to be the revival for your survival even through your stress
That is the lover, that is oh the lover I want to be
…to you

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
