MATE IN MY CHAMBER

Two different souls who sleep together
From different habitats
Mark the true sense of a miracle
So you’re like my soul
My Ɔkra Abena
You mate in my chamber

II
Your comfort in my presence
You acting guard in my rest
Your soothing voice in my sadness
Your daily calls to water my wellbeing
All add up to the miracle you are
You mate in my chamber

III
Many are those who’ll see you as meat
…fit for one meal
But you’re my personalized Dove
…Just like the one who descended on Jesus
…after his baptism
The only difference
You’re always in my home
…and my room as a wonder to be seen
You’re the best friend from another realm
If you’re not a gift, then I have no words to describe you
You mate in my chamber!

IV
I’ve seen you hatch and dispatch
You’ve seen me cry and laugh
You’ve felt my absence
…and I’ve felt yours in your travels
I’ve heard you assure and reassure
And I’ve felt you love in flight
Many miracles have blessed my world
But you’re one of the ultimate miracles
In my ordinary but grateful chamber
You Dove in my air net

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. :)
