IN YOUR AWESOME BOOK

I look at you
And can’t stop my thoughts from racing back
Racing back to all the times I lost
…in love forest
Before getting to this palace

II
Although I swerved a lot of trouble
I did get bitten by a snake
And got kicked by an antelope and hit by a goat
…all of which I could’ve made meat out of
…but let go
I got spat on by a mad elephant
And thanked God I wasn’t stepped on
And all the while you were here
Majestic
…patient
…handsome
…kind
…loving
…caring
…tendering to me in your dreams
How did I get so lucky?

III
I’ll love you more
Till you or I live no more
I’ll hold you up
Until you forget what it’s like to be down
I’ll be a sky with no clouds
…when it comes to you
When you need a ground to walk on
I’ll be one with no stones nor sticks nor thorns to hurt
For your divine light on me
…deserves its turn
And I’ll so deliver

IV
So keep on being the you I love
Just keep on being the being I treasure
Oooo keep on being the treasure I have saved
…just for me
And I’ll keep on being the best name
…in your awesome book
Till our forever

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. :)
